Windows 2003 antiWPA


AntiWPA related


Win2k3 x64 R2 Suddenly 7 days left.
by Garbz on Tue Aug 26, 2008

I'm running Win2k3 x64 R2 on a core2duo system, and around about 3 weeks ago I realised I had not yet activated, did a bit of playing with it, and activation disappeared. Like a few other posters here I am getting a 7 days left for activation message.
But unlike some of the other posters:
- I am already running 3.4.7
Reinstalling did nothing other than produce an error "Access is denied"
tied with the registry part given that the hive had already been
previously imported.
- System Info tool says nothing about activation in the summary.
- Trying to start the activation process produces nothing. The activation window never appears
-running tasklist /m /fi "Modules wq antiwpa.dll" shows the antiwpa.dll
module is present and linked with the process winlogon.exe
I don't have ideas. I mean chances are that in 7 days this will blow over and nothing will happen, but the other chances are in 7 days it'll be time for a format.

hi Garbz,
i have the same problem. i reinstall my win xp pro sp2 x64 for 2 weeks and installed the antiwpa 3.4.7.
Yesterday, windows told me to activate it. i rebooted my system and entered the safe-mode as admin.
I tried to uninstall the antiwpa that i can reinstall it. i also get a
message with "Access is denied". so i opened regedit and try to change the "OOBETimer" value manually. but windows denied the access.
NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents so i used the right mouse-button on
"WPAEvents" and change the rights of the admin to full access. now i
could change the value. after i reinstalled the antiwpa patch, i tried
to check if it works correct. i used the command
"%systemroot%\system32\oobe\msoobe.exe /a" but the activation window won't be opened. If i change the "OOBETimer" i can view the window to set the activation, but i'm not able after patching to open it.
i think there's a problem with the patch.
i have solved the problem. i found another activation file in the internet and replace the "" with the downloaded. now the system is activated and it's also possible to check it with "oobe\msoobe.exe /a".

It is fixed 
To install over the old:
1) Change permissions of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\WPAEvents with Regedit to full control for
2) Then run the install.cmd to install new.

- Login as Administrator 

- Create a file called "RunAntiWPA.cmd", containing 
Code: Select all
regsvr32 /s antiwpa.dll
- save it to C:\ (or wherever you want) 
- Open the registry (Start-Run-regedit) 
- Browse to HKLM Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run 
- Highlight Run and right click --> New --> String Value 
- Make the value RegAntiWPA, then right click on the value you just created and click "Modify". 
-Enter the value data c:\RunAntiWPA.cmd (or that you've chosen) 
- Click OK and close regedit and reboot.
