how to manually clear accounting load string

Hi, I installed pcounter on my netware 5.1 server, and have since
upgraded to netware 6.5. I've let my pcounter maintenance license lapse,
and now I want to remove accounting from my iprint printers, but found
that the "remove accounting" button in my old version of pcounter doesn't
clear the accounting load string.

My guess is that this is fixed in a later version which I can't afford to
buy. Is there a way to manually clear out the accounting load string so
that PCOUNTDP doesn't show up any more?

I've checked every DS field on every object I can think of, checked the
netware registry, checked config files, and i can't seem to find where
this value is stored.

I'm running netware 6.5 sp4a, edirectory 8.7.3.7, pcounter 5.20.

Thanks in advance,
Mike

Does PCOUNTDP run as an .nlm? If so, you should be able to
rename it from filename.nlm to filename.nlm.die or something
creative. Then you can unload the .nlm at the command line and
be done with it.

If it's mentioned in autoexec.ncf, it could be commented out, and
then the .nlm could be unloaded at the command line. The next
time the server is restarted, it will simply fail to load.

Sorry, I didn't mean to suggest I want to get rid of pcounter on all
printers, just on specific printers. So uninstalling pcounter or
renaming the nlm isn't an option for us. I did manage to get this done
by downloading the trial version of their latest software, but I'll need
to reinstall it every 30 days.
Thanks
