How to Change Foxpro 2.5 DOS signon registration display

How to Change Foxpro 2.5 DOS signon registration display

(OP)
I have purchased a Foxpro 2.5 DOS from a company who no longer uses it. When I install it to my system, it displays the original owners name and company name as the registered owner. How can I get this changed?
Thanks for any help.

RE: How to Change Foxpro 2.5 DOS signon registration display

Yow! I had the same problem years ago due to a stupid boss: like your software's former owner, they installed the product using the original diskettes, and that brands those disks forever. The information is encrypted on the diskettes (disk 1, IIRC), and while there may be some hacking method of doing it, I've never encountered anyone who knows it.

You might try asking MS for a new diskette one, and offer to send them your original as proof of ownership. I wouldn't hold out a lot of hope, though.

Thanks for the reply. I'll try to contact MS.
