Configuration Settings: Windows 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.
