Access 2.0 Problem

I have an old workstation running MS Office 4.3 w/ Access 2.0. Does anyone
know how to change the licensed user name. I tried reinstalling the program
from the original 3.5" disks but the old "licensed to" company name seems to
be recorded somewhere on the #1 disk and I can't change it.

Thank you,

Rene

This was the Access 2.0 version of MS Product Activation.
If there was an easy way to defeat it, no one ever mentioned
it in public. The standard avoidance procedure was to
write protect the disks before installing.....

Or make a copy of disk # 1 and use the copy when installing.
