Hi! I have installed the Online Activation Kit, and have configured online activation and hardware lock. However, once a user downloads the file from my website, and activates it, they are still easily able to transfer it to friends using Shared Drives (DropBox, GDrive, OneDrive). Thereafter, the recipient is able to download, activate again and use the software easily.
Also, after every download, the Windows Security and Anti-Virus constantly warn users not to open the file, even though they are digitally signed.
The online validation does not work, for which I already have a ticket opened.
Can you please explain:
a) What I am doing wrong, such that users are freely able to distribute a copy of the compiled file?
b) How else can we prevent Windows and other anti-viruses from scaring the user away with so many prompts blocking the file?
