DeployLX Software Protection System

LicenseServer..::..Register Method

Registers the specified license.


Protected Overridable Function Register ( _
	context As ServerRequestContext, _
	registrationInfo As LicenseValuesDictionary, _
	autoRegister As Boolean _
) As Boolean
protected virtual bool Register(
	ServerRequestContext context,
	LicenseValuesDictionary registrationInfo,
	bool autoRegister


Reference to a ServerRequestContext for the current request.
Collection of name/value pairs representing the fields of the registration form.
Indicates if the request to register is a result of an automatic registration.

Return Value

Returns true if the registration was successful, otherwise false;


The default implementation does nothing and simply returns true.

Note If you make changes to the original license that should be sent back to the client you must call NotifyModification(Limit) to ensure those changes are sent.

Values of the Properties Collection

MachineProfile The client machine's profile hash. Same as passed in the machineProfileHash parameter.
MachineProfile.Absolute The client machine's profile hash. The actual profile of the machine if the MachineProfile entry was overridden.
LicensedType The full name of the Type being validated including namespace.
LicensedAssemblyThe full name of the assembly being validated.
LicensedAssemblyNameThe display (or short) name of the assembly being validated. Does not include the version or culture information.
LicensedAssemblyVersionThe version of the assembly being validated.
IsServiceRequestIndicates if the validating process is a Windows service or an ASP.NET XML Web Service.
IsWebRequestIndicates if the validating process is an ASP.NET application (but not an ASP.NET XML Web Service).
IsManagerRequestIndicates if the request originated from the DeployLX Manager and not from the client machine.
* Additional values may be included by the limit that initiated the request. Check the documentation of the limit to see if any other values can be included with the server request.


This sample demonstrates a very basic implementation of a license server's Register method. For complete information on license servers see the License Servers in DeployLX Licensing topic.
