Thread: Very easy solution for key change problems

    Hi, I have a DELL OEM version of Win XP PRO and could not get
    SP1 to install
    Hunting around I found the XP PRO Key changer and viewer
    progs which I though would answer my problems
    However, like many of you this didn,t work
    The DOS window with the various possible keys came up but
    did not then bring up the windows registration screen.

    In frustration I downloaded xp anti-spy which did have an option
    which allowed me to get the reg screen up
    However none of the Serial Keys generated using the Gen
    Prog worked, all were invalid. This was as I now discover because
    I have the OEM version.

    I almost gave up, however I found a link to a very very nice
    program that automates the whole process. All you do is
    enter your current Serial Key and it not only generates a
    new one but does all the registry editing for you.
    It was as easy as that, I then restaredt windows and
    proceeded to install SP1 which I had already downloaded

    Hope this helps, I think it should work with all XP versions
    certainly worked with mine.



    Sorry, here is the link

    Something else you can do is this:

    "click on start-->run, type regedit
    go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion Look for a string value RegDone. If its not there add the value from Edit-->New-->String Value. Name it as "RegDone". Double click on the key in the right hand pane and type the value as "1". I guess it just tricks your computer into thinking the activation is done. Someone else posted it somewhere else, but I'm not sure who. *Sorry*
