Access Registration Seminar
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   6 years ago

In the Access Registration Seminar you will learn how to protect your Access database so you can give or sell it to others, and they will be required to register their copy of the database with you. This prevents theft and piracy, and protects your intellectual property. Topics include:

- Discussion of database security concepts and our registration scheme
- How to create a startup form that autoruns when the database opens
- How to read and write values to the Windows Registry for a specific user
- Generating random numbers and developing a security key algorithm
- Timing out registrations after a specific time period. Great for subscriptions

This seminar is 50 minutes long. Click here for more information on the Access Registration Seminar including a complete course outline, sample videos, and lots more.

Alex, I would like to see something that is more secure than using the registry in such a well known location with unencrypted data - and yes I know you could encrypt the data before you put it out to the registry.  Items such as the those mentioned by Rick in his Summary remarks of this Seminar would be good. Of course, putting your own solution together using the various aspects of all these Seminars together is always possible. Read More...

This is a quick note for those reading this forum and is a follow-up to Patrick Russell's 8/19/15 post. The "VB and VBE Program Settings" folder in the registry - if it doesn't exist - will be created in the path Rick has shown in the Seminar when you first use the SaveSetting function. The Path is automatically created by the OS followed by your settings located in that path. This behaviour was observed on Windows 10. Read More...

Although I haven't tested this on my ambualance database yet (not ready for prime time yet ), I was wondering if potential customers' anti-virus software would prohibit writing to their registries?  Seems to me that this could be a potential problem... Read More...
