I have recently installed XPPRO on my home PC. Because I have not yet got internet access, I have been unable to register online and am now locked out. Any suggestions?

You should have had an option to phone MS. Can you still not do this??

Try this number first

The free phone number for UK is 0800 018 8354.

It actually tells you on the screen what to do - 'phone as Jester says.

You will need to go to the correct screen anyway, to give them the information they wll ask for.

PS - probably a voice response system, not a person (well it is in Spain)

Yep! same here DieSse, but you can use the phone options to speak to someone if you wish and they will guide you through the Activation without asking for any personal details. j.

You can also use the telephone numbers listed here to obtain volume licence product keys from the UK activation center - 0800 018 8354 and 0870 2411963.

Please have all current volume licence agreement details available before contacting the activation center. Volume licence product keys cannot be issued without valid licence agreement information
