    Default Activation key

    It could me doing something very silly. I have just replaced my hard drive, I re-named the drive to the same name as previous C: drive.
    I installed my new XP Proessional Operating System and all other stuff and finally re-installed A5V6 and latest patch. When I now try to enter my 16 digit Activation Key, the OK button on the Enter Activation Key Dialog box is greyed out making it impossible to enter the key. Any ideas please

    Hi David,

    The 16 digit sequence is your license number, not the activation key. The activation key is based on your computer name and is a string of two digit numbers about 40+ characters in hex format.

    He couldn't have installed the new XP unless he entered the 16 digit Windows license number, so he must be talking about the activation key for alpha not Windows XP.

    David:
    This seems like an alpha licensing/copy right issue not an XP issue. I am sure it is meant so that people do not go around copying alpha to any number of machines without more users permits. In your case obviousely that is not your intention.

    You might want to contact alpha for further guidance.

    Hi Gabe,

    David is up and running. He and I conversed via email.

    Just for Reference, Windows XP has a 25 digit license number.
    Alpha 5 has a 16 digit license number and an activation key. Both are needed.

    Thanks,

    Dan
