  • On a Mac?
  • on a PC.
  • To be a bit more specific, I am making a volume installation for computerlabs
  • I might have found it: %APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2\Settings\License.sublime_license
    It is weird though for a license to be under a personal folder, and at the same time applies to other users...

/VERYSILENT /NORESTART for a silent install (Someone will need this).

For Windows - you will find the license file in the user's app-data directory (%APPDATA%\Sublime Text 2\Settings\License.sublime_license). Also note that depending on the version, there may be a registry flag or hex value in the EXE itself associated with the License/EULA as well.

For MacOS- licensing is held at /Applications/Sublime\ Text\ 2.app/Contents/MacOS/

For Linux it's here /usr/lib/sublime-text-2
Note for Linux users- If you’ve registered your copy of Sublime Text, but every time you open it you’re asked to enter your license, you should try running this command. Just replace username with your account’s username. This should fix the permission error in the case that you opened up Sublime Text as root when you first entered the license.

sudo chown -R username:username /home/username/.config /sublime-text-3

Worthy of note for anyone not following the rules:
Make sure to read the conditions for use on the official site. Sublime Text is not free.
