When you get to the registry keys that show "On-Screen Takeoff" as the "Display Name", locate the following registry keys:

  • RegCompany
  • RegOwner

Double-click each key and modify this key according to your needs.

When you are done, close the Registry Editor and launch On-Screen Takeoff product again.

This does not affect licensing or ownership in any way - this only changes what On-Screen Takeoff displays on its "About" splash screen.
