If you are using a legal licenced copy of xp then you can activate it over the phone by just following the prompts.

If on the other hand you have no licence key, i suggest you look for advice elsewhere as these activities are illegal.

Need to activate windows xp. dont have a coa # on computer.


Did this come on a WinXP disc, or did Windows come preinstalled on the computer? If you lost the CD Key, you're going to have to call Microsoft tech support to get a key to activate it.

I need an "activation code" from Corel to complete the installation


Perhaps your camera only comes with a trial or limited edition of the software. Try proceeding without the activation code and/or read through the camera's documentation very carefully.
