Technet:

I just saw that you had put this post, and one more as well, out there. I think what is happening is that when you post the problem, it's not being connected to the original issue, or the problem you may be looking at when you post your comment/question.

I think that, when you posed this question, you were likely looking at one of the posts where a "solution" (one or more) was given that indicated certain codes which could be used to circumvent the legally required licensing of copyrighted software. Please be aware that the posting of these codes by whoever did it, as well as using those codes to activate, avoid activation, or otherwise install/use software that has not been purchased, is illegal and is a violation of law. Copyright infringement of this type carries heavy potential penalties, including but not limited to fines that could be $100,000 or more per instance, and imprisonment as well! Therefore, even if the code(s) do work, it is not something I would attempt to do.

The "solution" posted above doesn't have anything to do with this, obviously, but I also don't think it relates to the problems you have been experiencing. As I responded to two of your posted problems, and I believe helped you to get to a reasonable (and legal!) solution, I am probably more familiar with the set of challenges you faced. So, I would like to help you understand how the communication here works most effectively - it has taken me some time to work it out as well!

(This assumes that you are coming to FixYa from the web page straight off, instead of a link from their email to you. If you come from an email link, where they will update you when there is a solution posted or other comment on your posting, you will be taken straight to that issue.)

When you come to FixYa and sign on, go to your profile (My Profile, at the top right of the screen). This will bring up a page which displays all of your posted problems and solutions. Then you can click directly into a posted issue to see the activity, any solutions or other comments posted, and you can also set the rating that way. I hope this isn't redundant, as you have set ratings on several of my posts, but I am not sure if you got there from the main page or from e-mail. If it is, please accept my apology. At any rate, if you have further information, questions, feedback, etc., related to the post that is already there, it is usually most effective to continue from within the same original post - add a new comment and continue the discussion in that same place.

Alternatively, if this doesn't seem to work, or if something else comes up and you want to deal with a particular expert who has familiarity with situations you have encountered, you can click directly on the Ask Me under the icon beside the expert's name. The same Ask Me function should show on the right side of the screen on your profile page in your experts listing. This will direct the question to that expert who is already familiar with your situation, so you won't end up with irrelevant information such as the above.

Sorry for the long explanation, especially if these are things you are already aware of, I just thought it might help you to obtain more relevant answers or help in a more expeditious fashion.

Thanks for your consideration, and for rating FixYa! Pleas let me know if there is anything else I can do for you!

How do i download the next upgrade after windows XP professional for free?


Why up grade if XP Pro is working fine???????? The only time to up grade is when your existing OS is not compatible with some program you wish to run. Other than that you should stay with XP.

If you have to "upgrade" your best bet is Win 7 but that is a clean install, not an upgrade. Stay away from Vista, Win 8.1, 10 lest you have horrific issues with convenience, compatibility and/or drivers.

Hi there, i am new to this site & hope you can help, i have been given windows xp pro + service pack 2 but have no installation code to install whith, i have tryd the unnatended folder but the pro key...


The 25 digit code actually comes with the cd and is not on the cd but is a yellow label that was in the box when it was purchased.
I would go back to the person who gave it to you and ask them for that label. My guess is the disk came with a computer that has the windows sticker on the side and that is why you do not have the license number.
Unfortunately the only way to get a legal license is to buy it.

Un-Install XP PRO Upgrade


When you installed the upgrade, if you chose not to save the needed files for later uninstalling, you may not be able to uninstall. Check the Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. If the upgrade is listed, removing the upgrade should put you back to where you started. If not, you would have to do a full system restore from a full system backup (which hopefully you have), or backup your data files and then do a clean installation of the prior OS.

Uninstall WIN XP PRO UPGRADE


Unfortunately you cannot "Uninstall an Upgrade" - Do you refer "Upgrade to SP2/ SP3 or WIN98 or WIN2000 to WIN XP? Please clarify? Regardless - you will have to reformat your PC and purchase a new license key as you have used the one on another PC or you should void the license on that PC and use it on the original PC.
In short unless you do not use the license key or purchase a new one, your PC will not log-in after 30 days and you will then have to activate again using telephonic assitance (if you modem and internet connection were no configured before the end of you activation period. There is now Un-install function. Sorry.
