[Registry] Explained

IT Asset Management (Cloud)
The following definitions of computer preferences use the placeholder [Registry]. This text represents the location of all relevant registry entries in the registry:
  • On Windows servers, inventory beacons, and managed devices, agent registry entries on 32-bit operating systems are usually stored under the key:
    For 64-bit operating systems, the normal key is:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ManageSoft Corp\
    For these platforms, the [Registry] placeholder should be interpreted as the appropriate one of these keys.
    Tip: Equivalent keys in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER hive are now deprecated (meaning that their use is discouraged, that their ongoing functionality is not guaranteed, and that at an unspecified future time support for this hive may be entirely removed).
  • On non-Windows managed devices, registry entries are stored in the /var/opt/managesoft/etc/config.ini file. Within this file, registry keys are shown in square brackets. The lines below each key show the registry entries set under that key. For example, to set the type of inventory to be collected as a 'registry' preference on UNIX-like managed devices:
    In other words, on UNIX-like devices, the documentation placeholder [Registry]\ should be taken to mean "look in the /var/opt/managesoft/etc/config.ini file for the following key".

Absent keys

Not all registry keys cited in the following preferences exist by default. These are usually marked "Code internals, or manual configuration". If the registry key does not exist, or if it exists but has no value, the default value is provided by the FlexNet Inventory Agent (without modifying the registry). However, if you wish to override the default value for the preference, you should manually create the registry key shown, and populate it with your alternate value.
