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)

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. :eek:

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion(change RegDone value to 1)"
That line doesn't exist in RC1 2505
Damnit I thought I was going to get lucky on this one

The first key doesn't exist. The second one does, but I have NO value in it and the program isn't registered using the corpfiles workaround.
