On Windows Vista, the location is HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FLEXlm License Manager. In other Windows systems HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE is used.

As far as I can see this gives us a problem.

In our case an administrator initially sets up the license server address (in registry). Then different (new) users logs on to the PC and runs the licensed application. In this case the license server address is not found since it's located in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER (for the administrator).

Is there a better way to solve this issue in Vista (not using environment variables for the VENDOR_LICENSE_FILE)?
