When I run the validation program on my genuine Win2k system, I get the
message saying a validation code couldn't be found because of technical
difficulties or because I'm running an unsupported operating system.
When using IE and thus the ActiveX control there is no problem and my
Windows is recognized as genuine.
Looks to me the standalone validation program is seriously broken....
