Changing Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac Splash Screen Registration Information

I stumbled around a bit before finding this solution. From some post:

  1. Quit all Office programs
  2. Delete these files:
    • /Users/<user name>/Library/Preferences/Microsoft/Office 2008/Microsoft Office 2008 Settings.plist
    • /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Office/OfficePID.plist
  3. Start any Office program
  4. Retype your name, company, and product key

It seems that, if you only delete one of them, it regenerates the other.

Thanks!!! It was bugging the heck out of me since I inherited the laptop from an old coworker who is no longer with the company. I finally changed it to my name, thanks for the tip!

You can edit the file if you want.
