[list=1] How does my application get access to the key typed in the Activation Dialog? My application uses the registration key to enable certain features, like 'PRO' features. Can activation be used with system services? My application can be started as either an application or a System Service. When my product is launched as an application, activation works fine. However, when it's launched as a system service, the activation dialogs come up on an invisible desktop and the user cannot interact with them, even to dismiss them. (Even the trail fails because the dialogs still come up asking if you want to evaluate the product—hanging the service load.) Can I indicate an entire range or block of serial numbers as N uses? I know I can set individual serial numbers to N uses, but I want to upload a bunch of "enterprise' licenses and I want them to be N uses (like 100) Where is there some sample code to invoke the WebService? I found some paragraph that said it exists, and it gives a function prototype, and then points to a bunch of XML… um.. any more help than this? Any help here would be great. Support for Activating for a System Service could be accomplished if there was an API that would allow me to manage the UI myself (basically suppressing the trial dialogs until the trial period is over) Then when the trial ends, my service could simply 'not work' and issue a message the to the Service Event Log that "This service needs activation blah, blah, blah." Granted it's probably less secure than your "baked in" dialogs, but would at least give guys like me that want activation for their System Service. Thank you for any feed back.
