Rejoice! The long-awaited version 0.9 is finally available.
Please be so good as to read the following instructions & disclaimer of warranty before downloading it :
Chew-WGA was designed to test the security resistance of various software protections built into Windows 6.1.x operating systems, and is intended for educational purposes only. It works by making certain changes to the software protection platform and the multilingual user interface resources. This utility should never be executed on a system intended for continual use. If you want to use your copy of Windows continually, you are required to purchase a license.
1. Run “slmgr.vbs –xpr” and write down the expiration information, perhaps on a desktop sticky note.
2. If you have any data that you’d like to backup for safe-keeping, then this would be the best time to handle that.
3. Run the “CW.eXe” application and click “Apply” to install or “Revert” to uninstall. Only the applicable button will appear. Be patient, as the process may take several minutes to complete. Do not interrupt it; it will not get stuck unless it shows a popup error. When the patching has finished, you will see either a message that “Chew-WGA has been installed!” or “Chew-WGA failed to uninstall!”. If it fails, a log will be placed on your desktop.
4. If you want to test it, change your system date to several years past your grace period expiration. After moving your date forward, let it run for at least 2 hours and take notice of any of the following results:
- A notice about the expiration date being reached.
- A text watermark on the desktop that says “For testing purposes”
- A text watermark on the desktop that says “This copy of Windows is not genuine”
- The desktop and taskbar automatically change to a non-existent theme featuring the notorious all-black wallpaper.
- The system reboots itself without permission every 2 hours.
- When running the Control Panel, WordPad, Windows Photo Viewer, Notepad, Calculator, or Paint, it brings up a dialog that reads, “To use this feature without interruption, this computer needs to be running genuine Windows.”
Chew-WGA should not be used as a means to circumvent the legitimate purchase and licensing of the operating system. Some of the file and settings changes that this software attempts to produce may result in the loss of data, which may or may not be recoverable. It is advised that the target operating system be removed after testing this tool, or else unpredictable software behavior may occur.
