    Hi, :(

    i have problems removing watermark for W8 pro build 9600.
    It seems like i cant find patched files to replace original ones.
    can you please provide me with correct files for this version.

    if there are any edited files, will it also work on build 9200 ?

    many thanks

    Just Activate your OS, and Watermark will gone...

    If u have activated OS, try to check your registry
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
    "DisplayVersion"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "PaintDesktopVersion"=dword:00000000

    Patching system files is always last resort. You can sign driver files yourself using tools from windows DDK, and install private certificate into win cert store.

    thanks

    i am not familiar to windows ddk and installing private certificate.
    what i know in order to run digitally signed drivers without workarounds you need to pay Microsoft for that. That is why i am looking for a way to remove watermark.

    now i have tried a new patch and it almost seemed to work
    deleted two lines of watermark
    still have '' TEST MODE '' in there

    any idea ?
