Problem

The Product Registration dialog that appears after installing AspenTech software currently does not create a registration record within AspenTech. A new product registration process will be implemented in the future.
 
Workaround

We recommend disabling the registration dialog by following the instructions below:


Step 1: open the Registry Editor and update the following registry key:
Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AspenTech or
                      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AspenTech

Value Name: DoNotRegister
Value Type:  REG_SZ
Value Data:  1





Step 2: export the updated registry key
  • Right-click HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\AspenTech or
                      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\AspenTech
  • Select Export and Save As DoNotRegister.reg



Step 3: push the registry change to the client computers
  • Copy DoNotRegister.reg to the client computer.
  • With Administrator Privileges, double-click DoNotRegister.reg to import the settings. You should receive a message that the import was successful.
  • You may also use a deployment tool such as SCCM to deploy and import the registry file on multiple computers.

After updating these registries entries, users will not be prompted to register again.
