Hey For those who wanna get around activating Longhorn then this is your lucky day!

http://www.mediafire.com/?ntdygoml3xz

I haven't tested them but people on JoeJoe said it worked

Boot into safe mode and copy this to System32

Edit: Sorry about not citing the JoeJoe thread
Edit: Hounsell has posted a better link it also has 5048 :) http://windowsserenity.co.uk/library/patches/activation/




MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR logonui.exe rename to logonui.backup [/u] :D

It's the download posted here, in this thread at joejoe.
Contains patched logonui.exe's for every pre-reset build of Longhorn.
He really should have cited the Joejoe.org thread he got it from...

I wonder, in all the time's you've used the word "warez" do you actually know what it means?

Widely used to denote cracked or pirate versions of commercial software. In other words, illegal pirated software.

Interperate that however you want...

What I mean is, I thought it goes completely against the forum rules to distribute cracks/workarounds for things. I know it is for the Longhorn alphas, but....

Look at: http://www.betaarchive.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5805 to see what I mean.

It would be different if we were trying to distribute all the tool's necessary to run a given Beta build for an infinite period of time, but we do not, that would be why TweakNT is not allowed.
And, I don't know about you, but I personally don't use Beta/Alpha builds of Windows, as a substitute for their commercial equivalent's.
These aren't crack's for an RTM build, such as Vista or Xp, and when the timebomb is taken into account, these are barely even crack's.

I only use betas/alphas of things like Longhorn/Whistler in VPC 2007.

BTW, I know this isn't my post, but to avoid confusion, I think that this topic should be renamed to patched winlogon.exe, instead of patched logonui.exe by one of the mods. Its OK if you disagree, just a suggestion to help people who are less experienced.

yes these patches work, i uploaded them to my mediafire account, they were made by someone else, all i did was .RAR em all together for all the leaked Longhorn builds and make them avaiable in one place!

like hounsell said you patch the winlogon.exe, be sure to save you old one to sumthin like winlogon.crap and replace it! reboot and done and done!

good to go!

i am confirming that the 4074 one actually works... i havnt had any problems yet...

for those of you with a copy of vmware worksatation 6.xxxxx??? you need to make a blank floppy image, and copy the files from your "desktop" to the "floppy" or just put them into a seperate folder on you "hard disk" to run them

Come again?
Wouldn't it be a little more pratical to just drag/drop the file's, into the Vmware window...
And no, you wont have any problems, that is until the timebomb goes off...

Aparently you do not. Cracks and keygens are also considered to be warez, that is exactly what this is. It has been altered from the original to bypass the activation for a product or service and is therefore warez and illegal in most backwards thinking countries. Warez is not just illegal copies of software it is also anything that can be used to use software illegaly.

Oh, I'm sorry, the word we were looking for was commercial...
If the end result of him having a patched winlogon.exe, is that he does not buy Vista, or Xp, then yes, it is warez.

Product activation is a method of copy protection. Circumventing copy protection is illegal as are the tools used to achieve that. Cracks and keygens are those tools (as is reverse engineering) and are also technically illegal. IF BA would not allow the posting of keygens or cracks then by the same reasoning this should also not be allowed as it does exactly the same thing. Whether or not he buys anything is irrelevant, it is still warez and he's still making it available. I don't personally care, I'm just arguing semantics.

I don't believe it is warez, but what difference does it make wether it is warez or not.
If it is agianst the forum rules, it will removed.
And I don't see how us arguing semantics is beneficial to anyone, in anyway...

I tried using the patched winlogon.exe for Windows Longhorn Build 4051, and after replacing it, it wouldn't let me go to the logon screen anymore, it just froze at startup saying ''Waiting for terminal services''.

^^ yeah i agree dude, not to mention why would people come to a community such as this to get builds and not be able to get them working? all the patch is doing is helping you get your build working....

no need to complain about it...we are @ "BETA archive" for crying out loud...:P funny you never questioned it being warez over at joejoe.org squidward? are you just asking questions for the sake of asking or this there a point to all of this?

*in the end you can either use the patches or not, no need in creating an issue over it..

I do know that at JoeJoe you seem to be very, very strict about warez, and I know it is the same here as well.

Actually, I'd also like to throw in the original link on Joejoe, that was changed because it included a 5048 crack, which is against their warez policy.

Since it's not like that here:

:D Thankyou for that Hounsell! I have been looking for a patched winlogon.exe for Build 5048 for ages! I meant to say as well, I know obviously if you had a patched winlogon.exe for XP, NOT the Whistler builds that would be warez. :wink:

But I am guessing the person who did make these ''patched'' winlogon files must of used a hex editor to remove something to do with licdll.dll? Am I right in saying?

squidward....its is a different ball game, if we were talking about Vista, but we are talking about Longhorn, which in joejoe.org's case is considered "abandonware" and links the such are ok...
the only thing we can not post links to the TweakNT..

Tom is right in the fact that the first links posted on joejoe had a patch 5048 and was later removed..so i thank you for posting it here!! ;)

Except Longhorn isn't abandonware. Microsoft has not dropped the copyright on any Longhorn version or made it public domain. Just becuase something is old and/or no longer supported doen't make it abandonware. Also abandonware is a made up name to justify copyright infringement of older software, it has no legal backing. It is still technicaly illegal to modify or distribute ANY Microsoft branded software and they still have the option to take legal action against anyone who does.
