    microsoft's registration scheme

    anyone have any experience with microsoft's you-must-register system, like the one used in office2000? looks like some stuff is going on in lvreg.dll, but i don't feel like tracing it, especially if it's already been done
    I promise that I have read the FAQ and tried to use the Search to answer my question.

    Hi,
    the main code for product registration is in osa.exe and mso.dll,
    just look for RegWiz* strings in mso.dll.
    happy reversing,

    There must be a mso.dll in your microsoft shared folder.
    Its a ~9Mb DLL, so disassembling lasts a while;-)
    I have the german version of OfficeXP, maybe there are some differences.
    It seems that the main code is in this file.
    happy reversing,
