    M$ has long closed the retail data.dat swap trick to get your copy of Windows Pro activated.
    If that is how you are trying to activate your copy of Pro WMC right now, you can forget about it. :(

    Dear M$,

    i have clean and activated images of W8 in my HD, took with Acronis (or Macrium or Ghost or Paragon) in half October.
    What do you think to do to stop my wonderful and running cracked W8? :cool2:
