MS Publisher

Hi,

Does anybody know how to change the user registration information on MS Publisher? For example, everytime Publisher starts it says "software is registered to...." or when you click on Help and then About Publisher it has the user's information on there.

The software was registered to former employee and now we need to change it so that it will apply to the new person. Thanks in advance for your help!

Do several Finds in the registry for the former employee's name (verbatim). Each time you find that name modify the key with the new person's name.
Remember, editing the registry can be dangerous and could leave you system unusable. Backup the registry before editing ANYTHING within it.

gybass@... - thanks for the quick response. I already tried searching the registry but the search comes back negative. It could not find any information all. I tried doing a search for the person's first name, their last name and both first and last but it failed to find anything. Is there anything I should try?

If the RegKey mentioned at the website given by answer 2 doesn't work, try the following. Don't forget to change both RegCompany and RegOwner.

Uninstall\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{3DE5E7D4-7B88-403C-A3FD-2017A8240C5B}
