Windows Vista Licensing Activation
I recently purchased Vista Ultimate and chose to dual boot with XP and Vista,
thus activating the Vista license.
I then un-installed Vista and chose to load it as virtual machine (VMWare)
on my XP box.
To no one's surprise (probably), I am getting a message that the software
has already been acivated.
What do I need to do in order to resolve this issue ?

Re: Windows Vista Licensing Activation
Just use the telephone activation. You can use Ultimate in a virtual
environment according to the EULA so there should be no problem with that
configuration.
