Activate windows XP professional School license RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    I am a faculty member in a  university. Our department technician told me our windows xp license is valid for faculty members to install in home computers.

     

    I have the product key

    <removed...Please do not post your Product Key in a public Forum>

     

    But, I can not activate it and the technician has no idea which is going on.

     

    Here is the output from MGADT program:

  • Hi mrlancelot,

     

    If you cannot successfully activate via the internet, then choose the alternative option to "activate by phone".

    How to activate Windows XP by phone
    To contact a Microsoft customer service representative to activate Windows by phone, follow these steps:

    1. Click 'Start', point to 'All Programs', point to 'Accessories', point to 'System Tools', and then click 'Activate Windows'.
      Or,
    click the Windows Activation icon in the notification area (aka system Tray).
      Or,
    clicking Start button, then Run, and type in "oobe/msoobe /a", then press the Enter key located on your keyboard.

    2) Choose Activate Windows by Telephone and follow the prompts.  If the automated telephone activation is not accepted, you will be offered the option to speak with a live activation representative.  Choose that option. 

    3) The rep will ask a few questions for the purpose of confirming that you are still using your license for XP in accordance with the EULA.  If so, the rep will issue an activation code for you to enter into the Activation Wizard.

     

    Thank you,
