Windows XP Activation -- not happening! RRS feed

  • Question

  • OK, after a computer meltdown best left undiscussed, I had to reinstall my XP, since I haven't gotten around to choking down the idea of installing Windows 7 or any other virus on my system.  Lo and behold, both the online and telephone versions of the activation deal are telling me that this isn't an authentic Microsoft product and the product key I'm reading off the COA isn't valid.  The hell it ain't!  Old, yes -- illegal, no.  Here's what the MGA software thing is telling me:Diagnostic Report (1.9.0027.0):

    Your Key is (I think)  an MSDN Key – a Not-for-Sale Key. If you purchased it outside of an MSDN subscription, you were sold a counterfeit.
    Darin will be able to confirm this later.

  • I have checked the Product Key and Noel is correct, the key is a Blocked MSDN product key.

    The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.
