Path

  • Value.

The Path property has precedence if Path and Name, Company, and Value are all set.

[License]
Path=<path>

Values

<path>

The full path to the file containing the license information. Or the registry key to where the license entries are found. See examples below.

You can use environment variables when you set the path. But remember that environment variables can be different for users and systems and can have unwanted effects on the configuration. Thus, SecMaker does not recommend using environment variables to set configuration values.
