XP Pro Activation query

Discussion in 'Windows Desktop Systems' started by Powerchordpunk, Jun 8, 2002.

  1. If I wanted to install XP Pro (not corp.) on two computers using the same installation cd but different keys (validly generated), would activation work for both? The two valid keys are for XP Pro, not pro corporate

    Maybe...

    If you are generating keys that work, sure it will work but...you are violating the license policy ONE computer per purchase.
    YES! It will work if you have the right keygen proggie.
    I think SP 1 beta is giving everyone nightmares LOL.

    One problem with generating new valid keys is that the product key you generate may well belong to another registered user.
    It will work but activation is a gamble. I would not send activation info to MS.

    Key generator

    I tried it, stop me if I am wrong but it generated and checked 8keys for XP Pro and when it came to instalation. NONE of them worked!

    I would be interested who has got the keygen to produce a working key!

    You can install XP on to as many machines as you like. But you then have to buy a valid activation code for each one

    I don't know what you mena by validly generated. But... I'll turn the tide of this topic...

    After the Servce Pack is released, you will be able to install XP on more than one machine and gain a 5 day grace period, just in case you need to reformat one of the machines or something.

    Do not talk about keygens or I will set xsiv on you.
