hey pple!! is it true that windows can only be activated a limited number of times? i mean the original license which u and i paid for. is it true u can only activate windows with your key 3 times and it becomes like 'dead'? sorry thats what ive heard, im not totally sure
omg that must be so annoying.... I probably would have paid for Windows XP if it just wasnt for wpa.... I change alot of stuff around and i feel it is wrong i have to call MS and ask them for permission before i can use their OS its bull so i got it other ways... If or when they dump wpa i'll shell down money for windows
when it does say you cant activate online anymore, you ring the phone number, waste 10 mins reading out an endless code, to then wait 5 mins as the nice lady on the end of the phone reads you your activation code out.... such a lot of messing about... but there is no limit as the woman on the phone said, ring as many times as you want it's a legal copy.
XP pro requires activation[/QUATE] cough. Yep you sure are using a dodgy cough version. Don't worry your not the only one, but don't talk about it in here please. As i got kicked for talking about that sort of stuff.
but for me im using windows xp home edition so i wanna know whether it can be activated more than 3 times. everywhere they are saying unlimited times but maybe coz they didnt know i am using home edition not prof.
I reinstalled windows xp 13 or 14 times. You can activate it only three times from the internet and then you have to call MS. They keep asking me the how many computers do I have, I wonder if one day the get at me. Guess have to keep trying
I have installed Windows XP Home Edition onto my computer many times and have had NO problems activating my copy except one time when I would not connect to the net to activate so I had to call Microsoft Australia to activate. But after that no problems.
