  • Possible Activation fix for XP

    A user reported that he overcame the problem of an activation that wouldn't stick. (Success message, but trial status still showed.)

    Download SubInACL here:

    He then used a .cmd file with the following script:

    Code:
    cd /d "%ProgramFiles%\Windows Resource Kits\Tools"
    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CURRENT_USER /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subkeyreg HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    subinacl /subdirectories %SystemDrive%\ /grant=administrators=f /grant=system=f
    I'm not sure the /subdirectories command is needed or wise. I'd like to test to see which of the registry commands actually fix the problem.
