Dear All,

I'm experiencing the

        "A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the
        license for this computer. Error code: 0x800703e6." bug.

I'm using a site-licensed version of XP-pro (which identifies itself as build 2600), and the most recent 2004-11-22_23 snapshot of qemu. I managed to successfully make it install, and it will boot happily, but only in safe mode with no networking.

I just thought you might like to know the results of my research: namely that ALL of the following workarounds FAIL:

1) http://www.talkroot.com/archive/topic/18578-1.html
        Start/run regsvr32 regwizc.dll
        Then start/run regsvr32 licdll.dll


3)Created normal and limited users (while in safe mode). These also fail in normal mode.

The commands they specify don't actually work, (the recovery-mode doesn't like the %), but doing what they MEAN, rather than what they say, manages to succesfully restore exact copies of the former files.

It doesn't fix the problem.

Anyway, hopefully this will save someone else an hour of wasted googling and experiments.

As for Product Activation, it just makes me grateful for Linux!

Best wishes
