XP Product Activation Workaround Tags: Windows XP Software Last response: October 21, 2001 12:22 AM in Windows XP Share Michael_B October 20, 2001 12:39:50 AM This was in the LangaList that I receive that is supposed to be a workaround for activation. If anyone here has XP and can tell me if it works or not let me know. Here is is. Disconnect from the internet, install xp, reboot in safe mode, run regedit, modify HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\MICROSOFTNT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon (change Activation Required value to zero) then HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion (change RegDone value to 1) More about : product activation workaround btvillarin October 20, 2001 12:50:58 AM Do you get the Plus! version? I just get the free standard, and I don't remember reading anything. Which newsletter (date) is it? I wanna read it... Don't pay any attention to my chickenscratch. Michael_B October 20, 2001 3:09:22 AM I get the standard edition. The date of the newsletter is 9/10/01.
