    Post Quick favour from any XP pro owners

    Could any owners of an up to date XP Professional (32bit) system do me a quick favour and possibly post their dxdiag information (and tell me if they have a retail/OEM/other install)? I'm trying to help someone (not work related) with their system and I'm not up with the versions of Pro that it reports (_rc1, _gdr etc.)

    Thanks!

    Re: Quick favour from any XP pro owners

    Could you try saving the text file and looking for the full version info? For eg:

    Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254)

    The problem person has

    Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) (2600.xpsp_sp2_rc1.040311-2315)

    which looks odd to me.

    Thats an install of the non final service pack 2 that was on MSDN / torrent sites before it went final (hence the RC bit = release candidate)

    edit - an up to date install, regardless of key type (VLK, Retail, OEM ect) should show 070227-XXXX AFAIK

    Looks to me as though he's got a system with the Release Candidate of SP2 installed on it.

    Anyhow, mine reads: Operating System: Windows XP Professional (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 2 (2600.xpsp_sp2_gdr.070227-2254)

    Try that tool as well, it's useful in figuring out what license key and the like has been installed on your system
