Updates :: Windows Suddenly Not Activated?

Mar 25, 2014

I used my retail Windows 8 Pro key to activate Windows 8.1 RTM. Then used my Windows Media Center to add features and get Windoes Media Center

I used my laptop for like 5 days, now suddenly I see the build number mentioned on the desktop, so I checked my activation status and it said windows is not activated

I clicked Activate Now, and it shows my product key ending in: GBFNG-2X3TC-8R27F-RMKYB-JK7QT that is a default installation key and not an actual product key

So I hit the Enter key button and enter my Windows 8 key again, that says : "this key cannot be used to activate this edition of Windows".

I used the WMC key, that also says "This key didn't work try another key"

Could this be because I tried to use the Windows Setup box yesterday?

Trying to change the product manually in CMD also didn't work:

Updates :: Windows 8.1 And WMC Activation?

Jul 15, 2013

When I first installed Windows 8 I got 2 free WMC keys. I used one on my Windows 8 system and never used the 2nd one. I have installed 8.1 preview using the ISO and Hyper-V. Today I used "Add features to Windows 8" using the unused WMC key to install WMC on my 8.1 virtual system and it worked great.

Updates :: Windows 8 - Getting Activation Error 0x8007007B?

Aug 16, 2014

I bought a laptop last July it had Windows 8 preinstalled, I had it for about a month and the screen went black on it so i sent it to a guy in my town and he fixed it but ever since it kept telling me to activate Windows 8, but it wont activate when i put in the serial code it says "Error: 0x8007007B The filename, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect"

I've tried to fix it and i'd get it to go away for a while and it'd pop up again but since the other day whenever i turn it on it goes to this blue screen asking me to activate it and after a while on it the blue screen pops up again but it still wont activate it says "Windows can't activate at the moment"

Updates :: Windows 8.1 Activation Error - 0xC004C003

Aug 20, 2013

I had Windows 8 Pro with Media Center installed on my Asus K55A laptop and it was 'activated'....no problems! So I decided to install the 8.1 Preview via the Windows Store...installation went fine. However when exploring, I noticed that it was not activated: So I entered in the the product key for my Windows 8 pro information....even purchased a Windows 8 Pro media DVD....have a copy of the email with the purchase price..So I enter in the Product Key that worked successfully with Windows 8 Pro: Received this nice message..

Error Code: 0xC004C003
Error Description: The Activation server determined the specified product key has been blocked

A note that also stated, You need to enter in the product key on the back of Windows 8 box, or the product key that came in the email that you received when you purchased the DVD....I have a copy of the email that I received with the purchased Windows 8 DVD.....there is NO product key listed at all!Now I can not even attempt to customize Windows 8.1 preview, because it is not activated.....

I am quite frustrated to say the least, and even attempted to install (clean) back to Windows 8 Pro with my purchased DVD....when I entered the same product key that was successful (only 3-4 days) ago....the installation process stalled!

So I stuck in a Windows 7 disc.....and at least the system rebooted back into Windows 8.1 Preview....but still no dam activation...I guess my only alternative is to contact Microsoft support... my Windows 8 Pro with Media Center was running beautifully and was fully activated only 2 hrs ago...

Updates :: Windows 8 Activation Fails After 8 Months

Oct 28, 2013

I had Windows 8 Professional edition from ASDF India (Association of Software Developers & Faculties). They had provided a KMS Activated version, which after installation, activated Windows 8 automatically. Also to mention that it is a genuine copy, as I had a special password which was provided by them to log in and download windows 8. However, I was not provided any extra Keys.

After running smoothly for 8 months, today out-of-the-blue a message pops up saying Windows 8 is not activated. The error shows as follows :

Error : 0x8007232B
Description : DNS Name does not exist.

I tried to follow the steps mentioned in this Microsoft Article Error 0x8007232b or 0x8007007B occurs when you try to activate Windows, but could not solve the error.

Updates :: Windows 8.1 Update 1 Showing Activation Error?

May 3, 2014

I have installed Windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro Version a few weeks back on my desktop computer running 64 bit version of the OS. The OS was running perfectly fine until today when it started showing activation error. This is not right since I had installed Windows 8.1 Update 1 with a legit key since I have an MSDN subscription As you can see in below pic. It says that you can activate the Windows Machine now

Now I went ahead and tried to activate the windows by the key which I had intially activated and also with a new fresh different key which I haven't any activated windows machine yet. Both the steps didn't yield any fruitful results

1) When I hit "Activate" button

2) When I click "Error Details"

3) When I click "See Support info online" - Nothing happens

I have tried below troubleshooting steps but nothing happened yet

Run sfc/scannow command. This failed at 42%Tried to scan registry and fix the registry by using Advanced System Care 7.2 Pro EditionRefresh the PC. PC was unable to refresh. I had inserted my OS USB DriveTried System Restore to yesterday state. System Restore too failedUninstalled Windows Updates that were installed yesterday.

Updates :: Broken Activation After Upgrade To 8.1?

Oct 18, 2013

I called microsoft activation center and the only suggestion they have is clean install of windows 8 and redo the upgrade because the media center activation key was expired (after the promotion period). It wasted me an hour to make the call and talk with the manger (employee id 2814). They sound like it is none of their business.

Updates :: Win8 Activation Error Description Not Found (new Laptop)

Aug 11, 2014

I bought an asus laptop yesterday, this laptop came with windows 8 preloaded and in theory pre activated.What I did when i got home was turn my computer on, select a lenguage, add my email address, add my home network connection and create a profile. I dont want to need to type my email address everytime i turn this thing on so the profile i created has no password. When adding said profile i noticed that my windows 8 copy was not activated because i also wanted to change my profile pic and it would not allow me to do so, so i go investigate and the message i get is "Activation error description not found" and bellow that is a button that says "activate" and bellow that button there is a link to windows customer service. When i click the button that says "activate" i see a small rotating circle and the words "checking key" and then nothing else.

I tried to do a system restore with no luck.

I tried to reset my system but i need to have a recovery media cd inside or a windows installation disk that i dont have since it came pre-installed.

I tried to remove everything and re-install windows, i also cant do tha because of the previous reasons.

So i try to get a recovery copy(looked for recovery in system and opened the one that just said recovery) on some cds or dvds, but when i try to it wont let me because i am missing some files and its just not possible.

Win8 Pro - Windows Has Wmc BUT Is Not Activated

Oct 1, 2013

my laptop came with win8 core edition. Anyways, i updraged to pro version using add features to windows and activated it. DONE

everything was fine untill for some stupid reason i remembered that i have a wmc key (the one microsoft gave for free for some time). So i searched my email and found the key. I was not expecting it to work as the time period to install the free key was over.

Anyways, i decided to try it out. I enter the key in add features and i am surprised to see that it says the key is valid. so i clicked next. It installed fine and when it rebooted i was even greeted with a screen saying everything worked fine. Then i notice windows is not activated. I go to activation and it returns the error saying the key is blocked.

Now my windows has wmc BUT is not activated. I can not use my win8 pro key since it does not have wmc. I searched online and it seems that the only way to go back is to reinstall win8

Is there any way to remove wmc? Or any other way i can activate my windows using my pro product key?

I dont understand if the key was blocked why did it say that the key works :
