Not sure what has happened (no doubt my fault) but my VM installation of winXP as gone to full size (40GB) on the HDD.
I couldn't believe I had filled it up so I installed XP in a new VM next to the existing XP and it is currently showing 3GB. I will install the few things I need to run on this new XP VM, but it is showing "30-days left to activate."
How do I deactivate the old 40GB XP so that I can then activate the new one?
This is more a Microsoft question then a VMware one but I don't think you can deactivate Windows XP.
If you have the correct licenses to run 2 Windows XP then you should be able to activate it the normal way
