TurboActivate is the part of LimeLM you include with your app, allowing you to add online and offline activation. TurboActivate comes in 2 parts: the library and the wizard. The TurboActivate library must be included with your application to add trial support along with serial number and online activation protection to your app.
The TurboActivate wizard is completely optional but recommended. It's a pre-written activation wizard (like you see when you install Microsoft Office) that you can include with your app.
