There is a little known way to do this from within windows by using windows
setup program.  If you are using windows 3.1 or 3.11 there is no
serialno.ini file, the licensed to name is inside of the user exe program.
Run setup.exe or winsetup.exe from the program managers Run command line.
Or Calmira's Run command with the /F paramiter.


you will be presented with a dialog box asked you to enter a new name and
company. Enter the name you want then keep clicking on the continue button
until it asks for a setup disk. Then select exit setup, windows will exit,
then restart windows and check your about box it should have the new name.

Hope that helps
