No XP Pro activation?

  rickf 15:53 27 Sep 2008

I have just installed XP PRO but can't find the Activation anywhere. Usually under system tools but not there. Could it be that it got activated automatically during installation/set up. When Xp was installing I went away to amke a cup of tea. Any info much apprecaited.

BTW, updates have downloaded automatically and installed. Is this further evidence that it was activated w/o my knowing during the XP installation process?

Start, Run, enter

oobe/msoobe /a

and press Enter. If Windows is activated you will get a message to that effect otherwise you will be prompted to activate.

Thanks Vog. Will go and do that.

it's already activated. Must have done it by itself during the installation when I was away from my desktop.
Thanks again
