:: Passcape Winn CD Keys v2 has some new features and improvements. Now it is compatible with Windows Vista and LongHorn product keys (however it seems that activated Vista won't store it's product key in the registry any more), has new functionality to retrieve custom keys. PWCDKEY contains built-in definitions for more than 390 software products. You can use this sample to create your own key definition templates. Just edit it and save as licenses.ini into the program's installation directory.
