SOLVED: Installation on multiple terminal servers

Post by Seeker45 » Wed Dec 18, 2013 2:36 pm

Hi,

we have bought the 100 Users Pack and have installed PDF-XChange Editor on our terminal servers. How do we distribute the license key to all users? Also, is there a certain directory/file that must be writeable for the individual users in order to save his/her preferences, e.g. language preference?

Thank you.

Ralf

Hello Ralf,

If you didn't distribute the license key at install time then probably the easiest way to distribute it for all users is on their next log in to populate:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings\Registration\t.Serial with the correct license key.

As for changing preferences - most of them are stored in the registry so the users will need to be able to modify registry values in:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Ralf,

what version of Windows Server are you running? I know for sure that in W2008 R2 you can change just the following key in HKLM and users should get it in their HKCU hive next log on.

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings\Registration
Key name Serial
Value - PXP50-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
I hope that helps.

Hello Stefan, hello Paul,

Thanks for the quick support. The "central" key

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Tracker Software\PDFXEditor\3.0\Settings\Registration
is much preferred.

I have tested it, and it works perfectly! Thanks.

Ralf

Hi Ralf,

I'm really pleased to hear that worked for you. Indeed pushing things to HKCU on a terminal Server is something I'd want to avoid myself... ;-)

Take care.
