You no longer have to settle for the Windows Installer form to accept the user's product key! Add this to your project and easily validate the user's product key the first time your application starts (similar to the way programs like Microsoft Office works). All you have to do is enter your product key template and it does the rest! Or, for added security, modify the validation algorithm to accept different types of product key templates.
Contains the VB.net 2008 source code for the form. To add it to your existing project, right click on the 'My Project' node in the Solution Explorer, then 'Add','Add Existing' and browse for the downloaded source code.
By using this form instead of using the built in function in the Windows Installer, the user will not be prompted if he/she enters a number in a spot that must be a letter. The only way to know if you entered the key in correctly is if you enter the entire key in.
