    I'm gonna have to give this one a try, sounds a lot simpler than XPLIC, but so far i haven't been able to xfilz utility to work, but i am still open for new ideas

    Next machine that needs a conversion, this will be top of my list :cool:

    Thanks dobbelina, definitely two thumbs up (unfortunately there is only a one thumb icon for the post) :rolleyes:

    Vlk_to_oem

    This is an interesting tool but allow me this question:

    I have a German Corporate XP and, according to your
    directions, I have to put pidgen.dll and dpcdll.dll from
    a retail version in the same directory as VLK_TO_OEM.exe.
    Well, with pidgen.dll it is OK but dpcdll.dll is compessed
    in the Retail CD. How can I overcome this?

    Thanks for your attention.

    I updated the VLK_TO_OEM.exe file today.
    Some improvements.
    • You don't need to extract oembios.exe anymore as i made that into an
      option when executing. (to check bios string)

    • It now also checks for the presence of the 4 oembios files before running,
      or else it aborts.
      This prevents "dryruns" that could otherwise screw up your system.

    Don't worry about my toes, i wear steel boots :D
    He he, only joking.
    I like the fact that both our executables are Winrar compressed batch files,
    That way one doesn't need to worry about any hidden nasties.
    Also it gives the opportunity to see "what's cooking" so that we can learn/improve the tool.
    Copy DPCDLL.DL_ to the root of C:
    open Command Prompt and type:
    cd .. (Enter)
    cd .. (Enter)
    expand DPCDLL.DL_ C:\dpcdll.dll (Enter)

    I updated the VLK_TO_OEM.exe file today.
    Some improvements.
    • It now reads the Product Code from the Pid in your registry and adds it
      to your ProductId with the generic OEM serial.(The first 5 digits)
      This is really good, as you then retain the platform, build, and version of
      the original.Language specific etc...
      (Don't confuse this with channel id, as that is what we are changing)

    • Did some attribute changes, just in case somebody has system attributes
      on the oembios files.
      As default they shouldn't have that, but if they do, it screws things up.
      So it's fixed.

    Footnote:
    It now works so well, i'd use it on any system(My own) blindfolded :D
    Have done some extensive testing in VMware trying to screw things up
    bigtime, it's difficult, believe me.
    Even though MGADiag.exe gives me some strange readings, it ALWAYS
    passes validation without a hitch.
    I've put a lot of effort into making it compliant with all versions, and more important all languages.
    For that specific reason it now creates the regfile "on the fly", reading your
    Pid, getting as close as possible to the original settings, without interfering
    with activation.
    Now i'm gonna drink a beer or 5, so i'm "off the hook".
    Goodmorning and goodnight :eek: :)

    I updated the VLK_TO_OEM.exe file today.
    Some improvements.
    • You can now use unexpanded files copied directly from a CD.
      My utility automatically detects them and expands them before conversion.

    • Remade Yes/No into option tree.
      More logical, with added "Download files" option.

    I think i'm about done with this app now :D
