RegKey: To get support extended for Win XP

Post by Pablo César » Tue Sep 02, 2014 10:56 pm

Windows 8.1 overtakes Windows 8 worldwide, as Windows XP 'refuses to die'

Registry hack enables continued updates for Windows XP

A single registry setting makes Windows Update think your XP system is Windows XP POSReady, which will receive updates for another five years.

To apply the hack, create a text file with a .reg extension and the contents below:

Code: Select all

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\WPA\PosReady]
"Installed"=dword:00000001

Gracias Pablo César por la información :)

Tengo una máquina que trabaja con winXP y en verdad es una maravilla de versión de windows, ya que hace lo mismo y a la misma velocidad que tengo con win7 :)

Así se que por lo menos es bueno conservar las máquinas en winXP y no desecharla!!! :D :D :D

Saludos
