Application installer registry key entries for the configuration file
The ProwcappLocator registry keys are required if the installer sets up a shortcut for the application. Your installation program must create the following registry key and registry key values defining the server for the application configuration file under this key:
<Basekey>\Software\<VendorName>\<ApplicationName>\ProwcappLocator
Where <Basekey> is either the HKLM or the HKCU registry hive depending on the installation type, and <VendorName> and <ApplicationName> match the values you enter in the General tab of the WebClient Application Assembler when you define your application.
The following table lists the registry key values as they appear in the registry and provides a description of the information that appears under Data in the registry.
