I'm trying to package the latest version of TextPad for post-install imaging, and I can't figure out where it stores the license information. I can silently install the software and successfully enter the license info and register it manually, but can't find any registry key that they used to use in previous versions from what it looks like. Any ideas on how to automate the registration for version 6?

Answer Summary:
I'm running 6.1.3 and it stores the license under a TextPadKey.xml file and is stored in c:\documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\Helios\TextPad for windows XP. So I would install it on one machine put in the licensing code then suck up the file.

  • Does anyone where the xml would be in Windows 7?
  • It's been a while since I've looked at this - but try checking in the AppData folder for the user (or public user).
