Licence Protector offers the option to send usage metrics like number of trial installations or information about the computer hardware to the activation server. The feature is by default turned of and you have to enable it if you want to use it.

 

What kind of data is sent

By default, a pre-configured data set is sent when you enable the metrics usage.

 

Operating system

Platform type

Physical memory

Screen resolution

User language of the operating system

Top locations (countries)

 

This information is sent only once per computer even if multiple events (like install demo version) are recorded.

 

 

 

 

 

Events which can be recorded

The data is sent on selected events like first time installation or product activation or even during each program start.

 

There are a couple of pre-defined events

 

First installation of an application

First time a demo version is installed

First product activation of the main module

First activation of any module. This allows to track the product activation of any module in the license file

Any start of the application will track how often the application was started

Any product deactivation or license transfer.

 

 

 

In addition to that you can record any custom program events, e.g. every time a user selects a menu item or processes a functionality you want to record.

 

Tracking of data

The data can be sent anonymous (recommended) or linked to a specific Serial Number. Linking the data to a serial number allows to get more insight how a specific customer is using your application (feature not yet available).

 

Transactions

Each event counts as a transaction. It is recorded with the transaction type: Metric Data
