Registry Editing Tips
Using Update Wizard Without Having To Register
The Update Wizard is a real handy utility to automate the updating job by checking Microsoft's Web site for new versions of drivers and other Windows components. If it finds newer revisions than the ones you have, it offers to update your system for you.
Now this is really a dream come true for most of us. But it seems like if you skipped Microsoft's Registration Wizard when you installed Windows 98, the Update Wizard will refuse to run. There is a workaround to this problem. Open up the registry editor and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion Create a new string value called RegDone with the value 1. Next go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Welcome\. If it isn't already there, create a key called RegWiz. This should do the trick.
