None of the third party swf2exe tools provide support for online activation but I know that SWF Studio
(my product) and Zinc (inferior product) both allow you to set some options to create trial versions of your software. I'm pretty sure that mProjector does NOT offer a similar feature out of the box, but someone will surely correct me if I'm wrong
With SWF Studio you can set your application to either expire on
a specific date or expire after
a given number of days. You can also select an alternate SWF to run once your trial period has expired. This expiry swf
you supply gives you a LOT of control because you can use it to implement any kind of unlock system you can come up with. The expiry SWF can just display an "expiry" message, it can ask for a hard coded password or it can contact a server and validate the installation (i.e. online activation).
Check out this simple expiry demo application
. It comes with source so you can see how it works. If you decide to try SWF Studio and you need some help getting this done quickly, we can help you out or even build it for you if you have the budget for it.
If you just want to wrap your Flash EXE up with something that gives you exactly the feature you're looking for you might want to check out one of these protection/licensing systems. Both have been bought up by Digital River
, a huge company that offers all kinds of e-commerce solutions including a number of credit card processing services. That's not an endorsement, just a statement of fact.
