What works

Activation, it returns a code with modifications to the registry and some DLLOverrides. Works as intended.

What does not

Using cracks, they have been tested and do fail as they rely on OS-specific weaknesses not found in Wine (as Wine isn't an OS). Only legitimate windows licence info with legitimate Microsoft DLLs appear to work.


What was not tested

Windows 2000/2003/Vista/2008 licence.

Only XP Home and Professional OEM licences have been tested.
