    I just set up a virtual PC with XP pro sp2. I am running XP pro sp2 on the
    physical computer as well. The physical machine has an XP license (OEM via
    Dell) and the virtual PC has its own license (MSDN). When I try to activate
    the virtual PC, I get a very long delay followed by a failure with message
    number 32781. Any ideas? The network connectivity of the virtual pc is fine.

  2. Hi,

    Although this should not happen, phone activation may be the best choice at
    getting the VM activated
