    Hi:

    I've been using the Remove WAT software on my windows 7 enterprise 64 bit and all has been working fine. I've been updating stuff without problems.

    Today I got this update which seem to concern security issues and am not sure if is one of those hidden patches to set me back on non genuine again.

    Before I download this can someone tell me if they have already downloaded this on a windows 7 running with Remove WAT help and if there was problems or not afterwards?

    Thanks

    Yes silverlight updates are always dangerous to your activation status.... Never update silverlight!

    I highly doubt a Silverlight update is gonna make you non genuine.

    There'd likely be a flood of posts about it if it did, I'd just update it.

    Also if I may ask why are you running the Enterprise edition of Windows 7, why not download Ultimate from one of the stickies & use Daz's act*vation method, there'd be a lot less worrying about updates.

    eeeh... even with /sarcasm tag people (you) dont get it :) figure it out why this post have so little number of replys even tho im sure 90% of people reading this forum knows answer to this question....

    edit: oh well ill stop being a b* :) no silverlight update will NEVER influence your activation unless MS will seriously screw something up. And if this happens it will most likely also happen for all "legit" retail users... so ye must be screwup on a scale that maybe happens once every few years (like some old XP update that where giving blue screens to about 10% of users on boot).

    Oh thanks for the replies, I'm a noob when it come to windows updates.
    I donloaded the enterprize version from windows but I heard that Ultimate and Enterprize are the same or basically the same so I didn't feel that I needed to scrap my enterprize version and re install with ultimate.

    I tried one time the loader but one day went bust, so that is why I went for the remove WAT and it has been great for a very long time now.

    No problem ;) & whatever works for ya, but BTW Daz's method has had a lot of updates recently that has improved compatibility a lot, so what didn't work for you then may work now but it's your call.

    Enterprise and Ultimate they are similar, but the truth is Enterprise its VL and Ultimate not, With Enterprise you have to activate it every 180 Days (6 Months) And Ultimate Activates Forever... thats the difference.... if I am mistaken correct me...;)

    Activation Methods by W7 Edition:

    Windows 7 Enterprise - Remove WAT / IR4 / KMS Emulator (ZWT Activator / W.O.A.T. / Other KMS Emulators)
    Windows 7 Ultimate - Bios Mod / DAZ Loader / Remove WAT / Chew 7 / W.O.A.T. (if Slic 2.1 is present on Bios) / IR4

    I think I perhaps faced a different problem with the recent Silverlight update (from 4.0.50524 to 4.0.50826 on 31/1st). After updating, IE removed all my favourites. Thought of it not as a problem, till I tried to import them from a html file. Did not do this at all. This was never a problem before. I usually keep my bookmarks as a html file and import them in each browser for uniformity.

    The solution was to roll back to my pre-update image, and hide the silverlight update. I think even a recent hotfix (which is supposed to prevent freezing in windows 7 and only available thru request) is also problematic.

    I am still running RemoveWAT here on this rig, and the Silverlight update worked fine with no issues (although I don't use IE - Opera here).

    I want to get around to completely reinstalling Windows on this machine from scratch with DAZ sometime ( I just need to find two of three days with no work or family commitments). How well does DAZ work on custom-built PCs? DAZ worked fine on my custom-built HTPC with gigabyte mobo, but I just don't want to risk it for this rig yet when RemoveWAT is working fine. Perhaps around the New Year's holiday...

    Daz has always worked for me on my custom made PC, if by that you mean buying the hardware separately rather than all in a box as a branded PC. In fact, I would say, custom made PCs are perfect for Daz. No hidden stuff anywhere.

    No sure why are you still discussing this silly question... its almost like asking "will updating adobe flash, remove my activation". Answer, yes it can happen if adobe flash installer does it on purpose.

    The loader I've tried before was not DAZ but something else which worked until an update screwed it up.

    After that I was searching on the net and end up on this very site and read the topic about the remove WAT. So far so good, but I notice that people seem more prone to DAZ then to Remove WAT. I would say Remove WAT is better because it removes the all authentication stuff it's like having a door but without locker, but again I may be wrong.
