In the newer Windows NT based operating systems, the setupreg.hiv file is used to set expiration and date limits to the operating system - correct me if I'm wrong. I would like to know how to modify the ones in the :beta: versions of Windows to remove any limits that apply to the :beta: OS.

Thanks in advance,
coolsites100 :D :D

You would have an activation problem only on Microsoft Windows XP or higher. Otherwise, no activation is required.

I am trying to install Microsoft Whistler Beta 1 (Windows XP Beta 1), and it is allowing me a maximum of 180 days of use. I just want to know how to remove that limitation.

All builds of Microsoft Windows XP prior to build 2419 don't have Windows Product Activation, so there will be no activation problems on Whistler Beta 1.

He's not asking about killing activation form setupreg.hiv ._>
He's asking about removing the timebomb from setupreg.hiv.

Mount setupreg.hiv into HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, go to <hive>\ControlSet001\services\setupdd, and null out all of the data in the default value in that key iirc.

setupreg.hiv is the correct way

re-add it to ISO and you have debombed OS :)

I would actually like to make the actual CD install without the timebomb. But, if I have to, I will use TweakNT.

This seems to have worked for me. Thank you for your help!
