License Key Storage

KONNEKT searches for license keys in two registry keys:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\GlueckKanja\Konnekt\License (REG SZ)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlueckKanja\Konnekt\License (REG SZ)
If a license key is set at machine level (HKLM), it will supersede a license key at user level (HKCU).

License Key Configuration

There are several options how you can configure the license key:
Option

Use Case
Lic Key Storage Location
Interactive Setup

This option may be a good choice for a singular system.

This is the recommended approach for managed environments. See Set License Key for details.
HKLM or HKCU
MSI Parameter
Sets the license key as a MSI-parameter (e.g. with silent Setup).
This option may be a good choice for environments with a software deployment system.
HKLM
Preferences Menu
Enter the license key in the preferences menu.
This option may be used for single user systems, only.
HKCU
Entering the license key in the preferences menu:
The preference menu sets the license for the current user (HKCU), only. Other users logging into the same machine would also have to set the license.
If a license key is configured at HKLM, settings via preferences menu are not effective. (see Set License Key for details).
