Xheo Shmeo

I have found a name for my pain. I call it Xheo DeployX . I have been working on a new license server for about the past month and I am really at my wits end. It is rare that I come to such a point in a project, but I would like to give up.

For those of you who don't know Deployx is a software license package for .NET. It is very complete with a lot of features and is also very expensive. We would like to use it to write our own centralize licensing server so that corporate users could simplify deployment (and we could get paid for what we are doing - a big change). Unfortunately it is a black box and a brick sXXt house. I don't know how it works, I don't know how it is supposed to work if it did work. I don't know when it is working and when it is not working. All I know is that is it not doing what I hoped it would do.

The documentation is minimal and the support staff surly (when they answer at all). If there were any other product that might be able to do my job I would have bought it.

Depression... depression... depression.

I'm getting ready to buy DeployLX licensing system Professional, too. I ran across your posts today and am curious whether you ever got the licensing server fully working?

What type of license process do you plan to use with your product?
