Registry Keys 

There is a location in the registry where values will get created for things like Echoing, EMS Profiler settings, Automated Login, Folder Import settings, etc. These will be located under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NetVoyage. Beneath this key, you can have two subkeys, one called "Keys" and another called "NetDocuments".  The "Keys" key will contain OAuth tokens for apps that use our REST API (EMS, Folder Import, etc.). The "NetDocuments" key can have a subkey called "profDef" for the user's Profile Defaulting settings if this option is enabled in your cabinet.  

The "NetDocuments" key will also contain a number of values that control various settings. See the Registry Key Table including registry keys and command line switches.

Note: Please be extremely cautious when making any sort of modifications to your registry. Before making any changes, back up those portions of the registry first.
