Software licensing and piracy protection

Christopher H Updated by Christopher H

To prevent piracy, a CFS program needs to know that it has been licensed. Our programs use either of two methods to register that they have been licensed:

  • License Code
  • Email address

For many years the License Code method was the most common method used. In recent years, we introduced the Email Address method so users didn't have to remember or look up a License Code.

Determining the registration method of your program

To determine which method is being used by the software you are using do the following:

  1. In the main screen of the program, click File > Firm Information on the menu bar.
  2. On the Firm Information window look for a License Code field located towards the top-right corner of the window.
    1. If the License Code field is present, a License Code is used for registration. See Using a License Code to access a program.
    2. If the License Code field is not present, the program uses an email for registration. See Using an email address to access a program.

How did we do?
