While you are running your project in Xojo (or Xojo) you don't need to register, but if you compile for any target, you should or nice popup windows will show that the app is not registered.

Register in an application subclass to make registering as early as possible.

In case you get this message: "RegisterMBSPlugin()', giving the message "This
item conflicts with another item of the same name" you have something else in your plugins folder, e.g. a html file.

Possible reasons for this failing:
- The calculations you make on the strings or serial number do not create the same value on every machine (Intel vs. PPC, e.g. endian problems)
- You use MBS functions before calling registration function (e.g. you register in event and use the plugin for a control.)
- You mix different plugin versions in your Xojo folder.

This function works only for 2015 and newer serial numbers.
