1.5.2 Protection of the delivered image on UNIX

[ UNIX only] In general, the delivered application is also protected by the keyfile and network licensing mechanism. Unless action is taken to retarget the image, the end-users of your application will require a LispWorks Delivery key (but no other key).

Retargeting the image means: substituting the image's requirement for a Delivery key with the requirement for a run-time key. This substitution is controlled by the product code which LispWorks Support at Xanalys will supply to your organization. (See Reporting bugs in the LispWorks Release Installation Notes for information on contacting LispWorks Support.) You should use the same code for retargetting all of your products. You may wish to make your own security arrangements in additions to those required by Xanalys.

Unless you have made arrangements to the contrary, run-time licenses will be generated by the LispWorks Support desk. Run-time licenses will be issued only to you (the application developer) and not to the end-user. We will need to know the machine identifier of the host target machine in the usual way. Note that undated run-time keys are only transferrable from one machine to another upon payment of an administration charge.

All keys are specific to the major version of LispWorks for which they are issued. The current release is Release 4. If you re-issue your application to your end-users and base it on a different release of LispWorks, then all existing keys will need replacement. This re-issue of keys for existing platforms will not attract the above administration fee.

While you are working on the delivery of your application there is no need to retarget it as you can run trial versions with your Delivery keys.
