|Note: It is recommended that you download
SKGL 188.8.131.52 and use it in your project instead of the one in Software Protector. The current package with Software Protector contains SKGL 184.108.40.206, which is an older version, although key validation and key generation is exactly the same as in the
newest SKGL API.

In some cases, you might want to lock a key for a specific machine, i.e. make it only work on a certain computer. This can be encomplished using the feature
machine locking. By using it, you will make it impossible for users who are not authorized to use a certain key, while only one computer can use and activate it.
