  1. Hi

    I've installed a commercial copy of 2003 Enterprise over a 2003 enterprise
    activated trial version. After logon the system says that I must
    activate the windows. I've clicked yes and the activator says that is
    already activated and logs me off !
    Help ...

    I had the exactly same problem.

    Since can't get it work, I format the disk and clean install from commercial
    copy. This had caused me lotsa time and effort to reconfigure everything.

  3. try this :

    1.)start Windows in safe mode without !!!!! network

    2.) login as admin and open regedit

    3.) delete HKLM\SYSTEM\WPA (folder)


    5.) delete file %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\WPA.BAK and WPA.DBL

    restart system ... and belive in what you did.

    NOTE : Windows will re-create this registry strings , keys and files (new

    Hope this help

  4. Hi

    This cannot be done (I've tried but the Windows keeps these keys opened I do
    not allow me delete it) I 've opened with a XP boot using the
    CD that comes with XP Embedded, removed the keys and the file but do not
    work too !

    I resolved the issue installing a VLK version that we have in our MSDN
    subscription and it worked !
