Using PELock copy protection?

Im thinking about buing PELock executable protector (, i didn't find any information about weaknesses in its licensing system, neither any "unpackers" (unlike ASProtect or Armadillo), but are there any PELock's users over here, i would like to hear more from real people than google :)

I'm using PELock for like 3 years, no cracks, no keygens, no patches for my software anymore!

Excellent support from Bartosz (author), i had some problems with my executable and he build a custom version of PELock in  one day after i reported the problem (all for free).

I wouldn't recommend any other software (because i tried a few of them before, including Armadillo and my software was cracked every time I've released a new version).

After a lot of research I recently bought PELock.

So far as I can tell just about everything has been cracked if you know where to look. The evaluation version of PELock has been cracked, but its out of date and and you get a newer version when you buy it. I couldn't find anything about cracking that one.

All the other software I looked at was basically (1) expensive and cracked, (2) cheap and cracked, (3) fancy websites with lots of marketing and cracked, (4) not popular enough to get cracked.

I exchanged a number of emails with the author he does provide good support.

While it's a bit lacking in the user interface, I don't think you'll find anything any more secure or much cheaper. I'm pretty happy with it.
