    hi,

    i cant seem to locate the oem cert xrm-ms file on a new hp laptop. it came with win 7 home prem 64-bit installed and i am trying to locate the cert manually but to no avail. i have set the options to view hidden as well as protected system files.

    i do not see an oem dir under c:\windows\system32\ ...so then i tried to locate the tokens.dat file and was hoping to extract the cert but i cant seem to find the tokens.dat file either...

    i did a search for *.xrm-ms files and there were a ton of files that popped up but none along the lines of oem-cert.xrm-ms or hp.xrm-ms etc...

    any help/direction would be much appreciated. thank you.

    All you have to do is backup token and key with thid tool Paymyrent Token restore...and restore when needed with the same tool. The tool does everything automatically for you.
