XP activation after 2014

I still have an old Acer laptop running XP that I want to keep for some older software. Will I still be able to do a fresh install and activate with my OEM key if I need to in the future? I've heard many different things about XP activations after 2014.

As per the description, you are having query about the activation date of Windows XP after 2014.



You can go ahead and Install and activate Windows XP after 2014. Only the Support option would not be there after 2014 for Windows XP.
