WGA Validation Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Windows XP Professional that just seems to not want to validate on my computer. I had previously installed it on my computer years ago but now of some reason, the darn thing just gave me this INVALID CDKEY hoo-hah. I went to a site to see whats going on and how to fix the issue.

    This didn't work. I looked on the forums and was supposed to place these specs on a forum thread. I'd appreciate all the help I can get. I really don't want to have to go through and buy another copy of XP.

  • Hi SSJ_Vegeta,

    Currently, your computer has a Volume Licensing edition of XP Pro installed (Line 8), and that installation was done with a now-blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK) (Line 2).  VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired.  Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, ie, more installations of XP using that key than authorized.

    As a rule, VL editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP are Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer. (i.e. Resellers should NOT be selling a computer with a Volume Licensing edition of Windows pre-installed).

    This is why you were seeing the "software counterfeiting" messages on your computer, because the current installation of XP is an unauthorized installation.

    Thank you,
    Darin
