FSP - Possible Windows activation issue?

This may be coincidental, but since installing FSP on my Windows 7 machine, I have had to revalidate Windows on two occasions, after getting alerts that my copy of Windows is not genuine.  Of course, it IS genuine, and I have made no changes to Windows that I am aware of that could trigger a revalidation.

 

Has anyone else had this issue recently?

I've sent a report to the Beta team, but wanted to check on here too, in case anyone has any ideas.

    I'm not sure what it said in My Computer as I didn't look. It did say that the version of Windows was not genuine in the right hand corner of my Desktop. I'll have to wait and see if it does it again to check My Computer.
  • I have same problem when i install fsp in windows 7 and restart computer Windows was not genuine

    i put product key and then  activation is OK. but same came when i restart computer

    Could you please submit a bug report, if you haven't already, attaching an FSDIAG? They may not be able to tell exactly what triggered the reactivation, but they may be able to see a common configuration with our two machines.

    Simon,

     

    Thanks for the report (in beta.f-secure.com). I'm replying here so that others who may have this problem can see the answer.

     

    We checked the problem but could not find any evidence that our product is causing the problem. Windows event log just says: "The system has been tampered. 0xC004D301"

     

    One thing you could try is to exclude c:\windows\system32\sppsvc.exe from real-time protection. Let us know how it turns out.

    Hi Ville,

    Thanks for that. Just a thought, but does FSP modify any system dll files that might be relevent to this issue?

    It's not all that helpful that Microsoft aren't more enlightening as to the actual trigger for the reactivation.

    My worry is that, as far as I am aware, only 5 reactivations are allowed, after which, presumably, Windows will cease to function, and I've used two already. Smiley Sad
  • I too went to the window the key to getting old and I had to reactivate the capacity to work with a vengeance, I finally got the activation through the browser to work, but I removed the projection of the program, I sent a message and file support, but the answer has not come yet

    "minullakin meni windowa avain vanhaksi ja jouduin aktivoimaan uudelleen joka teetti töitä ihan tosissaan, lopulta sain aktivoinnin selaimen kautta toimimaan mutta poistin projection ohjelman, lähetin viestiä ja tiedoston tukeen mutta vastausta ei ole tullut vielä

    Just to update this, I am still having to re-activate Windows every few days.  I still have no idea if this has anything to do with FSP, but it happened again this morning, after the FSPTP122 upgrade yesterday. 

     

    I am also now having problems with a missing 'nvspcap.dll', which appears to be connected to GeForce Experience.  I am currently trying to reinstall this, but it's now complaining about another missing dll, 'streamci', and refusing to reinstall. 

     

    Coincidence?  Is anyone else having these issues with Windows 7?
