New Product Key in German, English or Multilingual? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    One of our Boss bought a Laptop in Corea, originally with XP Home English, after somebody change it to XP Prof. German without new instalation. After a while he got the message, that his Laptop an ilegal copy from XP had and that he should buy an Original  Key, the question is: which Version should he buy? a German? English? or maybe multilingual? makes any difference the language? what happen when I use the KeyUpdate Tool on his Laptop and I write a Product Key in a wrong language? .

    We would like to avoid a new installation.

    Thank you very much for your help

  • If a computer is running a confirmed non-genuine "German Version" of Windows XP Professional, then only a genuine Product Key for a German version of Windows XP Professional can be used.

  • Thanks Carey,

     

    I already bought a neu German Key, the problem now is that when I run the KeyUpdateTool, it appears a message telling me that many Windows files are corrupted or damage, and if I continue it will be at my own risk....what should I do then???

     

    Thanks to everybody that can help me..

  • I would recommend that you use your new Product Key with a genuine Windows XP (German Version) CD and perform a "repair install".
