Summary0003367: License keys stored as plain text in registry
DescriptionThe product stores license keys as plain text in the registry. Since keys are now considered secret material, they should be encrypted (or, if possible, not stored at all).

Versions 6.5 and previous stored license keys in this same location but they were obfuscated -- hard to call it "encrypted", but they were translated and not stored as plain tex.tex

In 6.6 builds, license keys are stored as plain text and not at all obfuscated or encrypted.
Steps To Reproduce1) Setup the product, use a valid license keys
2) Examine this key in the registry: "Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Amateur Radio\HRD User Profile\Keys"
3) The key will have a value for each registered license key on the macihne. The name of that value is the key; the value stored is the callsign registered to that key.
