Problem: Comments has been registered, but still shows up as an evaluation version
This article applies to Comments.

Comments has been registered, but still shows up as an evaluation version. Comments says it's registered when run from the command line, but says it's not registered when run by the web server as a CGI program.
If Comments appears to be set up correctly when you run it from the command line, but can't find
the SMTP host, or thinks it's not registered, or has other problems when you run it as a CGI
program, then you have a permissions problem in the system registry. When you run Comments from
the command line, it runs in the security context of the logged-on user. However, when Comments
runs as a CGI program, it runs in the security context of the web server (usually a special account,
named something like IIS_machinename). The problem occurs when you (the logged-on user) have
access to the registry, but the web server does not.
