  • Question

  • Hi,
    I had built a windows XP template for our VMware software and after deploying an a vm off of this template, I receive the above message after logging in the first time.

    When creating the template, I had changed the license key to a Volume License Key from my compliance officer and was able to run windows updates, etc for quite some time.  I have run a key program to confirm that the OS on the VM still has the same VLK and it does.  Does anyone have any other ideas or did I do something wrong.

    I am logged in as an administrator, with full rights, active x is installed, etc.  Thanks.
