How to reset your Serial Number in Windows XP

27 posts in this topic

1. Run regedit and go to: HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\Current Version\WPAEvents

on the right double click on "OOBEtimer" and change at least one digit of this value to deactivate windows.

2. Choose run from start menu and type in this command:

%systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a

to get the activation screen and go to the second option which is activate by phone.

3. In the new screen choose the option to change product key, and type in the new product key (Corporate one only).

4. Close that window, reboot your system and enter the command in step 2 for the second time to verify your activation , you should see "windows is already activated".

Stupid question. Why would you want to reset the serial number in the first place?

Just curious......... :)

is there a similar tweak to make the TRIAL versions of WindowsXP (120/180 day trial) and Windows 2003 Server (180 days trial) make them

full version or non-trial limited?

This also works for resetting your cd key on a Windows XP w/SP1 computer:

' 
' WMI Script - ChangeVLKey.vbs
'
' This script changes the product key on the computer
'
'***************************************************************************

ON ERROR RESUME NEXT


if Wscript.arguments.count<1 then
  Wscript.echo "Script can't run without VolumeProductKey argument"
  Wscript.echo "Correct usage: Cscript ChangeVLKey.vbs ABCDE-FGHIJ-KLMNO-PRSTU-WYQZX"
  Wscript.quit
end if

Dim VOL_PROD_KEY
VOL_PROD_KEY = Wscript.arguments.Item(0)
VOL_PROD_KEY = Replace(VOL_PROD_KEY,"-","") 'remove hyphens if any

for each Obj in GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}").InstancesOf ("win32_WindowsProductActivation")

  result = Obj.SetProductKey (VOL_PROD_KEY)

  if err <> 0 then
     WScript.Echo Err.Description, "0x" & Hex(Err.Number)
     Err.Clear
  end if

Next

This will reset your cd key on a Windows XP Computer WITHOUT SP1

' 
' WMI Script - ChangeVLKey.vbs
'

if Wscript.arguments.count<1 then

  Wscript.quit
end if

Dim VOL_PROD_KEY
VOL_PROD_KEY = Wscript.arguments.Item(0)
VOL_PROD_KEY = Replace(VOL_PROD_KEY,"-","") 'remove hyphens if any
Dim WshShell
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents\OOBETimer" 'delete OOBETimer registry value
for each Obj in GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}").InstancesOf ("win32_WindowsProductActivation")

  result = Obj.SetProductKey (VOL_PROD_KEY)

  if err <> 0 then
     WScript.Echo Err.Description, "0x" & Hex(Err.Number)
     Err.Clear
  end if
