Setting preferencess via the SDK

I am trying to see if there is a way to automate certain steps for new installations of Act using the SDK. A couple of notable things I'd like to do is activate Act using a serial number, and also set the current user's Outlook integration options.

 

From what I understand, I should be able to use the PreferencesManager.UserPreferences.SetValue() method, but I am not sure what it is expecting as the "name" parameter. 

 

As for activating Act, I haven't been able to find too much other than Act.Shared.Licensing.dll but didn't see any methods for activating.

 

Any help/info on these would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Re: Setting preferencess via the SDK

Why use the SDK? It sounds more like a job for silent install. You can deploy default settings with the installation itself:

I can't use SilentInstall because I am working with Act Pro.
