After the key has been activated, it can’t be used on another workstation unless you’re using a Volume-Licensed version of Windows XP.That means each Windows XP workstation in your organization has a different product key.Hopefully, travistee, you'll choose to burn the bastards.Actually it was MS that told me it was activated 5 times already, so I guess that means they know about it.Validating is done on the fly and it doesn't matter how many times it has validated.The fact that it has validated makes it a genuine copy of windows.Naturally, you don’t want to do that because you already have a copy of XP—you’re just missing the valid key that goes with your workstation.
