1. Open the Registry Editor
- Press the Windows key on the keyboard, enter "reg" and then click on the "Registry Editor" app
2. Set location
The necessary entries can be made at the following 4 locations. The locations are sorted by priority. The first place where an entry is found is used by the axes4 application:
- HKEY LocalMachine\Software\Policies\axes4\Licensing (admin rights necessary)
- HKEY CurrentUser\Software\Policies\axes4\Licensing (admin rights necessary)
- HKEY LocalMachine\Software\axes4\Licensing (admin rights necessary)
- HKEY CurrentUser\Software\axes4\Licensing (user could do this himself)
What is the difference between LocalMachine and CurrentUser?
- "LocalMachine" means: for the local machine
- "CurrentUser" means: for the currently logged-in user
When does it make sense to add the entries to the key "Policies"
(see location 1 or 2 above)?
- If you want to centrally manage policies
- If you want to prevent the entries from being changed by the users
3. Making entries
As a rule, all required keys must be created before the entries can be added. The 3 required keys are:
Example: Create key axes4 as a sub-item to policies:
- Use the right mouse button on the "Policies" key to access the context menu.
- In the menu item "New" select the submenu item "Key":
- Assign the name "ActiveConnections" for the new entry
Example: Create the entry for the ActiveConnections
- Use the right mouse button over the "Manager" key to access the context menu.
- In the "New" menu item, select the submenu item "String Value":
- Assign the name "ActiveConnections" for the new entry.
- Using the right mouse button open the entry "Modify ...".
- Enter the Value data "agent" here:
- Check if the entry is correct:
