Expiry date saved as feature value

Expiry date saved as feature value

Postby djnickburrett » October 4th, 2019, 5:45 pm

I have an expiry date saved in the feature values.

1. Can I get my Adobe Air application to display the expiry date in my software.

2. Can I get my Adobe Air application to call turbo activate after the expiry date rather than every 30 days?

Thanks
Nick

TA_GetFeature()

No. But you can handle the expiration by intelligently giving your customers the option of renewing (rather than just dumbly polling, give them the best way to give you money).

Dumbly polling means calling Turbo Activate every 30 days?

No, I mean checking every day or every run of the app.

So if I don't enable checking every day or every run of the app then people could always run the app regardless of whether they have paid for it or not?

How is that a solution?

Use TA_IsGenuineEx() with the settings we have in the example article and example app (90, 30). If you have a separate expiration time (i.e. custom license fields) then check that also using TA_IsDateValid.
