Windows XP Validation Issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have just been presented with the following messages
    This copy of Windows did not pass genuine validation for use in your region.
    The product key found on this computer is not Valid for use in your region.
    You may be a victim of software counterfeiting.

    It is a Dell PC being used in the UK.

    Here are the results of the Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool.

  • Hello Stevie,

             Thank you Stevie for posting in the Windows Genuine Advantage forums.  Currently you have a Geographically Blocked PID version of Volume Licensing Windows Professional installed. 
    A "Geographically blocked PID" is a Volume License Key that is valid, but was licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business. Blocked VLK's are Product Keys that Microsoft has received consent from the original owner to block usage of. A VL Product Key is non-transferrable to individuals. In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit.      


    Take care,

    Stephen

  • StevieM,

    Your Dell Dimension 4600i computer currently has a nongenuine installation of XP Pro on it.

    If your Dell has a genuine Microsoft Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) affixed to the computer, the CoA will have listed on it the version and edition of Windows that the computer is licensed to run.  Chances are the CoA will be for either XP Home or Xp Pro.  If so, simply contact Dell to acquire a genuine Dell Operating System Reinstallation CD, do a clean installation of XP with the CD, and your computer will then have a genuine installation of XP.
