    Such a thing would almost certainly violate MS licence terms.

    Do you have the 25-character product key?
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    well, luckily ive found my windows installer out of my "old treasure box" .

    ive succesfully installed it in the vmware virtual disk, but now when i try to run an application(specifically freestyle launcher)ive got this error "the procedure entry point DecodePointer could not be located in the dynamic link library kernel32.dll"

    it is the same OS that i am using and got no problems on running the same app.
