    I paid for this Home Premium Win7x64, I get all updates and have no problems but when I run the latest WGA tool it doesn't say "genuine", an older version of the WGAtool does say "Genuine" what could be causing this? Or does the validation code=0 mean genuine in this newest WGA tool ? It passes the geniune validation test and I can downlowd MSE, MS Live, etc.

    I once tried to make something simular as IR4 in vb.net, but stopped working on it cause there are enough apps. There I used wmi to see the activation status. When calling that wmi function it returns a number.
    2 means windows is in grace period
    1 means activated/genuine
    5 or 0 means not activated and not in grace, which is non-genuine

    So if the validation code is the same number as what I used than it's indeed non-genuine.
    But to be sure you can download a program called "wmi explorer", fire it up (can take a while). Then select SoftwareLicensingProduct in the upper part, in the instances you can see several times "Windows(R) 7, Home Premium edition", select those one at a time. For 1 of those the licensestatus in the propperties plane should be 1, if that's the case you're genuine.
