How to Buy


It's quite easy to perform a purchase and install the license, but there are a few manual steps, explained below. The reason for this is that it's an absolute requirement that the software itself does not have the capability or need to connect to the Internet. For your security and peace of mind thus, we must ask you to manually get the license from the payment provider and then copy/paste or drag'n'drop the license to the software. Knowing that our software will never talk to anything over the Internet, we think you'll find this little extra step worth the effort!

This is why we can't have the software just get the license from the server by itself, like many other softwares do. It's a matter of security.

How to buy and install a Xecrets File Ez or Command Line license

Follow these simple instructions when doing purchasing your license. The actual license is a string of encoded data, a few hundred characters long and can be downloaded as a file or copy/pasted into the software.

Xecrets File Command Line

The process is the same as described above for Xecrets File Ez [Beta], except that instead of copy/pasting the license into the application, you download the license in the form of a text file, and then place that text file in the same directory as the Xecrets File Command Line [Beta] executable.
