Microsoft XP (Mode) Professional License Activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We need microsoft XP Mode for working on some old legacy applications. We have downloaded P mode from the https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8002. However, XP is not activated and is asking for Product Key.

    We have tried the product key from MSDN account and volume licensing portal but no luck. Can confirm that internet connectivity is available in the VM. 

    In case my approach is wrong could you please suggest other option of using XP mode.

    Thanks,

    Moumita

  • Hi Moumita.

    Which Windows 7 edition are you using?
    Windows XP Mode does not require a product key to be activated, since it is licensed for use with Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate or Windows 7 Enterprise; also MSDN product key codes cannot be used to activate it.

    Bye.
