1.The TN3270 Plus distribution file. This is the file you used to install TN3270 Plus. (e.g. TN3270PlusSetup.exe or tn3270vm.exe where vm is the product version level.)
2.The TN3270 Plus license code information. The TN3270 Plus licenses code is kept in the TN3270.ini file. This file can be found in the TN3270 Plus configuration files folder (Setup, Preferences, Configuration File Folder edit box.) This is the default location. The default location can be overridden by either of the following registry entries:
  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SDI\TN3270 Plus\Configuration\LicenseCodePath\
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\SDI\TN3270 Plus\Configuration\LicenseCodePath\  (64-bit Windows)
  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SDI\TN3270 Plus\Configuration\LicenseCodePath\  (32-bit Windows)
3.(Optional) The TN3270 Plus configuration files. The configuration files are kept in the TN3270 Plus configuration files folder. (Setup, Preferences, Configuration File Folder edit box.) If you do not backup these files, it will be necessary to recreate your configuration settings after TN3270 Plus is installed.
