KiXtart script: Change a PC's registered owner on Windows NT/2000/XP

By Ric Liang

The OWNER.KIX script will change the registered owner of a Windows NT, 2000, or XP computer by editing two registry values.

The script was written in the free KiXtart scripting language. You must download and install the KiXtart utility from

before using the owner.kix script.

To change a PC's owner with the owner.kix script, take the following steps:

1. Copy KIX32EXE.EXE, the KiXtart interpreter, the root directory on the target PC's C: drive.

2. Copy the OWNER.KIX file to the root directory on the target PC's C: drive.

3. Using a text editor, create a file name OWNER.CMD that contains the following syntax:
@kix32exe c:\owner.kix

4. Enter "owner" at a command prompt on the target PC.

5. Enter the new owner's first and last name when prompted. OWNER.KIX will then automatically update the necessary registry values with that information.

6. Reboot the machine for the changes to take full effect.
