Registry Keys

We do not currently have a way to pass the license key during the silent install, however, you can add this yourself by updating the following registry key: 

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Windward Studios\Auto Tag!License

 

Or if running 32-bit Windows or Office 64-bit:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Windward Studios\Auto Tag!License
