Last but not least:

Create registration key (*.reg) file for distribution

NOTE: The following is a summarized version of the procedure; an IT technician who creates the silent installations or registration key would normally know how to do this.

 

1. Open a text editor, for example Notepad.

2. Copy and paste the following information into the empty file:

 

If using HKEY_CURRENT_USER:

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\SDL\Studio15License]

"UseLicenseServer"="True"

"ServerName"="[dedicated server name]"

"CurrentLPID"="SafeNetRMS"

"CheckedOutEdition"="ProfessionalEdition"

"CheckedOutFeatures"="ProfessionalEdition,AllowTQA"

"UseBorrowedLicense"="False"

 

If using HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

 

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\SDL\Studio15License]

"UseLicenseServer"="True"

"ServerName"="[dedicated server name]"

"CurrentLPID"="SafeNetRMS"
"CheckedOutEdition"="ProfessionalEdition"

"CheckedOutFeatures"="ProfessionalEdition,AllowTQA"

"UseBorrowedLicense"="False"

 

NOTE: Replace [dedicated server name] with the name of the machine on which you installed the SDL License Server Manager.
