> Windows Product Key: *****-*****-3R89F-D2KXW-VPK3J

Where did you obtain the CD-ROM that you used to install Windows,
using that Product Key?
A "VLK' is a "volume license key" -- when some organization purchases a specific number
of licenses to install Windows XP, Microsoft issues a "volume" license-key,
so that all (up to the number of licenses they purchased) computers in that organization
can use the _same_ license-key.
If Microsoft detects that the product-key is being used *OUTSIDE* of that specific organization,
then Microsoft will *BLOCK* all attempts to "activate" Windows that cite that product-key.
I did a Google-search for '3R89F-D2KXW-VPK3J' and Google reported 37 THOUSAND web-pages that contain that string. That is a *DEFINITE* sign that the VLK has been "leaked" onto the Internet.
So, you are trying to use a "non-genuine" copy of Microsoft Windows XP.
Thus, you are a "SOFTWARE PIRATE".
Purchase a *GENUINE* copy of Windows XP (or Vista or 7) and install it,
and throw away your "pirated" copy of Windows.
You cannot upgrade (as you say load ) from Windows XP to Windows XP. You simply cannot do this and there is no point in doing it as I explain. You can upgrade Windows XP to Windows Vista easily. In the case that you want to keep Windows XP and want to enjoy better security and new features than what you do is you go to "My computer" icon and right click it and then take properties of it. The new page that will open you carefully check for these SP1(Service Pack 1), SP2 (Service Pack 2) or likewise SP3. If you do not find any (SP)Service Packs than according to your requirement you can download and install SP1 or SP2. Caution: The third level service Pack for Windows XP is SP3. Microsoft has declared that it is not for everyone. I strongly discourage you to install SP3 unless you have a strong requirement for it. After that you can put your XP on normal regular updates from Microsoft.
When it comes tp a production environment, the owners are right. Productity is the most important. Check the website support for Turbocad v9 for the patch. If none Windows Xp should be loaded.
