How to set up centralized registration for network installs.
When a network install is done where version updates are automatically updated on end-user machines, the registration key can be set-up for auto updating as well.
Some jurisdictions opt to have Intersection Magic installed where end-users’ versions are updated automatically when the server is updated. When an upgrade is done at a later time, the key changes and end-users are required to change the key on their local machine. To allow for an updated key change to end-users, a certain file must be created, “reginfo.ini”.
Automating key updates to end-users:
Program=C:MAGICIMW.EXE This should be the location on the server for IMW.EXE
RegisteredTo=Your jurisdiction name
InstallDate=05/22/2003 Enter the date installed
LastConfig=C:MAGICDATA This should be the location of the configuration files
Key=Your key for the version installed
Module-MapMagic=Your key for the version installed; if applicable
