Using an OEM License for a distributed model application

Hi! We used a temporary license to try out the software and everything worked fine, but we are looking at getting an OEM license.

In the code, you reference the license for each product, then you put the license file in the same folder as the DLL. That all works fine. But if we are distributing an application, it seems like the distributed app would need that license file in the installation. But that doesn’t make sense, because then anyone who had access to it could use that license file. So I think I’m missing something. How does it work with the distributed application?


It is recommended to use the license file as an embedded resource in your application, which will enable you to avoid any potential problems with the license file upon deployment. For example, see the details on Licensing document (for Aspose.Words for .NET) for your reference. See another document on Aspose.Cells Licensing for your further reference.

Moreover, you can protect your license file by using encoding/decoding techniques:
License Protection.

Hope, this helps a bit.
