Keyfinder from Magic Jelly bean is the Correct Answer here it will allow you to alter the Product Keys of any XP or Office installation within a few seconds.

The MS DB article that is the way that we where given several years ago when we needed to change 2,500 Product Keys on a copy of XP Pro Volume License was way to time consuming and caued problems if not followed exactly to the letter.

If this is a Volume License copy the MS Genunine Advantage quite often reports the Product Keys as incorrect r unacceptiable and in this case you need to contact MS for replacment Keys. With Every Service Pack that we have applied to the original XP on any Volume License we have had to change the Product Keys over after getting new keys from MS. If you are only looking at 1 machine it's no big deal but when you are looking at several hundred or well over 1K it's more than a slight nusiance. Personally I think this is MS's way of attempting to get us to buy new Licences of their products. Luckelly so far Office hasn't been affected YET!
