Activation Status: Activation Pending (30 days remaining)??

Logon onto a Limited User Account->
On System Information:
It displays the following on "System Summary" after updated
with Windows XP SP1.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Activation Status: Activation Pending (30 days remaining)
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Is that Windows XP with updated to Windows XP SP1 need to
re-activate???

Please note the Windows XP computer has not changed any
hardwares.

Logon onto an Administrator User Account->
On system Information:
It DOES NOT DISPLAY the following on "System Summary" after
updated with Windows XP SP1.

Activation Status: Activation Pending (30 days remaining)
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Why?

Start->Run, "%windir%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a"

That will give you the definitive answer.

what will the following do to my computer if I run it?
start->Run, "%windir%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a"

I am not going to run it if I don't understand what it
will do to my computer.

A window will open showing you the activation status of your copy of Win XP
and nothing else.

I truly agree with your decision, and your reply is correct, . The
"%windir%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a" even though it is not from the
original poster will bring up your activation status, and nothing else.

It is necessary to have windows activated if you are going to use it
beyond 30 days.  Either what David said or the method I just posted -
which ought to work more easily.
His command brings up that same activation wizard.

It should not need to be activated again, but something else may have
damaged the registry record of when it was done.  I would log on as an
Admin user, get on the net and then use the Start - All Programs -
Accessories - System tools - Activate Windows

If you do not trust answers you receive in this newsgroup, why post questions?
If the first response is suspect, then any responses explaining it are also
suspect.

Your caution is wise, but in this case the command is innocuous.
It does nothing to your computer. It just reports on whether XP
has been activated or not.

1.XP activation 30 Days Remaining for users only?

I have installed WXP using Volume Licence media (inc SP1) and the

install run MSINFO32 as an administrator and all is fine, create a
user and the same screen says "Product Activation : Pending 30 Days
Remaining"!!!

Does anyone know why this happens?
