      Hi everyone.

      I have a current licence for Norton 360V3.0 so it is important for me to get it working on Windows Server 2008R2.

      On Windows Server 2008, I was replacing file tokens.dat from a trial Vista Ultimate, so my system was recognized as Vista (works for any edition of Vista to: if you need to get Ultimate edition – you will be able to install DreamScene, for example)

      After replacing I could install any program with only client systems support, such as Noron 360V3.0

      And then replacing tokens.dat from Server back and reboot.

      So the next question is: how can I do such temporary “switch” on Windows Server 2008R2 ?

      Are there needed files from Windows 7 ?

      Is the tokens.dat file you’re talking about the one in C:WindowsServiceProfilesNetworkServiceAppDataRoamingMicrosoftSoftwareProtectionPlatform ? You could try replacing it with one from Windows 7 and see what happens.

      In fact, I’ll try and do this tonight to see if MSE will install.

      Yes, I found the tokens.dat file in that directory

      C:WindowsServiceProfilesNetworkServiceAppDataRoamingMicrosoftSoftwareProtectionPlatform

      but now I there is another problem: how to replace it with Windows 7’s one?

      I couldn’t stop the “Software Protection” service to replace the file, even at Administrator user.
      So I tried to disable it at all.. but after reboot system gone broken: I couldn’t even load it to swtich service’s startup back to automatic.

      So, how to replace the file? It is locked by the “Software Protection” service.

      P.S. I’ve done a snapshot of the VM before these operations, so I reverted system back and I’m ready to try other way.

      Use a Linux Live-Disc like Ubuntu!
