Can't Change Company Name in New WorkGroup Administrator File


H

HelpMePlease

Everytime I try to create a new Workgroup File with the Workgroup
Administrator and I enter in a new Company Name and Workgroup name it doesn't
save that way. When I join the workgroup it always has the companany name
that must be a default in my computer somewhere.

Does this make sense?

Thanks.

When you installed MS Office, you entered your company name. It was saved in
the registry. That's what you see every time you open workgroup
administrator. It never updates. If you want to change it, change the
registry key or uninstall/reinstall MS Office.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\<userid>\Products\<productid>\InstallProperties

Key: RegCompany

Product id for MS Office 2003 is 9040111900063D11C8EF10054038389C but I
don't know what other versions are.
