VMProtect protects code by executing it on a virtual machine with non-standard architecture that makes it extremely difficult to analyze and crack the software. Besides that, VMProtect generates and verifies serial numbers, limits free upgrades and much more.
Supported Files And Formats
VMProtect supports both 32 and 64-bits executable files, dynamically loaded libraries and drivers. This includes screensavers, Active-X components, BPL libraries and other files in PE-format. Protected files are run on almost any version of Windows, even old Windows 95! However, licensing feature requires at least Windows 2000.
VMProtect doesn’t support .NET executables and has a limited support of VB executables.
The Ultimate edition of VMProtect allows to add serial numbers to the protected application with minimal efforts. The feature is supported by PayPro Global e-commerce provider, so you even don’t need to setup your own serial number generator (of course, you can do that if you really need).
Licensing feature allows to limit the period of free updates, set the time of life of serial number, prevent the code execution without serial numbers and much more. Any serial number can be blocked and newly protected files will not accept it.
The Professional and Ultimate editions of VMProtect have a console version that supports command line parameters and can be used in automatic building process. It fully supports scripts, watermarks, serial numbers and all the other features of VMProtect.
VMProtect features two modes of the user interface: simple and expert. Simple mode allows to easily pick functions for protection, adjust options and get the protected file with just a few mouse clicks.
