Checking licensing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Sirs,

    I have a copy of Windows XP Professional Edition, and I wish to check its product key.  I don't want to install it and then discover that it's not genuine!  How can I do that, please?

    Thank you

  • Hello Alex,


    There isn't any way to check the product key. Where did you purchase Windows XP Professional and are you suspect the copy may non-genuine? Please visit the How To Tell website located:  http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/ .  Maybe this will provide you with some assistance in assertaining if your copy is genuine or non-genuine.


    Thank you.
