Validate XP RRS feed

  • Question


    I cannot validate my version of Windows XP which I need to do to download a codec for the Media Player. I have been in touch with Microsoft people who sent me the MGADiag.exe file and I can't even get to it. I get this message when I try: "Windows cannot access the specified, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

  • Dr GG,


    Please try to validate @ the following location: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine. Next click on "Validate Windows" in the upper right hand corner. Please tell us what happens. Also are you the only person using this computer and if so do do you have administrator rights on the machine?  Thank you,
