Windows 7: Oracle's Virtual Box - Granted only 180 days to use my XP SP2 CD. Why?

11 Jun 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bits

It might have been that you could manage it earlier without getting caught but as the time goes by the methods used by software companies in general and Microsoft in particular to find and reveal activation exploits and multiple activations with one key get better and better.

Exactly what is happening now.
In my case, it always worked before - two virtual machines on the same machine, my laptop.
Thanks, Kari.

Your VMware XP system should still be OK. If not, phone activation should still work.
Hi jimbo45,

I'm sure a phone activation will do.

First, I will try what I described to derekimo:
"...I will try the other way around: will remove VMWare, install VBOX and then VMWare again, to see if the same happens now with VMware." on the same machine, as I always did.
