    Hi carim. I think that Pastel uses the name of the computer in the configuration of it's registration code. If you change the name of the computer you will need to re-register Pastel.

    Hi There

    Once you have changed the computer name you can go into regedit >> Hkey_local Machine >> Software >> Softline >> "Your Pastel Version" for 32 bit machine, for 64 bit the path is regedit >> Hkey_local Machine >> Software >> WOW6432NODE >> Softline >> "Your Pastel Version". When you open "your pastel version" you will see the old computer name, delete this then register the package as a workstation.

    Hope this helps
