    Hi--- I'm having issues with an Office Accounting installation. i
    accidentally used a key that has already been used past its limit and now it
    can neither be registered nor used, cos the trial limits has been exhausted.
    I have a new key now...but can't figure out how to use it on that same
    installation cos its kind of like locked. Pls, how do i use the new key? any
    help would be highly appreciated asap.
    Thanks all,

    for windows Vista onwards;

    Check 'view hidden folder' in folder options, then navigate to the following directory
    C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Office Accounting\4.0

    open the pa.dat file in notepad, delete contents and save it. Everything should be fine now.
    for windows xp, the directory is;

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
    \Microsoft\Office Accounting\3.0
