Configuration Settings: Contributor Pro 6.x

Most configuration settings can be applied during installation using the MSI installer or after installation by adding a registry key or by modifying an existing one. Some configuration settings can only be applied using one of these methods.

Details on applying a configuration setting can be found in the article How to apply a Configuration Setting.

Registry keys are located either in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or in HKEY_CURRENT_USER, with a base location as follows:

32-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Colligo\Contributor\
64-bit: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Colligo\Contributor\
32 or 64 bit: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Colligo\Contributor\


  1. If the Registry Key is not present in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or HKEY_CURRENT_USER, one should be created in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.
  2. If the Registry Key is present in both locations, the value used is the one specified in the Configuration Setting article under Registry Root Key Priority.

Configuration settings available for Contributor Pro 6.x are listed in the tables below.
