    I was just at the guides section , and i saw a guide about "Chaneging XP Professional Corparate product key".
    then I saw the "Windows Activation" thing.
    well I'm pretty shure I'm using xp pro corprate and I've never heard that activation thing.
    and I dont have it in my system tools folder.

    anyone knows whats that about?

    Basically, the corp edition is pre-activated in a sense. The same activation stuff is there... it just never gets used. No real mystery or anything.

    I'd be curious to see if someone used a key that required activation (OEM, retail professional) in a corporate edition (requires some fiddling around in the setupp.ini file to use one) if it would then require activation.
