Bugger! IT Help required

At work we've been using a product from a company called Appforge for the last few years to write software for handheld computers (Palm, Pocket PC, some phones, etc).

We've been finalising some bugs in the software and are ready to release it, so we needed to buy some licenses for our customers. We went to their web page and the online store didn't seem to be working, so we checked things out with their Australian reseller.

Appforge went out of business about 2 weeks ago. Fuck!

This means that all the work we've been doing on this product is wasted unless we can find a way to get around the client activation requirements. Argh! Does anyone know of any way to get around it? I assume that no one reading this has ever used Appforge so I think it's a wasted question, but it's worth a shot.

This is so frustrating.

The AppForge online store is coming up for me. But I don't have a login for it, so I can't check any further than that.

Do any of the resellers have any licences left? Not just the Australian one, but anywhere?

The problem is that it's not just the licenses. The issue is that when the Client for version 6 onwards is installed on a handheld, it needs to be activated, and to do that you need to get an activation key from Appforge, which is different for every license and machine.

At the moment it looks like we're going to have to go back a version, because the previous version didn't have this activation requirement, but then we loose out of all the improvements in version 6.

Try here. This may only be for the development environment, but it's worth a look...

They're torrent links that I'll try when I get home.

This may have been checked already but:
Is there anyway of getting in touch with the owners of the business or whoever is winding up the company?
If the company is out of business and the IP hasn't been sold on you may be able to get them to provide a general unlock if the software will no longer be supported. If the IP has been passed on they may be able to get you in touch with the new owners to get the licences.

I'm currently trying to chase that up. Thanks for the though.

Unfortunately they are an American company, so time differences are an issue.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
