Windows is activated, WGA says otherwise. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having issues with a copy of Windows XP Pro installed in a VM (under VMware 6). It took a while for me to activate it, because I hadn't decided on final VM specs yet. When I decided to activate, the activation procedure went without a problem.

    The issue I'm having now is that the WGA system keeps bugging me about how "not genuine" this copy is, especially while logged off. I tried re-activating, but the activation tool doesn't go further than "is already activated'. Please find my output of MDAdiag below. I'm posting this now because lately I've been getting more elaborate dialogs insisting me to activate my copy.

    I have an MSDN subscription license which entitles me to install this product in a VM for development/testing purposes, which is exactly what I'm using it for.

    Sincerely,

    Dave Van den Eynde

  • I fixed the problem by re-installing the WGA Notifications plugin/add-on/update/whatever manually. I read the message '-read before posting-' before I posted, just didn't think of trying it out too.
