Solved: How to update the XP license code?

Q: Solved: How to update the XP license code?

A friend installed his copy of XP on my machine many months ago. I already had my own license for XP at that point, but as a matter of convenience at the time, we installed his copy. Now as you know, MS won't supply automatic updates anymore, because they think I have a stolen copy of XP. Technically correct, but realistically, not quite that bad. How do I tell the operating system my correct license code? Will I need to reinstall the OS, or can it be done with less fuss?

Thanks.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I've been transferring stuff from my old XP computer to my new W7, and today I finally got around to activating Windows 7 since time was starting to run out (and I hadn't gotten the code along with the computer as i'd ordered, i got it a few days ago with an apology & reduced price)
So yeah... I typed in the code and everything was ok.

Opened My Computer to access my old harddisks because there were a few things left to transfer before I'd switch them out for the remaining 2 old harddisks (yeah my old comp was filled to the brim with those stuff)... but the only harddisk available is C.
I can't access E and F, they don't seem to exist!! O_o

What's wrong??? Are they still safe? Can I still acess them if I "re-install" them into the computer, or will it not accept any of those old harddisks again??? *panics!!!*

I migrated from XP to Vista on a new computer. Vista has WMP 11 bundled. I am trying to update my DRM file to be able to play purchased music on my new computer.

I have followed MSN Support's suggestions regarding security settings in Internet Explorer and get to the final step - "Authorize new computer." When I click on the button nothing happens, but it has tried to process and gives me an error in the information bar that says there was a script error in line 3538 position 9.

Again, I have followed MSN's instructions to the letter. I reported back to them that instructions didn't work and they said they would "keep working on it" - yeah, right!

Please help.

Hi, I just purchased Win 8. Can I install it on all my machines with one license code? I ask because I want to test it on a laptop running XP first then migrate it to my laptop running 7. Will this cause any issues with activation?
Thanks!

If you bought the normal Win8 upgrade it's good for 1 PC only, once installed with the key code the activation will have been used.

Hi Roy,

Try activating once more, but make sure you read the key carefully. It won't contain any of these characters:

A common mistake is to misread a Q as an 0 or O.

If that still fails, try phone activation:

Is it possible to clone an existing Windows 7 pro OEM registered harddrive onto a different new computer, then just change the product key using the 2nd new OEM license code? Am hoping for an alternative to reinstalling everything new again plus our local computer shop has closed down where the first computer was purchased.

Have a nicely running Windows 7 Pro OEM registered computer and ordered another new computer(newer different hardware) with a 2nd Windows 7 Pro OEM license.

Already own and installed one license of the 3-pack versions of Office 2007 Home and 3-pack of Bitdender Interent Security 2011(had huge install issues almost destroyed my existing Windows install, took weeks to get everything working again). Plus various other freeware software setups, documents, pictures, home movies, etc. Another big hurdle to a full clean install is our unreliable and slow 30/k internet download speed out in the country.

Searched around this forum and this good post below by GregRocker detailing cloning BEFORE activation but we have already activated and do not want to invalidate one of my two OEM licenses.

Since you say you want to do this legally, then do you have a second license for Windows 7 Home Premium to use on your desktop?

A:Cloning Windows 7 OEM with 2nd license code onto a new computer?

It won't work. You can install using the OEM DVD (or an iso image using multibootiso) for another computer, then activate it by phone if the licenses are for the same version of windows, but because the hardware configurations aren't identical, the drivers for the other system will probably cause a ton of BSODs, if the system even boots

I have an HP IMC Basic 50 node edition software installed from last summer and a valid paid license and it has been working fine for 9 months.  It is installed on a virtual server Win2008R2 Std. and my hunch is that the MAC for the physical server is tied somehow to the license code.  I moved this virtual a couple of months ago to another physical 2012R2 server, and the virtual server has not been restarted since.  So, after an extended power outage, where I had to shutdown the physical before the UPS went caput, I booted it up, and all appears well, but when I use IE to get back into IMC, I get the Invalid license error code:50904.  It appears possibly my license or something has gotten whack?  The license file appears fine, but it's obviously not liking things.  I went through the steps to download a new license and try again, but to no avail.  Does anyone know who I can contact or how I can get a license that will work.  When I go to HPE site, it says regular HP support helps for IMC.  I can't seem to find a number or contact at HP that will get me where I need to be.  If you know of a way to get help, it would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you,  ToneWalker

I CAN'T boot into "safe mode" either (all of the solutions to this problem I have found online assume I can boot in safe mode). When I try, the "safe mode" window appears. However, inside of it a window that says "USERINIT.EXE" is open and rapidly scrolling as if it where in an infinite loop.

Is there some way I can use the "Recovery Console" to delete a file and perhaps force a "Repair Install"? Would a "Repair Install" possibly fix this? I'm really in a bad situation here. Can anyone help me?

You will be told that the drive is locked, and the CHKDSK will run at he next boot - hit the Y key, and then reboot. The chkdsk will take a few hours depending on the size of the drive, so be patient!

After the CHKDSK has run, Windows should boot normally (possibly after a second auto-reboot) - then run the SFC

Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

1.24.1 update is available. What gives here?
My VS Code identifiables:
Version 1.23.1

Hello,Some third party programs can affect the Windows Update service. If you are running any third party applications such as Spyblocker, Internet or web accelerators (programs designed to boost the speed of the Internet connection), security or anti-virus programs (Norton, McAfee, etc.), I recommend you temporarily disable or uninstall them and then try accessing Windows Update later. If the problem still happens, try the following steps:Rename the Windows Update Softwaredistribution folder================================================1. Close all the open windows. 2. Click "Start", click "All programs", and click "Accessories". 3. Right-click "Command Prompt", and click "Run as administrator".4. In the "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type in "net stop WuAuServ" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Note: Please look at the cmd window and make sure it says that it was successfully stopped before we try to rename the folder. However, if it fails, please let me know before performing any further steps and include any error messages you may have received when it failed.
5. Click "Start", in the "Start Search" box, type in "%windir%" (without the quotes) and press Enter.6. In the opened folder, look for the folder named "SoftwareDistribution".7. Right-click on the folder, select "Rename" and type "SDold" (without the quotes) to rename this ... Read more

Hi - I was looking through my update history and I noticed the above failure (dated 12/2/2008) but I cannot find any matching error codes from the details help links. The only information I can find is that this update is important as a prerequisite install prior to the upcoming SP1

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

If the file is too large (8MB compressed), remove the older CBSPersist cab files until the final file is below the limit - you can always post them separately after zipping them. (the forum doesn't allow the upload of bare CAB files, for a number of reasons)

Hi, and thank you for taking the time out of your day to help me with this problem. This problem has made me want to volunteer my own time to help others here (after the appropriate training) because of how much money it has cost me (in terms of time spent away from work) and because of the difficulty in tracing these issues when they become embedded. No one deserves to go through this, and I can imagine someone with a little less experience having even more of a nightmare (and I have no problem admitting how basic my knowledge really is.) Brief history, timeline is iffy, apologies: Desktop PC running Windows 7 Installation (64 bit) from previous owner. Has SSD w/ main install (and games), and another SATA HDD, partitioned w/ another Windows 7 Installation which I thought I had neutered, but perhaps not well enough, and a simple Media partition for anything I'd like to store (gameplay videos, code repos, schoolwork, etc.) My main account has administrator access which I realize is a no-no, so I do intend to fix that once I'm sure I can do so safely. Have had some random occurrences w/ PUPs and AdWare after a long history of no issues. Anticipated that it had something to do with an exploit and began updating anything I could imagine might be expressing a vulnerability. Current Symptoms: Windows does not acknowledge MWB as an AV software. I do have Windows Firewall enabled, and have for the duration of these issues, and for a period preceding it. ... Read more

I'm using XP Home, and in the device manager, under "SCSI and RAID controllers", "SCSI/RAID host contoller has an exclamation point. It says that the registry info for this device may be corrupt (code 19). The trouble shooter and Windows Update tell me to check for updates to the driver (which there are none of) or to reinstall the device (do they mean the driver? I dont see a way to reinstall the device. I dont even know what hardware its needed for). When I uninstall the driver and reboot to reinstall it, it tells me it cant start, and needs to start in the last known good configuration, which was before I unistalled the driver.

Hi all,

I'm in need of some help.

My stepdads computer stopped applying Windows updates after getting the following error: "Update Windows license and product key tokens failed with 0x80070005."

I've followed various advice and I'm now in a situation where Windows thinks it's unlicensed! I can assure you the PC has been licensed and trouble free for the past three years or so until this happened. I know the computer was taken away to a specialist and they removed some software in my absence, my step dad isn't very computer literate so getting exact information and timings is impossible.

The PC is still working, but this is a blocker to resolving another issue, so I really hope you guys can sort me out.

I've run chkdsk and scandisk, no problems there.

Thanks in advance

Hello,

I am using Win7 32-bit Premium. I'm trying to run a Batch file with several dll's, and I'm getting this error:

Banner: Error Occurred - Add License
Body: Unable to enumerate resources. Error Code: 15106

I have tried to google this, but I haven't gotten any helpful answers. Also, if I even try to register any of the Batch's DLLs manually, I get this error:

Banner: RegSvr32
body: The Module "C:\Bla Bla Bla...." was loaded but the call to "INSERT DLL HERE" failed with error code 0x80028011c.

For more information about this problem, search online using the error code as a search term.

Any and all help appreciated!
