Excel Software "Licensing"

By mjromano ·
Hey guys, about a year ago my company created an estimating program in excel. They have began consulting other firms and would like give this software to them as part of their acceptance package.

My question is, my boss recently asked me if it would be possible to "license" the software so that after a year or so the program would cut off and require a new password for entry. If our client were to re-up their contract, we would provide them with the new password.

Is this feasible to do in Excel? The program is primarily in VBcode, so I'm wondering if something could be added to create this. Any help is appreciated

I've seen it done

At a former employer, we used a LMS that bolted on components into Word and Excel.

They pointed to a Config file, and the license key modified the config file. If the license key was out of date, the config file wouldn't allow the bolt-ons to work.

So, it is possible. Unfortunately, that isn't may area of expertise, so I can't help on the HOW to do it.

Best of luck!
