  1. I wonder if anyone can shed some light on a problem i'm having...

    Sometime ago i uninstalled Style XP, and recently i have decided to re-install it. The problem is halfway through installing the files it throws up an error message:-

    INSTALL ERROR
    The installation key is invalid.
    D:\source\TGTSoft\Common\tgtsec\tgtsecprovider.cpp(591): 0xC0040409

    I havn't even got a clue what an installation key is!!!

    I've looked through the registry and deleted hopefully all the references that correspond to this software, but that doesn't help.
    I've tried looking at D:\source\TGTSoft\Common\tgtsec\tgtsecprovider.cpp but there doesn't seem to be any such place.

    Im pretty clueless here, if anyone can help, i'd be grateful....

    Cheers...

    Style XP has an installation key? :confused:

    If so just get another one, from a nefarious source...

    Poor Microsoft spending time and money implementing new checks in SP1 and then providing a knowledge base article on how to change your key :D
