Using SOLO Server

Evaluation

Testing integration with SOLO Server is a snap with Protection PLUS 5 SDK. Since the Protection PLUS 5 SDK samples are all pre-configured to work with a generic Instant SOLO Server test account, you can start by signing-in to its web interface at https://secure.softwarekey.com/solo/authors/ using the following login credentials:

Then, add a test license to get a License ID and Password.

Going Live

Once you have tested the sample applications, sign up for your own SOLO Server trial account. This is necessary to allow your software to be activated online and to use the optional e-commerce features.

Important

Before you distribute production copies of your application, it is imperative that you update your application for your SOLO Server account.

Once your account is configured, your application is configured for your account, you are ready to sign-in to SOLO Server, configure your products, and request account activation to start licensing your application!
