Question Looking for a new idea, how to protect my software, so no one of you can crack it for

Dear Members

I am new here and I am not an expert in your field, hence I need your advice or good solution. I think, your Forum is the best place to ask for the help.
Looking for a new idea, how to protect my software, so no one of you can crack it for while.
I just developed software application (exe & dll) that I like to protect against copying it.
I have the entire application on CD, but I can use another source to store it and distribute.
For the past few years I used SafeDisc (reasonable price) to protect my intellectual rights.
Now I developed expensive (for me) software and I like to protect it better than just a SafeDisc.
So, I thought to use Hasp, Sentinel or Tasp. Reading your friendly forum I almost gave-up this idea and I am afraid to spend my money for these expensive dongle/key/ltp that many people can crack it easily.

Please offer me the solution, that most of you would get a headache trying to crack it.
Otherwise, please advise me which of these listed above technologies would be the best and unpopular to crack for you.

Thanks

I think VMProtect is very good and also doesnt cost much money
For now is also good choice sentinel hardware key.
Does anybody see any solution? Not any limited custom, i think full or table emu I don need it, i am just curious. Safenet still boast about their new protection isnt still cracked

The only (and I mean *only*) protection system that I have never seen fully cracked and makes most crackers give up as soon as they see it is VMProtect.

Question for Souze-Willy

I tried to find the Winlisence, but there are so many pages in Italien or Russian and I couldn't find the right one in English.
The only one I found is acctually the crack for the Winlisence.
http://www.sharingaccess.com/?hop=dd...d&q=Winlisence

Can you explain me please, what did you mean saying that the Winlisence is probably the best?
What do you think about Russian http://www.vmprotect.ru?
Is it good?
Thx

Question Thanks all of you

The both companies you were recommended as the best ones do not offer hardware protection in form of USB key. The hardware protection is more expensive than software one. So, in your opinion it is not worth to go and buy hardware, because you have many ways to go around the key?
For example Aladin sells the Hasp with the key that has internal memory. I can use it to keep there some valuable information necessary to run the program/application.
Even though you crack the CD and find the way to eliminate the Hasp protection, but how you will extract or use the part of the program that is in the USB key’s memory and is necessary to run the application?

Unhappy www.vmprotect.ru cannot protect my software

This is the reply I just got from www.vmprotect.ru

Our product can not protect your software against copying.

> Hi, I have a software on CD; I like to protect it against copying> it.> And at the same time I like to be able to duplicate it.> I used SafeDisc in the past and now I am thinking about the hardware> technology to use it for protection.> Can you tell me if your product would protect my intelectual rights> the way I need it?
