    My only internet is Wireless and have exhausted previously some time ago the possibility of putting an old laptop online (Compaq nx6120). by wireless with XP.. I don't need it to be online,the main reason is I just want to run some GWBasic programs, I believe I can instal basic with XP. What I need to know is whether I can activate XP Home (I have several legit copies I was using on different towers but now I am 100% off-grid I am restricted to laptops) Would like it on my spare laptop without doing it online. I don't have a phone for the verification process, But obviously I have OTHER laptops (running Win 10) on internet with email and webmail etc. Can I get the magic number by email ?

    I don't know about the activation process since all my XP machines are running activation cracks. It does seem like a lot of hassle just to run GWBasic. Since you have Windows 10 you have 2 choices:

    Run GWBasic in DOSBOX or download PC-Basic.
