  • Hello Samier,

    From your Diagnostic Report, your copy of Windows XP Pro are genuine, but I also see that a part of the Diagnostic Report is missing. The missing portion is a bunch of XML tags and text we call the XML Blob.

    The missing XML Blob usually points to a problem (XML Issue) that is larger then just WGA, but it does have a direct affect on your ability to validate Windows. Please follow the below steps and tell us if this resolves your issue.


    1) Download and install MSXML 6.0 at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=993c0bcf-3bcf-4009-be21-27e85e1857b1&DisplayLang=en (this should correct the XML issue)

    2) Delete the file LegitCheckControl.DLL from the c:\windows\system32 folder (this removes the WGA Validation ActiveX control, in case it is corrupt or improperly installed)

    3) Download and install the WGA Validation ActiveX control at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=69479  (this will re-install the WGA Validation ActiveX control which is required to validate)

    4) Go to http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/diag/ and click the "Start Diagnostic" button, if there are any problems listed, click the "Resolve Now" button. The site will either resolve the problem itself or provide steps for you to follow. Once you complete the Diagnostic without error, click the "Validate Windows" button.

     If after you complete these steps you are still having validation issues please include the exact URL you are trying to validate from along with any error codes/messages you may receive.  Also please re-run the MGA diagnostic tool and include this with your reply.


    Thank you,
