Windows XP-Prof validation code.

(OP)
Having reinstalled XP-Prof many times since it was released in 2000 AT last I cannot get a validation code from MS any more.
Phone numbers to call in South Africa no longer exist.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

Can you not follow along with the video and just push the buttons as he does in the video? It has the translation in the video of what it is asking.

If not will have to see if there is another number that is still functioning.

Thanks for a great post. I tried the video version and successfully established the numbers indexed on the cellphone to be 800 531 042. At a loss as to how to enter them into SEVEN blocks. Tried entering the digits in groups of 5 and 2 which didn't work either.

Having resolved the Office 7 I am still faced with this scary problem. :-(

So Im assuming activating over the internet option doesnt work due to a hardware replacement? If you are getting close to the end of the 30 day trial you can always punt and reset it. Google has a ton of methods to reset that timer.

Is it not yet time to move on from Windows XP? Just sayin'
I feel as if I woke up from time travel to 2005

RE: Windows XP-Prof validation code.

@goombawaho - I agree but I'd be lying if I didn't say that I had a XP VM that I occasionally play around with or spin up really old games I cant get to play in W7 or above. Perhaps the OP has a good reason for keeping it around.....
