In a typical scenario, vendors use the expiration date to prevent a perpetual usage of the software. However there are cases in which the customer is allowed to perpetually use software Version X, but not Version X+1. In order to address such scenarios, SLASCONE licenses carry an optional maximum software release information, which indicates the latest purchased version. Once an installation is upgraded to a not purchased version, SLASCONE returns a corresponding warning/error.
One great benefit of SLASCONE is that after the initial license key distribution, you will never have to send new license codes again, eliminating whatever administrative burden on your and your customer’s side. License changes are managed centrally in SLASCONE and propagated to the customer’s installation.
