  • Hello AivarsL,

      The problem is that when using 'Cracked' software,  we can't know if the software has been modified in some way and any modification would cause unusual behavior.  The key should work in Genuine Microsoft Software. The fact that it is not working in 'Cracked' software suggests to me that the problem is with the software.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS

  • Darin Smith, you are right  about software. I get new XP CD and another legal key and now all working fine.
    Thank you all. You can close this topic.

    Validation successful.
