    Hi guys, hope you're all well. I am trying to do something a little different today, I want to try to purposely trigger the WGA non-genuine tripwire. It looks a bit like this:

    I know it's odd, but is there a registry entry or a key or something I can use to literally manually trigger this state.
    Thanks for all your help!

    Yes, use a blacklisted key, Retail or VLK will do:D

    There is an infamous key that starts with FCKGW. If you google, you will find it, and it is a sure blacklist.

    FCKGW must be standing for FCKGWing

    Those FCKGWing pirates of Windows XP are forcing us to pass on the costs to our legitimate, paying customers.

    :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I still have the files kicking around at the time when first leaked it did not even come as an ISO :D and as you also know that is not the only VLK key to get blacklisted nowadays :p
