Win2K Registered Name

On a new install of Win2K we made a typo on the name of the owner. How can we edit that name?

  1. probably this one:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\RegisteredOwner

    <i>It's always the one thing you never suspected.</i>
  2. Opened Regedit and drilled down to CurrentVersion\
    There isn't any reference to corrent owner. Any other ideas?
  3. Not sure why you're not finding it. It's a string value inside CurrentVersion, not a subkey of CurrentVersion (i.e. click once on CurrentVersion, then look on the right pane)

    <i>It's always the one thing you never suspected.</i>
  4. Because I'm a dummy and had never been there!!!
    Thanks for the help. Fixed now.
  5. ....or you could have searched the registry for the name you did type and then modified it. ive done that before.

    ....the birds seemed to be calling him, thought caw....
