    Deployment of Database 1 per CPU (2002)

    Is there anyway to limit i copy per CPU.
    I'm going to install a beta version of my app on my clients' computer but not give her the disks.
    She indicated she was going to copy it and distribute it all around the office and to the branch offices.
    I have to renociate my licensing agreement and don't want to have protect my property and not have her turn into a Napster.
    I played around with when first installed it would erase a code but allow it to work and when copied to a disk it would not have the code but I not sure if that is possible.
    Well just wondering if anyone has faced this?
    Best,
    Frank

    If you create a setup for the installation, either using the packaging wizard in Office Developer or using a third party installer, the installation sets up registry keys on the machine where it's installed. If you implemented appropriate security on the database and have code to check for a registry key and a value, then copying the database to another machine won't work because the registry key will be missing and the app won't run even if the workgroup MDW file is copied as well.
