Windows 8 & 8.1 Activation Failed: Error Code 0xC004C003

Q: Windows 8 & 8.1 Activation Failed: Error Code 0xC004C003

I have recently updated my preloaded window 8 to 8.1. However, after the update it does not accept my old window 8 key and requires me to activate again using a product key. Here is the error code: 0xC004C003
My DELL XPS came with a preloaded copy of window 8 and yes it has a window 8 sticker at the back
and was fully activated before I updated to windows 8.1. And as far as I know, system which comes with preloaded window 8 has its product key injected to the motherboard and 8.1 is a free update for window 8 users.
So why the update does not accept my window 8 key and ask me for a new key ? I know my window 8 key cannot be used for any other system because the key is injected in the motherboard and I don't even know the key myself.
So what can I do now for my Window to be activated again ?
More frustration is that I can't get back to windows 8.
I tried to reset to the factory image by using DELL backup & Recovery software built in the system.
However, after resetting to the factory image it does not accept embedded product key.

Preferred Solution: Windows 8 & 8.1 Activation Failed: Error Code 0xC004C003

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

After a reset of my laptop, Windows isn't activating.   I'm getting the error 0xC004C003: The activation server determined the specified product key has been blocked.  I talked to Microsoft support; the first person dircted me to activate Windows by phone (which didn't work), and the second told me to contact the maker of my laptop (HP).  Judging by other forum posts regarding this subject, HP needs to give me a new Windows product key.   Any and all help would be appreciated - I'm hyped for Windows 10 and I don't want that unactivated when I upgrade.

Hello everyone,

I just updated my Windows 8 to 8.1 through the windows store, but now I can't activate it, using my product key. I got my Windows 8 through Dreamspark and then upgraded it to Media Center edition.
Both my media center key and the key I used to initially install 8 don't work.

Any ideas how I can fix this?

Hi Gang:

Man this is quite a frustrating experience...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...bla, bla.....
So I enter in the Product Key that worked successfully with Windows 8 Pro: Received this nice message...lol

A:Windows 8.1 Activation Error: 0xC004C003

This error indicates that the Key is blocked from activation.

Usually, it indicates that the Key is an OEM_SLP one operating on a retail install - and I suspect that this is the case here.
How did you install the Preview? - using what media?

There's also the possibility that it simply needs telephone activation.

telephone activation (operator calls)
Click on the Start button
in the Search box, type
SLUI 4
and hit the Enter key
follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you

Hello,Windows 8 now refuses to activate automatically after the 3rd HP Sytem Recovery in two weeks. To clarify: I had to use HP System Recovery tool three times because Windows 10 upgrade crashes the system badly. First time I didn't give system enough time to get activated and installed Windows 10 over fresh Windows 8, and Windows 10 crashed badly). Second time I installed all Windows 8 security updates (took several days), it activated itself at some point, and then Windows 10 fiasco repeated again. After the third Windows 8 recovery, Windows 8 gives me activation error 0xC004C003.I am guessing that Microsoft rejects my activaton code because I used it too often recently. HP wants me to pay for consultation because my warranty is over.More info:- Windows 8 64 bit- Windows 8 was activated successfuly during previous recovery attempt.- I installed all securuty updates offered by Windows 8- I do not have an actual Windows license sticker or DVD. This is OEM Windows 8 version; its activation code is supposedly built in into BIOS.- No harware changes, no upgrades or anything. No hardware errors.- This laptop was purchased through Amazon three years ago. I am original owner.Thanks!

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Guys, need some feedbacks on my problem I'm facing right now on my WINDOWS 10 PRO:

- I joined Insider program in Nov,'14 to get a taste of developemental version's upcoming features of Windows 10 Tech Preview.

- My Tech preview got updated on 29th Jul,'15 during first worldwide release of Windows 10 public release!!

- In Sept,'15 , (I was running my PC as dual boot ie, Ubuntu 10.14 & Win 10 Tech preview both). As I got the Full public version of Win 10 Pro so I tried to remove the Linux OS. But, during removing Linux OS I encountered "disc.img missing" with bluescreen issue. I had to completely format my PC with brand new partitions. I then did clean install of the WIN 10 PRO taking the Disk image from the Microsoft website.

- To activate my newly installed Win 10 Pro, I contacted Windows Answer Desk & after a dozen of logical Q&A the person activated my PC via remote access.

- On yesterday (7th Dec,'15) after auto updation of my PC with the Nov build 10586, I again lost the activation. I was hoping post updation after restarting the PC & connecting the internet my new build windows will get activated intelligently!! But, sadly it didn't.

- I tried manually entering the product code (which I noted down & saved when the Windows executive guy was activating my PC via remote access). Still no luck !! [Error code: 0xC004C003]

A:Lost activation after Win10 update Nov build 10586 [Error: 0xC004C003]

As an Insider, assuming the upgrade was from an activated 10240 build with a logged in Insider MSA, then you should be OK - but ask in the Insider forum... I dropped out a long time ago.

The key and subsequent (blocked key) error code is irrelevant on such activations.

When I log on, windows asks if I want to activate windows. I say yes, it goes to the background screen with a window that says "windows is already activated, click OK to exit". I do that and it logs me off immediately. It doesn't matter if I log on as administrator or user, it does the same thing. If I answer no to the first question, then it assumes I am shutting down and I get the standard shutdown/restart window. What is wrong??

A:windows xp activation code error

Welcome to TSF....

Try the following:

1. Reboot your computer into "Safe Mode".

A description of the Safe Mode Boot options in Windows XP
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222/en-us

2. Go to Start > Run and type: %systemroot%\system32 then press the Enter key.

3. Locate these two files: wpa.dbl and wpa.bak

4. Rename the wpa.dbl file to wpaold.dbl and wpa.bak to wpaold.bak

5. Reboot your computer into Normal Mode. This will force activation on the following boot. Sometimes if those files get corrupted, they can cause this type of problem.

If the above procedure does not solve the problem, then try:

Hi,
I was updating my windows 7 premium windows on my laptop to windows 10 using the windows update tool and ran into bit of a snag. Mid way of the update my laptop turned off due to thermal overheating. Upon starting laptop after it had cooled down, laptop started rolling back to the previous version of windows. Rollback was flawless except for losing the activated windows key.

The few options of restoring key is out for me, such as, the sticker behind laptop is not there anymore (its an old hp g62 laptop), possible code within box is also not an option, the code I got from produkey software is giving me error 0xC004E003, the option to activate through phone is absent in slui.exe 4 and system restore option is out too (possibly due to no recovery partition available).

I have done a clean reinstall of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1 on and Acer Aspire 5738G Laptop that I originally purchased Brand new from a large trusted company.

I am having trouble activating "error code 0xC004E003"

I got that error using a product key a programme retrieved for me before I done the clean reinstall. I did not know about the product key sticker on the bottom of my laptop at that time.

The key on the sticker won't even type all the way so I can't even test that key, I had the same problem and with that key on the last install and was told i had the wrong ISO now this ISO is no different.


This laptop has been in for hard drive repair with new image, now I don't know what key the they used to activate. I would assume the same one(hopefully)

I had BSOD problems and thats why I have done a clean install which has fixed all the problems I had previously.

what can I possibly do to activate asap I only have three days to fix this?

Hi, I had upgraded my OEM version of Windows 8.1 (64bit Single language) to Windows 10 but now when I am trying to activate it, it shows the following Error code: 0xC004F034, windows can't activate try again later.  Is there any solution for this error code.

A:Windows 10 Activation Error code: 0xC004F034

There are literally MILLIONS of folks trying to activate Win10 right now -- mainly because MS is pushing this out for free! This code means that the activation servers are overloaded and unable to process your activation request before timing out. LOTS of folks have been reporting this problem on the Win10 forums and the advice there is to simply keep trying.  If you did the upgrade over an existing activated Win7/8/8.1 machine, it will eventually activate -- once the server load goes down.  Some folks have also reported receiving a recent Windows update and upon reboot, their PC was activated.

notepad
and press Enter.

When the notepad opens, go to File menu.
Select Open.

As you saw in the tittle, my computer upon start, keeps on saying "Windows Activation Error code:0x44578". It is said on a white rectangular box and the Toll Free # it's saying to call is "(888) 524-0577". You need to have the "password" to get in and i've already tried "closecloseclosecloseclose" (CLOSE lowercased 5x). I've tried F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, Shift + Restart, and many many more. I've even DELETED all my files and everything and its still there. I do not have any access to anything on my PC and that is the only thing that shows up, nothing else. I currently have the latest version of Windows and simply do not know what to do at ALL. The screen also says near the top/middlish left corner on a card, "ask for GENUINE Microsoft software" and it also contains 3 buttons. "Server 1", "Server 2", "Server 3". I can do Ctrl + Alt + Delete and access the settings charm with Shift + Restart. I simply do not know what to do so I have come upon this forum for advice.

Hi,

Recently I've been prompted by my computer to validate my windows 7 as it may not be genuine etc. Although when I go to either activate online or re-type in my key, I receive the error 'code 0x80072f8f' and it closes.

I've researched the topic before posting this, and ran the diagnostic tool and got the following results,

I bought a new laptop (GIGABYTE P35K-CF2) a couple of days ago and have been struggling to activate it without making any progress. In contrast with other threads I have been reading on the forum, I am not trying to install a different OS version at all. I just need to activate the Windows 8 Professional that was pre-installed by default.

I understand the current Microsoft approach is to embed the Windows Product Key in the motherboard (encrypted in the BIOS/UEFI) in order to minimize piracy, etc. I also understand this allows for the Windows installation to directly read such product key and activate it automatically. Well, for some reason this is not working on my brand new laptop.

Allow me to explain in detail what has been happening during the last 24 hours:

1) I noticed a pop-up window that required a new Windows key since the current product key was apparently blocked. Please notice that up to that point I didn't change anything regarding to Windows itself. In fact, I only installed a couple of programs, including an antivirus. Automatic updates were also turned off.

Even had it been valid, it would only have been so on machines preinstalled with Ultimate by Lenovo.
You motherboard is a retail one, and cannot support any OEM_SLP Key

I've recently run in to activation issues with my Windows 7 Pro. A few months ago I cloned my HDD onto a new Samsung EVO SSD 250Gb. Everything was working fine until a few weeks later Microsoft pushed an auto updat; all of the sudden Windows was failing activation giving an error code: 0x8007005. I then preformed a clean install of windows on the same SSD drive. It activated online with no issues but after the 190 or so automatic updates it again was failing the activation. I called Microsoft to help troubleshoot the issue and they did a remote connection. We've installed the OS about 5 times with microsoft tech at the helm all with the same outcome.

Microsoft sent me a new replacement DVD and key. I received it in the mail the other day and again did a clean install; again I passed the online activation but after the all the auto updates it reverted back to a non-genuine status.

Microsoft tech is telling me that this issue is likely due to my SSD that the OS is on because he says he has eliminated all other possibilities. With a brand new SSD from Newegg I suspect that it is not the issue but something else entirely? I am really at my wits end regarding this.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues with failing activation and what was done to overcome it?

Thanks in advance!!

After some sort of automatic update overnight, I started receiving a blue popup message telling me to activate my copy of Windows. I first thought nothing of the message and followed the instructions, but the activate windows button under PC settings gave me an error. I left it alone figuring it was a one time issue, but as the popup happened again, I realized that the issue needed to be resolved. I looked up the error code I was given and was told to activate by phone. I did so and after the automated operator said "if there are no errors, your product was activated successfully" I continued using my computer as normal, since there were no errors. The popup came up again, and at this point I was stumped. I looked online for more solutions, but almost every one of them was either unresolved or solved via the phone activation. One said to restart my computer, but that didn't work either. I contacted Microsoft support yesterday, and they deemed that the issue was a problem with the activation code, and redirected me to Dreamspark, where I received my code initially. With no response from Dreamspark yet, and a computer that irritates me to use for any application as the popup is extremely intrusive, I am looking for other solutions to this issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Please see the first thread and provide a diagnostic report.

That error is normally due to the software licencing service not executing - check the report for Service Available - should be true.

A:error code 0xC004E003: windows 7 activation problems

hi,I'm running windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. I've run into some activation problems, getting error code 0xC004E003 when I try enter a new product key as provided by Microsoft.I've had a look at all the discussions on these forums and none of them have helped as yet unfortunately.
Hi
The error code  0xC004E003 simply means that the Software Licensing Service reported that license evaluation failed.
Here is what you need to do.1. Press the WINKEY+R to bring up the Run dialog box.2. Type  SLUI 4  in the box and press OK. This will start the Telephone Activation Wizard.3. Select your country in the drop down menu and click the Next Button. Follow the instructions on the screen and call the number that is shown there.
Follow the recorded instructions and when the telephone activation fails, stay on the line and an Activation Representative will answer. Just describe the problem you are experiencing and they will manually activate the system for you.Hope this helps.Thank You for testing Windows 7

Hi
Win 7 activation is failing due to error code 0xc004e003
I will post the MGAD Tool results at the end of the post, but first I'll explain the full situation (in case it helps)
A friend asked me to sort out their PC as it was stuck continually attempting, and failing, to downloading new Windows updates.
When I took a look, I noticed it had the option to upgrade to Win10. After checking with them, they said they would give it a try so I installed it.
After a bit of playing we noticed the graphics card wasn't fully compatible and would no longer let them play Minecraft (their kids favourite game), so I used the revert to Win7 option.
However, after Win7 had been re-installed it started saying that I needed to be authenticated. Upon trying to I just get the code 0xc004e003 even though (as far as I am aware) it was fully authenticated previously.
The details from MGAD follow:

Just over a month ago I did a clean install of windows on my laptop because it was really slowing down. All went fine except for a couple of windows update problems which I fixed and it was back to being fast again. Anyway today I turned it on and it said my windows was not genuine so I went to the activation tab and it said that my product key had never been properly activated which is a bit strange as I quite sure I activated it properly after I did the clean install. I tried reactivating it but it came up with the error code 0xc004f063 and I was really confused. I have not tried any of the solutions on any other threads as I know that sometimes it can mess up your computer if isn't specifically for your problem/system. I have posted the diagnostics below as recommended:

A:Alienware M17xr4 Windows 7 HP x64 Activation error code 0xc004f063

It looks like you reinstalled using Retail media, rather than the Alienware Recovery media.
That being the case, you MUST use the Product Key from your COA sticker for activation rather than the OEM_SLP Key currently in use.


You need to change the Product Key to the one on the COA sticker on the machine's case (or inside the battery compartment), using the Change Product Key link at the bottom of the System properties page.
You may need to activate by phone.

So I am having a rather unusual issue here....

I have been fixing up a computer which was loaded with malware/viruses. I have run the below software programs to help clean up the system:
- Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
- Super Anti-Spyware
- HiJack This

After cleaning it up, I am running into one additional issue which is flagging my system as not being genuine

The system was purchased with a valid license key for Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

My thought here is that there is still some rootkit or rogue malware running which is preventing me access to this file. It is preventing access to other system files such as the hosts file, the ability to start/stop services through the services.msc console, etc.

Couple of things I have tried to resolve this:
- Microsoft support KB article 2008385 = https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2008385
- Disabled Plug N Play service within registry through CMD command
- Enabled Administrator account to attempt activation

After attempting these steps and performing a reboot, I am still unable to get around this unusual activation error. Please help!

I just completely reformatted my computer after a suspected malware attack.
The first thing I tried after reformatting and doing a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64 bit edition was to run windows update. I received the error code 80072EFD. This is before I installed any software, firewalls, or antivirus programs. I also get this same error when trying to activate windows or office, or when trying to set up Microsoft media center.

I do have internet connection. Both firefox and internet explorer work perfectly fine.

I have been in contact with microsoft, but nothing has worked so far. I thought I would see if anyone here had any ideas.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I have already done. Please read through these before posting as you can see I have already tried a lot of things!
1. Waiting 15 minutes and trying again
2. Restarting the computer
3. Adding windows update websites to the internet explorer exceptions list: http://*.update.microsoft.com https://*.update.microsoft.com http://download.windowsupdate.com Microsoft Support http://update.microsoft.com https://update.microsoft.com
4. Verifying internet connectivity (internet works fine)
5. Tried it with Windows firewall on and off. No other firewalls are installed.
6. I tried this before any anti-virus was installed. I have since installed AVG free and tried again both with it running and disabled
7. No software accelerator programs are installed
