    I am getting ready to sell my old computer. The OS is window XP. I am cleaning up some of the programs, but want to leave a CAD program on the computer. There is one problem, when I start CAD, my name appears as the license holder of this program. How do I keep my name from appearing.

    The Only Solution is :

    To remove it and Install It Again without your name. Use someone else name or mixed alphabets.

    If you are comfortable editing the registry, open regedit and search for all occurrences of "RegisteredOwner".

    Why would you want to leave CAD? Would it have the full license?

    I know there are certain tweaking programs that can change the comp name.

    Don't mind buck52. :)

    As it has been said I would uninstall then reinstall or edit the registry.
