plugin, virtual vault, protect, features

1. I took a look at the comparison product table, what does it mean that: "You can distribute the CD-ROM(s) royalty free" and for EBW PRO it says "partially available or limited". What CD-ROM?
 
2. I can read that there are several plug-ins to EBW PRO available, but are they free?
 
3. Is there any additional price to be paid if I decide to use Virtual Vault? How much will it add to EBW PRO, for both options, download and CD? What link should I follow in your web page?
 
4. I also develop database software, do you know if I buy Virtual Vault through you with EBW PRO, will it work for other products like my database software apart of my resulting ebook?
 
5. What is your experience on customers sharing passwords for an ebook? Is there a possibility to avoid this using EBW PRO only, without Virtual Vault?
 
6. I didn't see what specific difference does Virtual Vault do concerning security against EBW PRO?

1. = EBW's ebook are royalty free (YES!)
 
within the table ( www.visualvision.com/checklist/ ) there are different VisualVision products.
We have CDFrontEnd www.cdfrontend.com that's similar to EBooksWriter. In short, CDFrontEnd is specific for CD-ROMs, EBooksWriter is for creating compact exe files. CDFrontEnd features some additional functions such as the database CSV import (for creating CD catalogues).
For the rest they are pretty identical. Some people gets the bundle CDFE + EBW.
 
 
2. = plug in
 
Some are free, some are not free. You may need them or not. A popular one is 3D buttons (not free). Another popular one is the "Text to image" (free). Please see:
http://www.visualvision.com/plugin/
 
 
3. Virtual Vault
 
We suggest to not use Virtual Vault if you are willing to distribute  
CDs. The end user authentication requires Internet connection (security has its disadvantages), and this would annoy customers (when you purchase a CD usually you'd like to see it also when offline).
VirtualVault has a monthly fee around $29: when you purchase EbooksWriter (either PRO or GOLD) you are entitled to a special discount for EBW customers (around 30%), just email us for the special link (orders@visualvision.com).
You can get Virtual Vault later - just keep your EBW purchase receipt in a safe place.
 
 
4.  virtual vault and other protections
 
Virtual Vault is ok to protect "exe" product. In order to be really secure, the exe product must have a certain degree of internal protection (otherwise it may be copied or partially copied when the end user uses it). EBooksWriter is ok for this, as per your thing, don't know.
 
 
5. security
 
Usually the EBW PRO keeps honest customer honest. If you share a password, your friend will have your name on the ebook and usually people dont' like this.
Honestly it is your choice. Maybe you should go with Virtual Vault if the ebook price will be over a certain amount, or if you feel there is a high piracy risk (the ebook subject may matter, also).
You may talk with other users within the specific (long!) topic:
http://www.paperinik.com/cgi-bin/eng/YaBB.pl?board=EBW;action=display;nu m=1066754681
 
 
6. virtual vault compared to internal security
 
When the ebook is protected also with Virtual Vault, when the end user opens the ebook it connects to the Virtual Vault secure server, then asks to the end user a password, that is locked to the end user PC (this password will work only for this PC).
 
When it is protected with EBooksWriter, the ebook either asks a password identical for all users, or a specific password for the specific user (this password will work only with the user full name and email)

new virtual vault, virtualvault: fix

The new edition of the Virtual Vault plug-in does toggle an issue for the re-open of the ebook.
 
It means that when your customer downloads your ebook (with added VV protection) and runs it, he/she enters his/her email and if you enabled/activated him/her, everything is OK. But at the next validation the ebook may show a dialog "overwrite?" that hangs the VirtualVault protector (the vv/ebook stalls and it is not opened).
 
The ZIP archive in
www.visualvision.com/download/SfxEbkE.zip
contains the file
SfxEbkE.exe
this replaces the existing SfxEbkE.exe that in the default install is in:
c:\vv\CDROMs\IPER3PRO\Eng\CLIENT\F\EbookUtils
 
(you may use the MSWindows Start >Find to search for  SfxEbkE.exe - you have it somewhere)
 
Just replace the file, and remake the exe ebook. Then repack with VirtualVault.
Then it will work.
 
Of course, in "Hypertext >Current hypertext properties" you have to uncheck "show license" and you have to check "no install / VirtualVault", this is always needed to have everything ok and running with the VV lock-to-pc.
 
Thank you for your patience
Unfortunately VirtualVault guys are very busy and forgot to notify us about this issue...

I have virtual vault and tested as an end user.  It hangs up, creates "Product Locked" messages...merchant has to issue master key, etc.  This is really annoying for the end user.  Created doc in Acrobat 8, and protected it w/passwords only to discover the end user can do a "Save As" and copy it to CD.  I don't know what to do.  Help.

Hi! PDF documents can not be protected in a secure way. You need to buy EbooksWriter and to write your document(s) in EBooksWriter, that uses a different secure internal format. Then you can use the internal EBW protections, or, if you are paranoic about protection, you can also add VirtualVault. All our users that added VirtualVault are fine and they don't have problems protecting EBooksWriter's ebooks.
