    Yes, you have to find where the software stores its settings (registry, ini file, for example) and change them manually.
    Is it a internal software or can it be downloaded somewhere so I can have a look ?

    no its internal software, by a company called epicor. where do programs usually store this info

    It depends : either in registry or in files.
    Get something like process monitor : it shows you file and registry activity : you can narrow it to that epicor software executable and see through the activity if you see something meaninful.

    Otherwise, you can use InstallRite ( ) which will create a first snapshot. Then you will have to change a setting in the epicor program, and make the second snapshot in InstallRite which will display you which files and registry entries changed between the first and second snapshot.
