Portable.Licensing: Portable.Licensing 1.0.0 released

Added by Daniel Nauck over 5 years ago

Portable.Licensing is a cross platform software licensing framework which allows you to implement licensing into your application or library. It provides you all tools to create and validate licenses for your software.

Portable.Licensing is using the latest military strength, state-of-the-art cryptographic algorithm to ensure that your software and thus your intellectual property is protected.

It is targeting the Portable Class Library and thus runs on nearly every .NET/Mono profile including Silverlight, Windows Phone, Windows Store App, Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.Mac and XBox 360. Use it for your Desktop- (WinForms, WPF, etc.), Console-, Service-, Web- (ASP.NET, MVC, etc.), Mobile (Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android) or even LightSwitch applications.


  • runs on .NET >= 4.0.3, Silverlight >= 4, Windows Phone >= 7.5, Windows Store Apps, Mono, Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.Mac, XBox 360
  • easy creation and validation of your licenses
  • trial, standard and subscription licenses
  • cryptographic signed licenses, no alteration possible
  • allows you to enable/disable program modules or product features
  • limit various parameters for your software, e.g. max transactions, etc.
  • add additional key/value pair attributes to your licenses
  • easily extend the fluent validation API with extension methods

FastForward.NET: Beta 4 Release

Added by Craig Sutherland almost 9 years ago

It’s been a while, I’ve been side tracked with trying to track some performance issues with CC.NET. I have just posted the binaries for the fourth beta – although most of the changes have been around for a few weeks. The following items have been added/fixed:

  • Swapped Ok and Cancel buttons
  • Cleaned up the settings dialog so the name of the tab is not on each button within the tab
  • Added a double-click action to the all projects grid – the user can choose which action to perform
  • Added servers and projects to the system tray – clicking on a project triggers the double click action

I am running this as my CC.NET monitor and it seems to be working. I know there are a couple of issues with configuration that need to be resolved, otherwise it is ready for release :)

The binaries can be downloaded from
