i got orginal copmaq stamped win xp home... and orginal office xp pro which my mother won in the 'intel teach to the future' programme as a trainer and also publisher 2002...... that suff sux..... i had this pir8 version of office xp which even had frontpage........
biplav...it wont activate since the Windows XP given with it is usually customized for the HP laptops. So it might not work properly unless its a full installation CD. And also using a OME version which usually ships with a laptop is legally bound to that laptop and hence cannot be used on any other system.
Why is it totally acceptable to buy software that crashes when it's doing something that it's advertised as capable of, and when it's used the way it's meant to be used by a qualified operator who understands the user manual?
Would you buy a car that needed an upgrade so the brakes would work 100% of time?
@icekoolz: thanx for the info, but i think its a full installation file.
by the way, i had installed it and did some crack that would keep extending the date evryday by running in the system memory.
that way i was able to run xp home for 2 moths or so.
but once i deleted it from startup manually(havent figured it out y did i do so), all sort of probs came p.
now even if i add this back to the startup entries , still the days kept on reducing.
so i finally called off for it and installed win xp pro.
whooo. wat a relief!
