Battery Replacement Date Update

I have a (save of Technical Data)

Model: Back-UPS 500
Serial number: BB0319005669
Firmware revision: 6.4.I
USB firmware revision: c1
CPU: Intel Pentium
RAM: 736 MB
Free disk space: 43,615 MB
Software version: PowerChute Personal Edition 2.0
Operating system: Microsoft Windows XP (5.1.2600)

I changed the battery last November and clicked "I have just replaced my battery" when asked but the battery date (7/05/2003) remains the same.

I have even hacked the registry but nainserv.exe resets the date (original UPSBatteryManufacture 11943 and set it to 14900---"Technical Data" shows the new date but starting and stoppong the APC Service resets it)

So two questions:

1) How do I set the date so I don't need to keep a post-it stuck to the UPS (!) ?
2) Why don't I have all the sexy test and battery icons like everybody else? (function of UPS model I guess)


and yes this just keeps an old box going (and I did get the UPS for free...)
