Description:

Looking a the sm.registry file and the registry in Windows, I would like to know what is the InstallKey and the number following it as for example:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Netegrity\SiteMinder\CurrentVersion=16838
InstallKey= {RC2}Lzc9izL3MvD9qMuhdYHXoBwgFLnLVLT56szbrixWo0Y=; REG_SZ

Solution:

InstallKey

This Key is used by Installer to store the value of the evaluation license.
This value is checked by Policy Server to for Evaluation Period in License code.

The function of the number is related to the Evaluation Period in License code.

As this key is particular to the installation process, we recommend you not to copy the sm.registry file between to different OS. You need to merge the values from it.
