Virtual PC 2007 on Vista Host - XP Activation Loop
Posted on 2007-03-28
I have Vitrual PC 2007 loaded on Vista Ultimate OS. I have several OS's already in use (Windows 2003 Server and Knoppix-STD). I am trying to get XP Pro working and I am running into an activation iussue.
I have activated the software, but every time I start the OS I get the dialog box that says I need to activate the software. When I say YES it eventually tells me I have already activated the software and logs me out (starting the loop). If I say NO it immediately logs me out (again, the loop).
I've tried copying a wpa.dbl from another working XP machine and get the same results. I've tried the registry hack to re-activate the OS. Again, same results.
How do I successfuly activate my version of XP Pro in my Virtual PC 2007 environment on a Vista Ultimate Host?
