Excel Software launches AppProtect 2.0 to protect Mac or Windows software
Excel Software has launched AppProtect 2.0, which applies protection and a vendor-controlled or fully automated online-activation process to a compiled application to protect Mac or Windows software.
AppProtect wraps a Mac or Windows application with an activation process that requires a computer-unique password or serial number on first launch.
- Excel Software provides vendor accounts for the Safe Activation service or a vendor can self-host an activation server using Web Activation
- AppProtect 2.0 on Windows adds the ability to embed static data files into the executable
- For an application constructed from an interpreted language or requiring external data files, the unprotected files are are no longer accessible by the user
- Allows a secure licence to be applied and simplifies the user experience since the entire application is distributed as a single file
- Offers encryption and decryption features that enable Cycling 74 Max5 programmers to protect and license the software they create
- Supplements the standard protection available to all applications with five additional, optional layers of protection
- Each protection layer works independently so the developer can customise the protection for a specific application
- Can be used to protect a standard Mac OS X application (.app) or Windows executable (.exe)
- Includes a printed and PDF user guide with pop-up help screens that allow anyone to protect and license an application without programming skills
Excel Software has introduced Version 7.0 of its WinA&D software, which is said to support requirements management, system and software design, code generation and flexible report generation.
MEP designers and engineers have started trending toward providing 3D design-intent models produced in software such as Autodesk Revit or Autodesk AutoCAD MEP.
Photonic Systems Inc (PSI) is using the ELECTRO 2D/RS field simulator from INTEGRATED Engineering Software to speed up development in the design of modulators and sensors.
At JEC Composites on 10–12 March 2015, CGTech will highlight the importance of simulation when trimming composite parts. Throughout the show, which will take place at the Paris Expo, Porte de Versailles, the company will also demonstrate VERICUT Composite Applications: VERICUT Composite Paths for Engineering (VCPe), VERICUT Composite Programming (VCP) and VERICUT Composite Simulation (VCS).
In this paper the question will be discussed where and when the expense of a CoSimulation with two established simulation tools such as 1) Matlab/Simulink and 2) FLUX is worthwhile. A linear actuator is used as an example, which is simplified and abstracted from a real part due to confidentiality reasons.
