Hopewiser adopted a third party (CopyControl) copy-protection mechanism some time ago with a view to ensuring clients are compliant in terms of software licensing. This has also served to honour our commitment as a third party datafile reseller ensuring that the licensing on this front is adequate and appropriate too.
The third party CopyControl software shipped with many of our PC products has, in the recent past and in a limited way, proven to be problematic for some installations using the most recent Windows operating systems variants. Because of this, we have moved to develop our own copy-protection mechanism which will replace the third party solution completely. This has already been utilised largely within those customers’ sites that have encountered problems with the CopyControl software via a fall-back mechanism, with guidance from the support team at Hopewiser, and this has proven to work well.
