How to enable simulation mode
In order to use Signature SDK, you need to have a physical signature capture device connected to the PC.
In case you don't have a physical device, you can enable simulation mode to use while developing your application. To do this, you need to:
Create the following registry key in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Florentis\sd for 32-bit Signature SDK on 64-bit Windows and in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Florentis\sd for 32-bit Signature SDK on 32-bit Windows or 64-bit Signature SDK on 64-bit Windows.:
Value Type Description EnableSimulation DWORD Enable/disable simulation of signature capture when a digitizer is not installed.
For example, to run a signature capture demonstration with no digitizer installed, simply ensure
this key has been defined as non zero in the registry:
0 (or not present) = disable
non-zero = enable
