Re: Visual Basic 3

Well I have XP and 2000 machines, do you think it would install on either of those?

Visual Basic 3

Does anyone have a copy of VB3 they would be willing to give or sell me? Or know where I can find one?

Re: how much effort?

Interesting question, I put in exactly as much effort as is necessary for the solution to be maintainable and decipherable, and not an ounce more.

I specifically name any object that I work with...

Re: How about displaying threads somewhere within a mile of the top of the page?

Wow. Who would have predicted that a thread complaining about ad placement would turn into the stock political argument of AWF?

On second thought, probably anyone familiar with this forum would...

Sounds like you've got it pretty well worked out - I hope your deployment goes well.

Re: limit number of installs

Also, what stops them from copying the mde to multiple computers after activation?

Re: limit number of installs

Yes, thats a creative solution, but not really what I'd call a commercial distribution . . . what if you wanted to sell 5000 copies, that would be a ridiculous amount of work!

Re: limit number of installs

It looks like you have a good start, I hope it works well for you.
I may not be understanding your code properly, but it looks like they could enter any value and as long as that value hadn't been...

Re: limit number of installs

Having a custom built installer kind of means you aren't doing a commercial distribution, right?

If you do a phone home scenario, if you don't encrypt the communication, there is nothing to stop...

Re: limit number of installs

So what's to stop them from running the installer on another computer with the same activation key? How does the prepackaged program know that a particular activation key has already been used?

Re: limit number of installs

Well it is pretty easy to have a code that is too much trouble to hack. The issue is how does the Access application know that the activation has occured, and how do you keep people from fooling the...

Re: limit number of installs

Right, well now we are back to what is appropriate for different scenarios.
If you are attempting to sell a commercial product, then there is incentive to get it for free.

Re: limit number of installs

Obviously you won't want to discuss exactly how this works in a public forum, but I am curious about how you accomplish this. For instance, once your program is intalled on one computer, what stops...

Re: limit number of installs

Re: limit number of installs

I would be very interested to see what you come up with. Does your process include "phoning home"?

I am curious because one problem I have run into is that a lot of antivirus software, and even...

Re: Hard Problem (long, sorry) Sum totals = too much

Did you try it? From your explanation of the problem, you DO want unique records. If 2 programs show up in the same day, that would still be 2 unique records, assuming you have a key field. If you...

I have had that happen to me before. Is your report based on a query? It might help you trace your problem if you make a select query that shows the correct records (i.e., no doubles) and then base...
