I have my own legal XP VLK key. However, I misplaced my CD, and I downloaded a random ISO from the internet. Is there any to check if its VLK?

Install it, when you get to the enter product key, its asked for a RETAIL or OEM or VLK code.

(Try this in VMWare).

But this is discussing warez.

Actually, IMO, it is not because I own a legal key. However, if someone must, lock it.

There is some file on the CD you can check (change) to ensure it's a VLK version, , can't remember the name or what to check for, but the articles on the net were in the context of changing what key windows accepts.

Isn't it setupp.ini? If the PID has 640 in it, its VLK iirc

In SETUPP.INI, for my VLK discs I use "55274270". Seems to be more up-to-date with what Microsoft's pressing on their CDs.

The following resource is invaluable when fooling around with Microsoft Product IDs:
