  1. Find and copy the Trusted Application Key that was created for Retain
  2. Open the RetainWorker2.cfg file that is used by the Migration Tool
  3. Paste the Trusted Application Key in the line <TAKey></TAKey> between the two tags.
    e.g: <TAKey>86226081013E0000A13874B989837A2986226082013E00009867AD7E9E153613</TAKey>

The Trusted Application Key is not included in the bootstrap file (RetainWorker2.cfg) that is downloaded from Retain (4.2 or newer). This should be fixed in a future release.
