EverKey Renew Program Minor Upgrade

RICHMOND, Missouri - February 3, 2015

Backward Compatibility for Success Messages and Cleanup for Error Messages

Renew Gets Minor Upgrade

Renew Success Messages Old and New

EverKey Release Version 6.7.3 adds some additional backward-compatibility and a little polish to the Version 6 Renew program. 

Support was added for a new /T Command-Line option.  This option specifies a Terse mode for messages so that the "Number of Days Added" or "Number of Runs Added" is not displayed once the Renew operation completes successfully.  This is similar to the information displayed in the Version 2 Renew32 program.  For Developers that don't wish to use a Command-Line option, the Terse mode will automatically be used if the Renew program is renamed to Reset.exe.

Also, the Error Summary Messages used in the Title Line was shortened so they were not truncated when certain Windows themes and fonts were being used.  The full text explanation of the Error in the Message Box was not changed.

This Release supports all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP-SP2 thru Windows 8.1, including Pro and Enterprise Editions.  Windows RT (ARM Tablet) is not supported.

New EverKey Knowledgebase

New EverKey Knowledgebase

All the latest EverKey documentation has now been added to an online knowledgebase available from the Az-Tech.com website.  This includes Frequently Asked Questions, Helpful Tips and the complete User Guide.

If you can't find the information you need from the knowledgebase, you can now create a Support Ticket to address any question or problem.  The Tickets are tracked and managed by our Support Staff, which is a big improvement over the previous system that used Email Forms. 

At the Launch of the knowledgebase system, there are already a number of new Explanations and Tips and we will continue to add more information in the coming weeks.  Also, in 2015, the system will be "re-skinned" to match the look and feel of the Az-Tech.com website.

EverKey Goes Pink!

Now Choose From Seven Colors And Help Promote Breast Cancer Awareness

EverKey Goes Pink!

EverKey Goes Pink!

Az-Tech is introducing a new Pink EverKey Rockey4ND in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The case is translucent and you can clearly see the internal circuitry surrounded by a Pink halo.  Inside the case is the same great solid electronics of the proven driverless Rockey4ND. 

For each Pink Rockey4ND purchased, Az-Tech will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  During Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), the donation will be doubled to $2 per Pink Rockey4ND sold.  The mission of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research.  So far, they have funded almost 9 million hours of research to not only find a cure for breast cancer, but improve the quality of care for those already affected.  You can find out more information about this excellent organization here.

Pink Ribbon

The new Rockey4ND is available immediately as a stocked item, bringing the total number of translucent colors to seven; Green, Blue, Gray, Purple, Brown, Red and now Pink!  As always, each one comes with a free matching Dust Cap and there is no charge for mixing colors in the same order.

EverKey Gets Expiring Renew Codes (Again!)

RICHMOND, Missouri - September 28, 2014

KeyBuild Version 6 Can Now Build Renew Codes That Expire In 7 Days

KeyBuild Gets Expiring Renew Codes

KeyBuild Gets Expiring Renew Codes

The latest EverKey update to the KeyBuild program restores the option to build Renew Codes that expire in 7 days.  The default is to build Renew Codes that do not expire, but this can be changed from the Preferences panel.  As always, each Renew Code can only be used once before it expires. 

Expiring Renew Codes were actually built by default in EverKey Version 1.0, released in 1990.  However, in those days, a Renew Code was typically sent by fax or post and the resulting delay often caused it to expire before it could be used.  So, Az-Tech removed Expiring Renew Codes in EverKey Version 2.  Now, this feature is being re-introduced, due to recent Customer demand. 

In order to start using Expiring Renew Codes, you must update your KeyBuild and Renew programs to Version 6.7.1 or later.  We have kept all non-Expiring Renew Codes backward compatible, so you will only need to email the new Renew program to EXISTING Customers who will use Expiring Renew Codes.  Of course, for NEW Customers, we always recommend you provide the latest version of the Renew program. 

This Release supports all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP-SP2 thru Windows 8.1, including Pro and Enterprise Editions.  Windows RT (ARM Tablet) is not supported.

EverKey Included In Latest Roundup of Top License Managers

SD Times Magazine

SD Times Magazine

In August, Lisa Morgan at SD Times online magazine wrote an article about the top License Managers.  It examined how they have evolved to handle the current business models that software developers are using to market their software.

EverKey was recognized for its ease-of-use, comprehensive marketing features and ability to reduce piracy risks.

From the SD Times article:

"EverKey allows fine-grain control of where and how software products are used.  It provides the flexibility to market software as a standalone package, trial evaluation, or bundled with other products.  Using EverKey, it is easy to control execution limits, time limits and feature limits.  The product reduces software piracy risks, helps end customers comply with license agreements, and enables more effective marketing of software products."

Az-Tech Reduces EverKey Rockey4ND Prices

RICHMOND, Missouri - July 1, 2014

EverKey Rockey4ND Key


Az-Tech announced today that it has reduced the prices of EverKey Rockey4ND Keys.  Prices for all purchase quantities have been reduced, from 5 to 17 percent.  The new prices are effective immediately. 

The newer Rockey4ND Keys are considered a replacement for the Rockey4 Keys, whose prices were not changed.  The newer Rockey4ND Keys are 3-4 times faster, have more memory and do not require Device Drivers to be installed.  To make the upgrade to the new Key as painless as possible, all EverKey Version 6 programs support both types of Keys interchangably.

EverKey KeyBuild Renew Codes Panel Released

RICHMOND, Missouri - June 20, 2014

Build Renew Codes Directly From the KeyBuild Program

KeyBuild Renew Codes Panel

The New KeyBuild Renew Codes Panel

Az-Tech has released an update to the KeyBuild program which adds the ability to build Renew Codes.  Previously, this was done with the separate Kecodes program, which is no longer needed.  Renew Codes allow you to remotely update the protection options in Keys that have already been installed by your Customer. 

You can begin using this new feature immediately by just clicking on the Renew Codes panel tab, which is right next to the Build Keys panel tab.  For backward compatibility, this version of KeyBuild builds all types of Renew Codes used by EverKey Version 2, including Codes used to update the User-Data Flags.  Of course, you can now build Renew Codes to update the new Feature-Flags, which support the expanded Marketing features of EverKey Version 6.  Feature-Flags can be individually or collectively turned On, Off or Set with a single Renew Code. 

You can build up to 100 codes at a time and with Logging turned on (this is the default), you will always have a complete record of all Renew Codes built.  For total automation of your Production, the Renew Codes can be built using Batch Mode, which allows a Parent Program or Batch File to completely control the KeyBuild process. 

This Release supports all 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP-SP2 thru Windows 8.1, including Pro and Enterprise Editions.  Windows RT (ARM Tablet) is not supported.

Conflict Minerals Disclosure Now Required

RICHMOND, Missouri - January 1, 2014

Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act Requires Filing By May 31, 2014

Free of Conflict Minerals

Effective May 31, 2014, all publicly traded companies must disclose the use of "Conflict Minerals" in their products.  Under Section 1502 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, these "Conflict Minerals" include tantalum, tin, gold or tungsten (also known as "3TG").  The European Union has similar legislation pending. 

These 3TG metals have been labeled "Conflict Minerals" because they are mined and sold from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and adjoining countries, where some of the trading of these metals is controled by armed groups who use extreme levels of violence and have little respect for human rights. 

Even though Az-Tech is not a publicly traded company, we are committed to legal compliance, including the due diligence and disclosure requirements to ensure that all our products and components are DRC Conflict Free. 

Az-Tech will not knowingly use any products with 3TG metals from sources that fund conflict and we will continue to work diligently to obtain disclosures from our vendors confirming that they do likewise. 

For more information, please refer to our Compliance page of Az-Tech.com.

EverKey KeyBuild Version 6 Released

Support for Rockey4NDs, Multiple Build, Feature-Flags and More

EverKey KeyBuild Version 6

EverKey KeyBuild Version 6

Az-Tech has Released the first major upgrade to the KeyBuild program since Version 2.  This version adds new functionality and enhances the existing features of the last release.  Best of all, backward compatibility is maintained for existing Customers. 

KeyBuild now supports the newer Rockey4ND Keys, which are Faster and have More Memory.  They also eliminate the number-one Support issue of requiring Device Drivers to be installed at the Customer site.  KeyBuild still supports Rockey4 Keys which are backward compatible with ALL Version 2 programs. 

EverKey Driverless Key

One of the most requested features was to be able to program more than one Key at a time.  The new KeyBuild allows you to program up to 10 Keys at a time, giving each one a different Serial Number.  For high-volume, production environments, we have expanded Batch Mode support to include every option used by the GUI version of KeyBuild.  The enhanced Logging functionality records all program activity in an easy to read text format, so you will always have a record of exactly what was done and when it was done. 

KeyBuild v6 is available now from the Downloads page of Az-Tech.com.  It works with your existing Options files and Rockey4 Keys, but we recommend you try the faster, driverless Rockey4NDs.  They are available from Az-Tech's online store at Store.Az-Tech.com.  All Store orders include Free 2-Day Air Shipping anywhere in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii.
