Used computer validation?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I Bought my computer used from a school and was assured my version of XP Pro was legit.  I have had no problem until this recent MS Crackdown (or is it shakedown) began.  I have no disk, no documentation, no nothing. 

    I bought this computer for EMail and word processing and it is only worth about $300.00.  I cannot justify paying 150.00 for "Validation" when someone, somewhere already did, about 5 years ago or more.

    I am pasting the info that other strings have suggested and hope to hear from you soon.

  • A volume License is non-transferrable to individuals since the VL license is sold and licensed to the original comapny that purchased a VL license.  VL licenses generally are non-trasferrable to individuals.

  • Genuine Validation Status: Blocked VLK indicates the presence of an illegally licenced Volume License version of Windows XP Professional. I suggest you follow the instructions to purchase a properly licensed version.

  • So,

    Someone has a volume lisenced version and puts it on a computer, but it becomes illegal when I buy it?  So every time a computer changes hands Microsoft gets 150 bucks?  Or did the person with the volume lisence never have a volume lisence?

  • Volume licenses are typically reserved for use by corporations and businesses alike. They aren't slated for retail sale. The original computer user probably should not have been using a Volume License. If they were from a corporation, they should have uninstalled the product before selling the machine, as Volume Licenses belong to purchasing corporations, not the computer its installed on (like OEM).

  • So....

    The answer is yes.

    Every time a computer changes hands, Microsoft gets $150.00.

    Way cool for y'all.

    Sucks for the rest of us.
