    How to know if my app is installed from Nokia Store or not?

    Hi friends,
    Please there is any way to verify if my Qt app is installed from Nokia Store or it's installed form elsewhere (pirated copy)?

    basically there is no ways on determining how the application was installed. Anyway, I would suppose you could try playing around with checking with TOpenFileScan which file your app is being installed from as illustrated in: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...eing_installed

    Anyway, you also should remember that also QA needs to be able to test it, and you should also not make mistakes on denying correct instalaltion from the Nokia store, so the idea is generally bad, and has limitations.

    Thank you for your response
    then I think it's better to use OMA DRM 2.0 or IAP, you know if these ways are efficient to protect my Qt apps to be redistributed illegally?

    IAP would be good, basically then you could benefit additional instalaltions, since you could get them to pay through the store.

    And the OMA DRM 2.0 is efficient for my existent paid apps without IAP?

    I actually do not have enough expertise or knowledge on out Store and OMA DRM 2.0 to be able to say anything on how well it works, thus can not really comment on it.

    I'll try it with one of my Qt app and see if it's efficient
