change company name in Visual Studio

P: n/a
When I first installed VS, there was a different company name than there is
now and now I need to change the default company. I'm talking about the
default company name that exists in the copyright info when you create a new
assembly.

Changing the company name on the MSDN subscription is pretty simple - just
call MS --- but

Hi Matt,

Please see following MSDN library documentation:

#Template Parameters
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...aa(VS.80).aspx

For the CompanyName in AssemblyInfo, it's $registeredorganization$ which
uses value from registry key value from HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\RegisteredOrganization.

Hope this helps.
Sincerely,
Walter Wang (wa****@online.microsoft.com, remove 'online.')

There is no RegisteredOrganization key --- I've searched not only the path
specified, but the entire registry.

Hi Matt,

Which os are you using? Please see if this document helps:

If the key doesn't exist already, please create it and try again.

I went back and looked for the RegisteredOrganization key again and found
it. I apparently was looking for a folder called RegisteredOrganization
under Current Version before. It's working exactly as I need it to now --
thank you, and I'm sorry for the confusion.
