Too lazy to find a solution yourself? :)

It's not the first time you post this question. And you're not going to get any useful answers until you describe your problem in an understandable way.

What exactly is the problem?
How are you deploying the application?
If I understand you correctly, you want to validate it during deployment, so what program/technique are you using to deploy your application?

I will probably be easier to validate the license key from your program the first time it starts up than to modify the installer to do it for you. Is that a possibility?
