Implementing new licenses.


About a week ago I experimented with two other license options, one that allows you to use the current version without updates and one for lifetime updates. After the setup, all seemed to be working fine until a user contacted me saying he could not activate the license, and then a second user contacted me with the same issue.. Ouch, that is what happends when you do not throughly test your licensing system. I took for granted that since my first license was working the rest will work too. That proved to be wrong and it has taught me a lesson, which is ‘Never to trust your licensing system’.. I am kidding of course, but the lesson here is to not take anything for granted (at least in web development) and to always test every new implementation on your test site before making it live, even if you are 90-99.99% it will work.

That being said, I am still working on the bug that is causing the activation issue and hopefully will get it resolved in the next few weeks. At the end of the day, there will be 3 licenses available:

  • 1 – One for the current version (no updates).
  • 2 – A regular license which comes with one year of updates.
  • 3 – A lifetime license with updates forever (or at least as long as I exist 🙂

The license will be issued based on set contribution amounts which will look something like $8, $12, $18.

Well, that is it for now. Thank you for stopping by and for your interest in MusicZen. Enjoy the rest of your day.
