Try search activation patches via Google.

Or just try AntiWPA 3.4.6, it works for almost everything before the Windows Vista era.

I don't think he asked for activation patch in that post...
If i understood well, he asked if it is legal to activate it. And the answer is no, it isn't, it isn't even legal to install it i think, because it had timebomb set to the install and you couldn't install LH after a specified date. Changing the BIOS date is in this case... erm... cheating? Modifing the setup not to require to change the date (or in any other way) is conflicting with MSEULA. That's true that Longhorn 4074 doesn't require to change the date but if you didn't work for MS you sure got it in illegal way so having the CD/ISO/whatever is illegal, which means that installing from this media is illegal too. And about the activation itself - if you got a key that activates successfully, you got it illegally too so if you activate it, it would be illegal anyway. I'm not an expert anyway :roll:

But as is pointed out often, nobody cares about the legality of alphas and betas.
