    Well, heres the deal: My friend installed a original Windows Xp Pro version on his 3 year old Dell computer. After a couple of days a litte "window" poped up every time he booted the puter. it said: You have X-days until you need to activate your copy off Win XP Pro.

    He ignored that and yesterday it begun. When he starts he puter it wants him to activate. It wants a code. He tryied the Windows cd key but it didnt help much.

    So mu question is: Wtf is this ****, what code and where can we get it? pls help me here.

    The code is supplied by M$ either online or over the phone and it's not the same as the product code. ;)

    Stands Pro for Professional ?
    I thought this version didn't need any activation.

    I wonder whats going on, but have no answer.

    Windows XP needs activation...make no mistake about it.
    You gotta contact M$ to get the code.

    It's the "corporate" versions don't need activation. ;)

    Aha. Thanx, didn't know that.

    So the Corporate is used for organisations with more than one licence. Home and Professional are both single licence-versions (?)

    yep, good for you, you're catching on....but corp is usually for several hundred licenses

    you'll have to contact M$ to get it activated at this point. Once it goes past 30 days I don't think you can do it online anymore. but if it is completely legal then you don't have anything to worry about
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
