Windows XP validation code to download a patch KB893357 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to download patch KB893357 (to support WPA2 from my netgear wireless adapter.)

    That next page requires that I validate my Windows XP but the validation tool which issues the code doesn't work anymore with XP .

    So, I've downloaded the  the newer "genuine advantage validation tool" but it does not issue a code when it is done checking my system.

    I do have a genuine XP but now I can't download the patch above mentioned because I don't have the validation code.

    Many posts mix product key and activation code with VALIDATION CODE.

    Thank you.

  • You need to access the download pages using Internet Explorer rather than FireFox - FF frequently barfs on the ActiveX code required for validation.
