Hello all,

When I run "oobe/msoobe /a", a pop-up always comes up
saying "Activate windows cannot run because local scripting
has been disabled on this computer. Scripting may have been
disabled for a virus prevention or as a security measure.
Once local scripting has been enabled, run Activate Windows
again."

How can i enable local scripting? There were no solutions
from previous postings.

I have tried ...

Turn on various security setting
SFC /SCANNOW
regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll
regsvr32.exe licdll.dll
etc.

Thanks!

CY,

See if this helps.

Type REGEDIT in Start, Run. Press Enter
Navigate to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \
Internet Settings \ Zones \ 0
Double-click the value 1400 and set it's data to 0

If Security_HKLM_Only is enabled, you need to make the modification in this
key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \
Internet Settings \ Zones \ 0
Double-click the value 1400 and set it's data to 0
Close Registry Editor

The value 1400 corresponds to Active Scripting.

IE>Tools>Internet Options>Security Tab>reduce it to low for the activation,
you can raise it after.

Ramesh,

Wonderful! The following really works.

------------------------------------------------------------
Type REGEDIT in Start, Run. Press Enter
Navigate to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \
Internet Settings \ Zones \ 0
Double-click the value 1400 and set it's data to 0
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks again.
I should ask earlier so that i didn't need
to search the web and wasted a lot of time.
