If you XP cd key is static, why don't you create it as a string public variable instead of database value.
Search value Replace value Type
LDXPCDKEY 12345-12345-12345-12345-12345 String
That is the problem. We have some OEM Windows XP licenses, so the cd key is never the same. I need to backup it before remastering a computer.
But actually I am testing a solution. I forget a sub-value in my template variable.
Actually I use "Computer"."Environment"."Variable"."VE_XP_CDKEY"."Value"
It seems to modify successfully my "sysprep.inf" file.

If these are OEM Windows XP Professional licenses you should be able to follow the instructions here:
There is a key you can use that will activate on OEM boxes. If your scenario is a bit different, in that some are volume license and others are OEM then it becomes a bit more difficult.
The variable name you mentioned actually should work. You could try and test the variable by using it elsewhere in a provisioning script, such as making a temporary registry value. That way you can see what it's actually pulling out and see if there's a problem with it.
