    Hello Everyone

    I downloaded vista oemslp cert from this thread from the first post http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/5900

    and i placed it at drive c

    i went to cmd
    and typed this slmgr.vbs -ilc C:\ACER.xrm-ms
    and it said that it couldn't open it and i need to file a program to open it
    and i chose notepad to open it

    there is something pop up in notepad
    but in the cmd is still the same, i mean it supposed to be the sentence said that i successfully add my cert, isn't it?

    Can anybody help me pls?

    Thanks in advance

    thank you for fast responding
    but i still couldn't install oem cert
    it said input error: there is no script engine for file extension ".vbs"

    i couldn't add oem cert, is it because of my windows is already expired?
    or is it because i placed the acer.mrm-ms on the wrong folder. i mean do i have to replace the old one with the one that i downloaded?

    Sounds to me like you did something to break the ability to execute VBScript files. Time to reinstall windows?

    I tried the opatool, bu i still couldn't install the oem cert.
    i think because my laptop cannot execute ".vbs"

    currently, i can execute .vbs file
    but when i typed "slmgr.vbs -ilc C:\ACER.xrm-ms"
    it still didn't say that i successfully install the cert oem
    there are only option and advance options for me to choose in the cmd scene

    Yea as Myrrh said, normally you install windows then you activate it. If you have old windows that is kind of broken, I don't really know what to suggest.

    Problem is:
    slmgr -ilc
    -dlv
    and in emergency: -rearm

    all those commands are sometimes needed. If your slmgr is broken you really have no way to control activation anymore.
