Welcome to the Virtual Acorn Product
This page provides access to the on-line unlock code request system. Please take the time to read through any supporting articles and to follow any instructions provided.
If you are running Windows XP we strongly suggest you read the following article:
Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10
If you are running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10 and are using an older version of VirtualRPC you will need to change the User Account Control settings on your PC before unlocking your VirtualRPC.
If your CD looks like the one on the right it's a new CD and you do not need to alter the User Account Control Settings.
If your CD looks like the one on the left it's an old CD and you need to change the following User Account Control settings.
Before you request an unlock code please make sure that you have:
- Disabled 'User Account Control' (if required)
- Installed a copy of VirtualRPC on your computer.
- Run the product to generate the Product ID number and have this ready.
- Have your CD serial number (printed on the CD) to hand.
- (Optionally) checked the Download page on the VirtualAcorn website to ensure that your copy is up to date.
If you are not sure about any of the above then please click here to open the help page..
Once you have all the information ready please choose the appropriate option. If you don't choose the correct option the unlock code request might get rejected.
