Automatic Activation

When you rollout Liquid XML, you can create a string value called LicenseGUID containing your license key in the registry under:


When Liquid XML is run on the PC it should then automatically Activate the license against our server.

Note: The following file is created as part of the Automatic Activation process:

If you run this process a second time, you must ensure you first delete this file otherwise the LicenseGUID will be ignored.

Proxy Settings

From v12.2.1 onwards, you can also add Proxy settings to the registry as follows:

Note: If the following registry values exist then they take precedence over the settings in the user config.

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Liquid Technologies\ProxyType
    Value : (STRING) Setting this value overrides the users proxy configuration options, preventing them from changing proxy settings
            NoProxy : no proxy, connections are made directly to hose servers
            DefaultProxy : the proxy settings used by internet explorer are used
            UserDefinedProxy : manual configuration of the proxy server is read from the keys ProxyUrl, ProxyPort, ProxyUsername, ProxyPassword

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Liquid Technologies\ProxyUrl
    Value : (STRING) url of the proxy server

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Liquid Technologies\ProxyPort
    Value : (DWORD) the port on the proxy server to use (i.e. 8080)

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Liquid Technologies\ProxyUsername
    Value : the username to authenticate to the proxy server with, can be left blank (stored in the clear)

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Liquid Technologies\ProxyPassword
    Value : the password to authenticate to the proxy server with, can be left blank

  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Liquid Technologies\IgnoreInvalidSslCerts
    Value : (DWORD)
            0 : Invalid SSL certs will raise errors and prevent data being read (default, secure)
            1 : Invalid SSL certs will be ignore and data can be read from sites with invalid certs (insecure but useful in a test environment)
