Thread: activating XP

  1. #1
    this copy of windows must be activated with microsoft before you can log on..do you want to activate windows now?

    i pressed NO...but it doesnt take me to the desktop, it brings me back to the log in screen.

    what do i do? not trying to do illegal stuff here...i know i have to activate it sooner or later

    because the whole point of activation is taht you cant use windows unless you prove it's legit.

    If it is actually i copied/downloaded version then you should have, and still should, download the corporate version.

    hm...i've read from tutorials that you can acess the the desktop without activation but you only have 15 days to activate before it stops functioning

    corporate version?

    the corporate version is what system admins use in large businesses. Since they need to isntall it on possibly hundreds of computers it would take too long to activate them all so they buy corporate versions.
    The corporate version is the exact same as regular XP Pro except that the activation isn't in it.

    In a nutshell, what he's saying is that there is no activation in the corporate version.

    Get it using bittorrent.
    No actual links are allowed but i could PM you one if you can't find it (i'm sure every single torrent site will have an xp torrent).
