I'm using custom data to store extra license information but I don't want the user to insert custom data or show him these values. I want the custom data to be part of the SmartKey number, so, he cannot see it.
For Static SmartKeys the user needs to insert the Customer Name + Company + Custom Data + SmartKey serial (you can avoid passing the "Name" or "Company" or "Custom Data", just passing a NULL string). The HardwareID does not need to be entered by your customer as it's taking internally from the current machine. As you can see, the Custom Data must be explicitly entered by your customer or not included it, but it cannot go as part of the SmartKey serial.
If you use the new Dynamic SmartKeys, you can embed all user information (Name, Company, Custom Data) within the generated SmartKey. That is, the generated SmartKey will be much longer than the old Static SmartKeys but your customer just receives a single SmartKey (which contains all his information inside)
