- How to install Internet Explorer 7(IE 7) without any WGA checks and
- Avoid WGA checks to install New Microsoft Software (using MS Tool Orca)
I got a lot of mails asking for any similar way to install the cool new Windows Media Player 11 without any WGA (Windows Genuine Advantage) checks and here's the perfectly working solution.
Once you double-click the executable that you downloaded it asks for a WGA check and will not continue the installation until it was checked for Windows Genuine Advantage.
I have done some research and here is a way that makes it possible to install the software by making a few changes to some registry settings. I found this trick online and it seems to be working fine for both the Media Player 11 installation and also for the Internet Explorer 7 installation.
All you need is the following registry file which you can download at this rather spammy website(mind you) called http://depositfiles.com/files/327845. Once executed you simply start the windows media player 11 for xp installation and it should go through passing the WGA check without problems.
Disclaimer: Suspicious users should check the registry file before they double-click it and make a backup of their registry.
