Cannot Change XP Pro OEM Product Key
Posted on 2007-07-20
I am currently attempting to change the product keys on several Windows XP Pro OEM installations I did so that I can activate them. I installed the copies using the default XP OEM key from microsoft using an unattended setup. I am then attempting to change the key by using the Magic Jellybean Keyfinder (which uses a windows script to change the key), but i receive the following error message:
Windows script host
An error has occurred. This was probably caused by the keying of an invalid number. Please check it and try again.
I am positive that I do in fact have the correct key, and I have performed this operation using the same program 30+ times on other machines without problems. If anyone can possibly help me out, I would really appreciate it. I also tried to enter the key into the windows activation window that allows ytou to enter a new key, but with no luck.
