Bought OEM for final upgrade, accepted upgrade within the program, at the very end of installation, error message popped up, "application error shmgrate.exe at 0x01f00000, memory could not be written". Installation went on to complete, at end got BSOD, and program cycled back to setup for full version. Did same thing when trying to repair the eval version.

xp64 trial version & xp64 beta version install

Hi there,

I recently had a problem where I downloaded Windows Update on the Beta 
version, which I've now discovered is a nono.

So I'm downloading the xp64 trial version and will install that.

Is it possible to install the trial version without deleting personal files? 
Do you...

you will have to erase the windows install (not everything from the disk, 
just the windows folder and the My documents folder if you create a user with 
the same name) 

is this done during the install of the trial xp64 OS?

The only 'good' option in this case, is to do a 'Repair Install'.
If you boot from the Trial CD, and ask it to install, then the install 
routine is seing that 'other' Windows System and it will give you an option 
to repair it.This re-installs the complete system and leaves everything else 

This is in fact what is happening when you use the upgrade method, you open 
the CD inside Windows and Windows then re-boots and effectuates the repair 
install behind the curtain. Just a bit more cumbersome.

Matthew, please do a clean install, since an upgrade scenario is not 
supported from the BETA version to the RTM. Unknown glitches can take place 
with drivers and software that will make difficult diagnose and determine 
problems if you encounter such issues after upgrading from BETA to RTM. Back 
any necessary data you might have on the BETA version do a clean install of 
XP RTM Trial.

Andre is correct.  Save your personal files, but do yourself a favour and do 
NOT do anything but a clean install.

Me too! I fully agree. I am sitting here, happily typing away at the 
specific keywords - Beta; Trial; Install; Upgrade - I am answering the 
question, this is how you do it, but do NOT do it!!!

I am happy to do a clean install, but how do you back up your files if you 
can't get to a DOS prompt, or into the OS itself?

s I said, I would install another drive and install the OS on it and then
you can read the current file and copy any of the files you need. Drag and
drop them if you want.
You can get to a prompt with the Recovery Console on the install disk if you
want to go that route. Just would seem very time consuming and I don't
think you have write ability to a CD there anyway, but I don't know that.

2.Windows XP64 Trial Version

I signed up for a 120 day trial version of Windows XP 64. I was told I would 
receive an email about how to download and install. How long does it take to 
get this email? It's currently been over 24 hours.... still waiting.

Sorry if not posted in the correct Discussion Group. I find it amazing you 
need to file through a list 100s long (and un-alphabetized) to find a correct 
discussion group!! I've got to be missing something??

3.Moving from XP64 Pro Evaluation version to OEM version


I downloaded the 120 day evaluation version of XP-64 Professional onto my 
workstation and have started using it for a while. In the mean time, after 
evaluation, I ordered an OEM version of XP-64 SP2 and now have the CD with me.

What is the best way of moving from the evaluation version to the OEM 
version that I have bought?

At the end of 120 day evaluation period, will the OS ask me to enter a new 
product-key and validate the XP-64 OEM version? 

Or do I have to do a new, clean install with the OEM version that I have 

Thanks in advance.

Whenever the cust clicks on anything on his desktop this 
message "this module was compiled a trial version of 
delphi, the trial version has expired" appears, and they 
cant do anything on the computer except on shutting down. 
Unloading of startup doesnt fix it. Internet connections 
are down. Control Panel Is empty. 

Basically, the only option I know to this matter is to 
reinstall WinXP. Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
