No, you don't.

1)to make invisible the key in windows registry


This isn't possible since the user wouldn't be able to run the applicaiton because he/she wouldn't be able to read the key.

2)store the key in differnt formats


The different "format" would have to be an encrypted version of the key.

But, since you're putting this key in the regsitry, what's to stop the user from just exporting the data from the registry and importing it into another machine and running your app?? Nothing!! Since your key probably isn't generated from any machine specific data, your code will never know that it's an illegal copy.


Basically, any system you come up with yourself is going to be easily defeatable. Use a third party package instead. It's still no guarantee that your code won't be copied illegally, since any protection scheme can be cracked. Click here...[^]
