Hi guys

I have a client who has an illegal version of XP Pro Corporate Edition and
wants to go legal. Is there any way yo simply change the CD Key from the
Corporate Edition to the OEM version?

I've found instances where the Corporate Edition can be changed from the
leaked key to the legal key, but nothning so far that can change from
Corporate to OEM and I really don't want to have to delete his current
Windows directory.

Please cc reply to charlton@fix-it.com.au

Thanks muchly

Charlton

Q. "Is there any way you simply change the CD Key from the
Corporate Edition to the OEM version?".

A. No. You'll need to perform a "Repair Install" using the new
Windows XP CD and Product Key.
