Suddenly my XP Pro is not valid anymore: Geographically blocked PID RRS feed

  • Question

  • I moved to Latin America and installed my old XP Pro on a new desktop PC. Worked perfectly for a few years, now suddenly I get the message that it might have been falsified. The dvd is the backup copy of the old original disk which had been damaged. What I can see at first glance is that I have a "Geographically blocked PID". Can Windows lose its validity because I move to another country?
    Anyway if I follow the links that MS is offering, I would have to buy Windows 8, which not only means waste days and days with reinstalling all software (of which in some cases I don't even have the exe files because I installed right away from the internet) but also there is some to me important software that runs only with XP. So among others I would have to upgrade the old Autocad for thousands of USD although I am quite happy with the one I have.

    I would rather like to buy a new XP Pro license for the installed system, than waste lots of time and money for non-MS software updates. Is this possible?

    Here is my data:

  • Your installed copy of Windows XP is no longer genuine.  Consider purchasing a "full version" of Windows 7 Professional.

  • Your Windows License is a Volume one - the owner of the license has probably reduced their requirement, and you now fall outside the area covered by that license.

    If your current license was ever valid for your use, it no longer is, and you will have to replace it with a legal Full license.

    MS hasn't sold Windows XP licenses for some years, now, and your machine appears to be recent enough to be able to run Windows 7 or Windows 8.

    You will find it easier to acquire Windows 7 Pro than Windows XP - The reason for Pro is that it allows use of XP Mode (a Windows XP Virtual Machine). Unfortunately Windows 8 has no such capability.

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
