Hello Scott

Trying to download... http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/de ... en&id=6256

Unfortunalty I am unable to download that patch as I cannot complete the Genuine Windows Validation system, on that above page I click continue to validate, and continue again and just end up dumped at http://www.microsoft.com/uk/windows/ with no futher mention of validation, untill I try to download of course!

Now I know that treating Microsoft emplyess to vicious and creul treatment is consided the wrong thing to do, so wondered if a technical soloution is in order?!

It is plain VHP32 with SP2 no other updates as of yet.

I can't seem to find a "manual" way of validating and searches either take me dead or "landing paged" links or of course hacks cracks and piracy!

Hmm maybe easier just to pirate it! (joke!)

**Should point out I can get it via the updates applet, but I want to download to file**

It downloads fine for me using either FireFox or IE. When using FireFox, you will be directed to download and run a validation tool called GenuineCheck.exe, which will give you a validation code to enter to enable the download. When using IE, the validation will take place using an automated ActiveX application. In either case once validated, the download works fine.

Bottom line: If you are trying to download the file on a system that won't validate, then merely download it on another system that will, then copy it to the invalid system. Of course you should really consider reloading the invalid system to make it valid as well. <g> Scott.

I promise it is a valid system!

This is a brand new install today!

It's as if the ActiveX control just fails to load, I can download it on another system, but of course want the Internet Explorer to work properly!

I see that Firefox uses Genuinue Check.exe but how does one manualy install Genuine Windows Validation for IE?

I've never seen any problems like that on a clean reload from scratch. Make sure the system is fully activated (not in trial mode), if that doesn't help then I'd just run the install over. Scott.
