    It really depends on the Software. Sometimes that info is somewhere inside an ini file, sometimes it is in the registry. Also, sometimes licensing requirements might not allow you to change this or at least not without first getting the OK from the software manufacturer.

    The discontinued X-Setup has a control for making this change.  A full license key is included (provided by X-Teq) at

    Only software stored in a non-encrypted registry key can be modified with this tool. X-Teq X-Setup Pro Change Registered Company/User Name
    Anyway, it is easy to use.
