Hi there,

I am looking into various products to create installers. From what I've seen I can't use WIX to make use of product keys thus I am looking at InstallSheild.

My question however, how can I force a user to enter a product key when compiling the installer using InstallShield, if possible at all?

Thanks,

MS

InstallShield 2009 Express includes sample code for a custom action you can use in your projects. It also lets you add a Serial Number field to the Customer Information dialog of your installation. For more information, see the following help topic (as well as the See Also links at the bottom of that page):
