XP Activation Backup

  Quickbeam 18:33 28 Sep 2004

Can anyone remind me how to backup & restore the XP activation info please. I've had several bad crashes with sp2 which resulted in the activation wizard telling me I had exceeded the allowed No of activations! In the end I had to activate by phone so I'm Activating & PQ imaging a basic setup 'til I get this sp2 sorted.

Copy activated wpa.dbl located in the WINDOWS\system32 folder to elsewhere then copy back after reinstall.
