I have a client with three Windows XP Pro computers:
These are the names of the computers not what they are. All 3 are running Windows XP Pro. The server and laptop can't get windows updates because it is failing the Genuine Windows Validation check. The computers are usable, no other signs that there is a problem.
The previous tech who setup his LAN is no where to be found. I checked the Keycodes on the Server and Desktop and they are both different. Remember the Desktop is OK and is up to date with windows patches.
I ran :
and both ran successfully, but I am still getting the error when I am trying to run windows updates.
How can I find of if indeed these licenses are bogus and do I have to purchase new OEM keycodes for windows XP Pro to resolve the issues or is there another way around this?
thanks in advance.
