Hey guys, I have created a program which is generating an encrypted license file *.lic, now I am working on a
which will be implemented in software to check,read(decrypt, encrypt) and display data in lic file. Right now I am using
class to validate license, and I need help on reading, displaying data from file. Any advices? So far I got only this

    public class LicensedClass : IDisposable
        private License license = null;
        public LicensedClass( TextBox tex,TextBox tex2)

            license = LicenseManager.Validate(typeof(Form1), this);
            tex.Text=("License is Valid");
        public void Dispose()
            if (license != null)
                license = null;
this is WindowsFormApplication, but I am planning to use this code in my dll. Any help is welcome.

My advice is that you must use hashed data in your .lic. Because if you can decrypt the encrypted data anyone can decrypt it. So, you have a security issue there.

Remember that in silverlight isn't recommendable to read file from client PC. May be this class help you in server & client scenario for Silverlight: AesManaged

Hope it helps in any way.

Lic file is not in clients computer, it is on server in main's application ClientBin folder. I am using AesManaged in license generating application to encrypt and decrypt data in lic file. So how should I proceed in reading and displaying data?
