FsLabs removes invasive product validation

Recommended Posts

This was just announced on the FsLabs forum post here today: (

Beginning with the forthcoming update to our A320-X product, we have decided that we are going to put our trust in you entirely.  While our product installer will still ask you for the serial number issued to you after purchase, we will be eliminating all additional validation that was previously occurring at product run-time.

Unfortunately, commercial piracy will always exist and it has a tremendous impact on all software companies' bottom lines, including our own. As a company, we are taking a real risk in making our software significantly more vulnerable to piracy. However, until such time as we find an up-to-date, alternative method that can be used in a modern 64-bit environment AND causes no validation problems for our legitimate customers, we have decided to go with this approach, allowing us to once again focus entirely on innovation and new simulation features.


I think this is good news. What do you guys think?
