hi Folks, im trying to setup a Windows 7 32-Bit in a VM-Ware 7.12. Last time i tried the SLIC 2.1 with the bios440.filename= it worked. But now... Windows 7 won't believ that it's activated. This is how i have done it, maybe someone will find an error. 1. installed Win7 in VM-Ware 7.12 2. shutdown win7 in VM. 3. edit .vmx file an added: bios440.filename="bios440.ROM" 4. put bios440.ROM in the very same folder as the VmWare 5. boot up win7, and added the cert, with "slmgr /ilc HP-HP-2.1.xrm-ms" 6. installed the key, slmgr /ipk Win7 Ultimate HP Key here 5 and 6 Windows told me succes, but if i open now the System Pref. i have only 26 Days left. Did VM-Ware change something on VM 7.12 or did I forget something?
