    I have three computers that either was activated by RemoveWAT or DAZ Loader.

    Is there any way to tell what method was used?


    on another note, I cannot get either Daz Loader or RemoveWAT to fix a windows 7 install on MS Virtual 2007.
    Anyone else heard of this?


    Thanks for any help provided

    Run in admin CMD:

    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    the hacktivated one by RemoveWAT should get deactivated, if it repairs the tampered files even partially. If it fails completely you can be also sure.

    NOTE: RemoveWAT is useless broken crap. Better delete it and never ever use again. The Loader thread is full of complaints about broken activations.

    that will deactivate it correct?

    I am not wanting to do that just figure out what was used.

    What is the best way to activate now that does not involve BIOs mods?

    ok Thank you


    I will try to figure out this Torrent Stuff (yes i am an old man)

    I have a copy of 2.2.1 but have not been able to find a clean 2.2.2

    The mirrors in your sig apparently had a password on the zip file

    For virtual pc 2007, you would need a really old version of daz loader, perhaps from the 1.6 or 1.7 series.

    Make sure it is the real thing, not some malware loaded imposter. I have a few of these old versions, but it would take me a day or so to get them dug up.

    oldest I have is 1.9.2 if you want to try it, can UL it.
    Code:
      File: Windows Loader.exe
    CRC-32: a61b1f30
       MD4: 5ad59033500e7d46eedf06a17e9aee0e
       MD5: 101805e8a353950b96986e86a32dda78
     SHA-1: c507ad2cbcdc7525067301d751564b9c94157e27
    -ed-
    and 1.8 was hiding in another folder.


    Code:
      File: Windows Loader.exe
    CRC-32: cfcc4c40
       MD4: b50feb59f209d0d8b2c04f8a8d0b9098

    I'd wager that the 1.8 version posted by EFA11 would activate a Virtual PC 2007 guest properly. At some point with later loader versions, adding HYPER-V support started to cause troubles with virtual pc.

    Of course, running the guest under either vmware player or virtualbox would be a better choice anyhow.

    It wasn't ever fixed because Virtual PC 2007 support was dropped by Microsoft. Also both VMware Player and VirtualBox perform a lot better than VPC, so we've always recommended people to use either of them instead.
