I've been wondering how to password-protect my Rev project for shareware distribution.  Maybe regcode-protect would be a better term, since I'm not talking about only locking the scripts.  I've posted questions several times on this topic and haven't seen any good solutions that cover all platforms.

As a fall-back position, I'd like to at least password-protect my stacks that I compile for Windows (alas, that is the bulk of my target audience).  I don't know anything about the Registry, but...  Can I write a username to the Registry and auto-generate a password based on that?  If so, what are the pros and cons?  What are the potential headaches with upgrades or users moving to a different machine or hard drive?  Can someone give an example (something like Ken Ray's tip win002)?
