Can't get WGA to work RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    I tried everything.

    With IE6 core (as I've deleted the GUI from my Windows installation) I get:

    "Your security settings do not allow Web sites to use ActiveX controls..."

    while all my ActiveX-related settings are set to "Enabled"

    The same happens when I execute legitcheck.hta file (it was unassociatad when I downloaded it but I run it with explorer.exe)

    In Firefox on Diagnostic Site I get:

    "Failed Microsoft Genuine Advantage plug-ins connect with Microsoft validation servers"

    I use Kaspersky Internet Security 2011.

    MGADiag.exe output:

  • Hello, ptrk.mj

    You may try temporarily disabling your firewall and attempt validation/activation.

    You may need to activate windows using the phone activation method. When you call the provided number, do not enter anything and you should be connected to a support agent who should be able to activate Windows.

  • David, I have even tried to uninstall it completely with no luck, though.

    I don't need to activate. I need to pass WGA!

    I'm stuck and the only thing that I'm left with is to skip WGA Notifications update next time :(

    From the error message you posted, you can't connect to the validation server - this is likely due to your firewall. As I mentioned you can try temporarily disabling the firewall and try validating once more.

    From the report, Windows is not activated, you will not pass validation if it is not activated.

  • I finally made it. I assumed wrongly that my copy was preactivated and removed OOBE from my installation. I recompiled my installation and successfully activated. After that I passed WGA :)

    I also wonder:

    1. Can I transfer my WGA status when i want to reformat my hard drive like it can be done with WPA's wpa.dbl file?

    2. Is WGA occupaying my RAM resources now? What is it's functionality right now? It rechecks the status at every boot, uses some database file on HDD?

    3. Do I always have to install WGA Notifications in order to be genuine ? I don't want it to occupy my resources.

     

    Thank you!

  • Q.  "Can I transfer my WGA status when i want to reformat my hard drive like it can be done with WPA's wpa.dbl file?"

    A.  No.  A new hard drive will have a different PID.  Thus, reactivation will be required.

    Q.  "Is WGA occupaying my RAM resources now?"

    A.  No.

    Note:   WGA Notifications does not consume any resources.

  • Hello ptrk.mj,

     

      Activation is required, WGA is not (and WGA does not come in XP by default).  OOBE is part of the Activation system, not WGA, and comes as a required part of XP. 

     

    Thank you,

  • "A.   No.  A new hard drive will have a different PID.  Thus, reactivation will be required."

    Yeah, I've just experienced it myself.

    Anyway, what is PID? Is it Product ID derived form Product Key? I didn't know it gets generated dynamically at every install. If it is than it's a pain unless I can transfer it somehow.

    I'm asking because I prefer to have everything in unattended mode and also would like to get rid of IE Core/OOBE components.

     

    Also if you be kind:

    1. Is there a way to determine what license type I have from CoA? I know it is OEM since there is DELL logo on it but I heard that there are actually two types of OEM license. Well?

    2. Am I entitled to get a copy of Windows installation (e.g. by internet download) from Microsoft if I've lost my CD but have genuine product key?

  • Can anyone clarify, please?

    If you indeed have a Dell Windows XP OEM COA affixed to a Dell computer, you'll have to contact Dell support and ask if a Dell Windows XP Reinstallation disc is still available.  Please see:  Request Dell Backup Discs.
