Hi all:

We are planning to distribute the product to the customer now but we are
still new to it,
we hope to get some ideas and valuable feedbacks from all of you.

1. Product customer number and serial number.
What is the better way to encrypt and decrypt it?
How to control the user from copying to another pc?

2. SQL DB
During installation of the product, how do we install the SQL 2005 Express
automatically?
How do we create instance and db automatically?

Thanks a lot for any comments.

Regards,
TOMMS

Look into Install Anywhere and a package like SQL-Packager from Red-Gate

2b) We wrote our own program to handle the creation and updating of the database
schema.
Our assumption is that the database server already exists (most cases that is
true) and only a new database needs to be created. The database may already be
created, so that is an option too.

1) For security/control, I have this link.
I have NOT used this. I believe someone posted the link in one of the other PB
forums.
http://www.softwarekey.com/

I have no idea if it would work with a PB exe or not. If you decide to try it,
please post back your results!
