StarForce ProActive copy protection allows us to protect our downloadable product versions against illegal copying in the best way. The system requires no special skill to integrate protection and allows us to protect selected files of a program thus optimizing the protection implementation. The activation of the protected program has nothing difficult which is acknowledged and approved by a client. An additional feature allowing the product activation via the StarForce server or even by fax is very convenient. A possibility to recheck each of the activations of a Serial Number via the StarForce Server provides the maximum transparency of performance.
During the two years of cooperation with StarForce no significant problems occurred. If some end user had problems with activation, it was instantly determined that the user made a mistake when entering a Serial Number in 99% of cases.
StarForce customer support deserves special praise. The customer support service is notable for its quick reply and help during the protection system integration.
All this supplements the service package provided by StarForce and makes it complete.
