In windows Xp it was possible to just delete the application data pertaining to the application and reuse it.
My question is how do i reuse that same software in windows 7?
Do i need to regedit and delete the data files? or is there something simpler, help me out please, and by the way its not a demo of an 800$ program its a program that doesn't exist anymore and the only version i could find is a trial that only works for 30 days.

Instead of an Application Data folder (like in XP), Win7 uses a folder C:\Users\[username]\AppData. From the three folders there, it will most likely be in "Roaming", but it could be in any of them. (BTW, AppData might be hidden, in which case you will have to tell Win7 to show hidden folders.)

Not sure which folder you mean; what is its path? (Navigate to it in Explorer, then click in the bar at the top where it lists the folders, Ctrl+C to copy it, and then Ctrl+V to paste it here.)

I really don't know. I would think that the same thing that worked with XP would work in Win7. The program's folder must be in AppData somewhere! Did you check in all three folders within AppData? (Local, LocalLow, and Roaming?)

Some programs don't create an AppData folder until you have actually run them; did you do this yet?
