Registry hack for version?

I know there is a way to fake out the computer by hacking the registry so certain programs that check to see what version of Windows you are running will be fooled into thinking that they are the correct version. I have an Antivirus program (Panda) that only wants to run on Windows 2000 Pro. I need it to run on Win2k Adv. Server; therefore, I need to hack the registry.

Anyone? Anyone? Anyone? Anyone?

thanks!

I think that would go against the eula that panda has with thier software.  they do offer a server based product, any I think that if you wanted to stick with panda,  you'll have to buy that product...

 quoth panda's website...

If an antivirus program says it cannot run in a server OS you can be 100% percent sure it will not run. There are specialized versions of antivirus software for servers and not because the producer wants you to buy a different version but simply because they are needed.
