Licensing for MS-Access Applications

QLM protects your MS-Access application with the same level of functionality and license protection that are supported with VB.NET. With QLM MS-Access License Protection, you can provide permanent, trial or subscription based licensing to your customers. Your customers can easily activate their license online when connected to the internet or offline if they are not connected to the internet.

Our extensive license protection API is fully supported on MS-Access VBA.

In order to prompt the user for a license key and activate it, you simply launch the QLM License Wizard from your MS-Access sheet. The QLM License Wizard eliminates the need to develop any complex code in your MS-Access VBA module to capture a license key and activate it. The QLM License Wizard is a standalone application that you launch from your MS-Access application. For more details about invoking the QLM License Wizard, refer to this article.

To help you get started, we provide a sample MS-Access application that you can use as a reference to implement licensing in your own MS-Access application. The sample is located in the following folder: 

  • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Quick License Manager\Samples\qlmpro\Windows\MSAccess2003

The files that you need distribute with your MS-Access application are listed in this article.

 You should also read our Step by Step guide to protecting an MS-Access application with licensing.
