Elementi software is licensed, not sold. SpinetiX uses a node-locked licensing model with a centralized license server that provides activation codes to computers running Elementi. SpinetiX grants to you a license, that is non-exclusive and non-sub-licensable, to use the Elementi software indefinitely (subject to license revalidation) for your own use and only on a single node (computer / virtual machine) at any given time. For more details on this subject, see the End User License Agreement page.
Software \"cracking\" is the act of directly modifying the source code of a software applicationto bypass its licensing system entirely. As much as vendors hate to hear it: all applicationsinstalled on an end-users device are susceptible to cracking.
Software cracks usually only work for a single version of a particular application, sincethe application code itself is modified to bypass any license checks (meaning a softwareupdate often requires an updated crack for the new application code.) Distributing acracked version of an application falls on the bad actor.
Some applications will have a central point in the bytecode where this check happens, but othersharden their system by inlining the license key checks, making the work of a bad actor wanting tocrack the software much, much harder. But licensing is all essentially the same: it's a seriesof conditionals.
But remember, a crack != a keygen, so your application's licensing always runsthe risk of being circumvented via code modification. But license keys cannotbe forged when you utilize a licensing system built on modern cryptography.
However, despite being broken up into steps, this falls prey to the same methods of cracking used for the normal process. The process used to create an activation key that is checked against the original CD key was quickly discovered, and generators that incorporate both of the keys were made.

This particular loop hole is easily fixed by the user. Simply use an 11 digit passcode or random 8 character alphanumeric passcode, with symbol e.g Gx-193pl. It would take a few hundred years to crack that passcode as it stands now. 153554b96e
