So i honestly havent had a single problem with Vista, until this morning. I wake up to a window that says i need to activate windows again because of a hardware change. Uhhh.... what? I am going to change my hardware soon, but i havent even opened my computer lately. I did order the 64bit DVD, but that should not have an effect on me running Vista now. Also, I hadnt opened Photoshop or 3dsmax8 in a while, and when i opened them both the other day, it said i had to activate them, as there was a problem with the license. Photoshop i just used the same serial and it worked. However, 3dsmax8 would not reactivate. Flash hasnt asked me to activate again. I dunno whats up, maybe a recent Vista security update screwed everything up? Im just going to wait for the 64bit DVD and my new computer parts to get here and set all that up at once. No sense in calling to get it working, then just have to change my hardware in a week. Anyone have a problem like this? I just cant restart because im sure if i do it wont let me do anything until i activate it. Now i just have the Activation window off to the side. Pretty lame. I got it through the MS Academic Alliance for free through my school. Id be real pissed if i paid for it and this happened.
