Has anyone been able to successfully package this? I have been to do so but I have come across one issue -- even though the registration key is captured during the snapshot, it still asks to be "registered and unlocked" when pushed to a machine. Anyone have any ideas?

Update: I have done some testing and it seems that if the user who has the software installed does not have local admin rights, they will continue getting prompted to "register and unlock" the software. Once local admin rights are given to the user, the product is registered. It again becomes a trial version once you remove the local admin rights. I attempted to give all users full access to the Centurionsoft registry key as well as the installation folder, but did this not resolve the issue either.

Update: I contacted Centurionsoft (developers of CenturionSoft) and they have informed me that they are aware of this issue. They told me that they have informed others to ease up on their security to resolve this issue. I told them that this was unacceptable in my environment. It's been sent up to the developers/programmers to identify the registry key(s) needed as they are not located in the Centurionsoft key. I'll keep everyone interested posted on this.

Thanks for your reply, deploy.no

Well, this could be a number of things. Do you know if the serial is hardware-dependant or not? If it is, you might be in for a challenge.

Sometimes even enterprise licenses rely on hardware-dependent licensing. Most of the time this is done by combining the serial you enter with a hardware-generated hash of some kind. If this is what you captured it would then be invalid when moved to another computer.

If you investigate this further and it is indeed a non-enterprise-friendly-licensing-scheme that gives you trouble, ask the vendor about your scenario and explain what you are trying to do. It might help if they have anyone onboard that knows something about software deployment. Strange as it may seem, a lot of developers don't know much about deployment at all .. and some vendors refuse to help with large-scale deployment.
