License Key is visible for end users in version 15

If you click on File/License Key, then the current license key is shown for the actual user.

This is a real problem in an enterprise environment because the user should not have access to the license key as we are installing everything centrally.

Are there any suggestion how to hide this license key?

Thanks in advance

This should be soluble. I am not certain about MindManager 15, but in previous versions it could be fixed with the Admin installer and configuring certain registry keys. There was a document describing the registry key values to suppress the display of the license key. Unless anyone else on this forum knows whether this is current for MindManager 15, I suggest getting up to date info from Mindjet support.

Hi Gabor,

I think there is information on how to do this in the large scale deployment documentation which can be found in the Admin installer on the Mindjet downloads page:

Correction: you can find the LicenseKey button when you go to the "Help" tab (and not in File).

The ShowLicense regkey works: it will hide this option. However... in the registry - right next to this key - I can still see the key. As users are admins on their machine, still there is a risk that it can be seized. If this regkey is changed, trial mode will be triggered.

Is this by design that the serial key must be visible there? If we change the MSI property responsible for the serial key - will be written there too?

I have checked the Admin document but there was no clean how to about this...

Thanks,
Gabor

Hi Gabor, 

The license keys for MindManager are always stored in the registry and must reside there. If need additional assistance with deploying MindManager, please contact our Support Team

how do you resolved this??  I Installed this from a Script and using the MSI package.  the registry key is located in a different root:   HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Mindjet\MindManager\16\

I cannot find the ShowLicense   value.

Eduardo, have you tried to deploy the ShowLicense value using the Registry to your users?
