When i try to run:

%systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a

my system doesnt do anything i even tried navigating to the folder and clicking on the file icon but still nothing came up telling me i am activated or a screen giving me any options to activate.

i am running the corp version and want to change to another key i own.

please help...

No i havent deleted anything from the registry yet just want to see if it says me xp is activated. But the prog. doesnt run so i am kind of leary of deletting the entries into the registry if it wont let me re activate it.

lol, good idea. The other way to use a new key without having to do a format/install is to run an upgrade. Go to the installation directory on the cd and run winnt32.exe from the i386 directory.

Find the key in the registry.....export it (normally goes to my documents folder.......check it is there then delete one of the numbers from the key in regedit....... then run the run command with the command above.......see what it says........then restore the key by clicking on the one in my documents. Easy. :D

The reason it doesn't work is because Windows XP Pro Corporate doesn't have activation. Only Windows XP Home and Windows XP Pro.

If you can't get the "%systemroot _" to run. Make sure you have not turned off the Regsvr32: Unregister licdll.dll. It's part of the spy fix. licdll.dll must be running for it to work.

What service is THIS??? I do have a friend that can't for the life of him without losing data made in 10 days since he bought XP PRO get anything with that oobe /a command except a blank screen.
If you could tell me how to find and RUN this service it would help him from having to do a clean install. He does not have a stolen version etc. He's super strick about that since he is the admin at work.

Thanks

ok, if you have ran an antispy type program. A tweek for antispy. it may have truned off a service that will cause %systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a not to run. Just starts, but nothing happens. try this: Start, run, regsvr32 /e licdll.dll
It worked for me. To trun it back off just enter regsvr32 /u licdll.dll

Hope it works for you..
