Checking what license (if any) a host has registered...

Hello,
Great product. Been using this for about 2 months now and it's great.

I am looking for a way (remotely if possible) to check if I registered a host.
a. What key did I use?

I am also wondering what the symptoms of not registering a host would be.

Do I have to register a viewer?

Lastly, what would happen if I registered the same host 2x?

Thanks,

You can check it in the License information column, if you switch your View mode from Thumbnails to Details. (Right-click anywhere in the connections region of the Viewer window -> Details). You should be loggen on that Host.

If you try to connect to unregistered Host, you'll see a window which will ask you to register that Host.

No. Viewer only stores keys in the License key storage.

Host will be re-registered. Last license key applied will be active.

Where does the Portable Viewer store its License Keys? Are they stored in %AppData% on the local computer where you run the viewer, in the local computer's registry, or in the PV's directory tree (e.g. on the USB stick from which you run the Portable Viewer)?

Angus,

It's in the config_4.xml in the portable Viewer folder, on the USB or whatever you run it from. However, we'll soon start putting the license information to license.txt file as it was before.
