hi

iam trying to make an mst with a provided registration data, and iam having a hard time doing it.
as i read ver17 can be registered with uedit32.exe /lic,e="<LicenseID>|<Password>" command
however after calls the application this gives an incorrect path error.

anyone has any idea on this?
thanks

This will only work if you using the enterprise version installer. The command line I used successfully is ue_english.exe /s /f1"C:\Temp\ue_setup.iss" /v"LICENSEFILE=\"C:\Temp\ue.spl\"

uedit32.exe /lic,e="<LicenseID>|<Password>"

It could be that windows cannot find the uedit32.exe when you try to execute it. Does the command work when you manually run it in a cmd shell?
During your install, are you executing this command in a shell that has the current directory set to the path that contains uedit32.exe? or is the path part of the PATH environment variable?
If not, make sure when you execute the exe, that the shell's path is correctly set. You can use oShell.CurrentDirectory in VBS or pushd %~dp0 in a batch file.

i need to use MST, there's any way to make the registration work with that? unfortunately the internet registration process didnt capture anything locally (file/reg changes). i know its internet registration however if i disable internet the program will act as registered after without inet connection so it must change something locally, its weird i cant see any changes.. sigh the old .reg method could be easier a lot.

it is not related to this. iam trying this manually from the installdir and the uedit32.exe starts the application and the path message happens inside the application itself.

Are you SURE uedit.exe supports this /lic or /license (not sure which you're using) command line parameter?
I ask for 2 reasons. First, Rob's command line suggestion seems to involve the installer, and not the application itself. Secondly, the error you describe sounds to me like uedit.exe trying to open a file /lic,e="<LicenseID>|<Password>", and not finding it, which makes sense...

Besides this, I have no other suggestions I fear.

ye rob's told me its an installer only parameter, i've tried to run it after i've installed the product so its probably not usable for me.
found it there tho: http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=2186
so i need to find some other way for preregistriation because i need to use the msi+mst combo not the installer.

I too tried an MST on the publicly available installer and couldn't get it to silently install. Silent deployment of UltraEdit on an enterprise level (both installation and activation) requires a special enterprise/corporate deployment installer. You need to contact IDM support for a download link.

It's a binary license file generated by IDM support.

The following is a quote to me from IDM about the license file:
To include the license activation as part of the installation, please use the attached license file, which is unique and specially created for your company. Please protect this license file! Rename the attached license file to "ue.spl". If you copy the license file to the same location as the installer, it will automatically be copied to the appropriate location on the user's system. Please note that this license file must be left in a writable state for this build to function properly.

Did you have any luck using the MSI/MST option and the registration.
I have this app right now, and would like to do MSI/MST, but don't have to.

Within the MST, go to the MSI Script and add the following line.  I currently have this run during installation only.

  • Execute Installed Program uedit32.exe Command Line /lic,e="<LicenseID>|<Password>"

You can also use a WiseScript to have the program launch with the Window Minimized as well.
