Registering a product for Cloud

Q: Registering a product for Cloud

I have tried registering my HP PC with the Acer cloud so I can edit docs done on my Acer laptop. When I enter the serial number of the PC, it tells me it is incorrect. I know this not to be true because 1. it is on the side of the PC and 2. I checked it using the Acer serial number finder tool. Both versions were the same. What do I need to do?

I got an MSI-GX630 from a friend who installed XP Pro SP2 on it. I want to sell this computer to someone else and they want the vista home premium installed on it. Vista Home Premium was the original OS on this computer and it has the MS sticker on the bottom with it's key. I ran the boot disc and instered the key and it says it isn't valid. I ran a paradox to it to maybe clear the problem but it still says the key is invalid. Does anyone know a work around without having to call stupid MS support?

A:Valid product key not registering

If you ran the manufacturer's recovery disc that puts the original OS back on it, make sure your hardware is the same (or at least close). OEM Recovery Cds are very h/w specific. Make sure the disc is the correct one or it hasn't been installed and registered on an another machine elsewhere.

After registering for an account I entered my claim code and it says its already registered!  Yesterday during the set up process all I did was change the email address of the product on hpeprint to a more memorable one.  I have not used the claim code previously. I tried to contact customer support about this issue but there is no option for set up problems just as there isn't on forums either. Hence me asking the question here.  However when I tried to verify warrenty it asked for a product number and there isn't on anywhere on my product.  So now it thinks my 1 day old out of the box brand new printer is out of warrenty! Can someone from HP please contact me so I can resolve this issue.

Hi all
Here's a little warning of what could happen if you start becoming too reliant on using "The Cloud".

Twitter was forced to turn over a huge amount of its data to the FBI -- didn't matter if you were resident of a country not subject to the USA's internal policy or legislation.

Maybe 99% of it was just ignored -- but the fact that 3rd parties can access supposedly private data at the drop of a hat should be a concern for everybody.

I don't agree at all with "Child Porn" , "Terrorism" or in particular "In the Interest of Security" -- Whose I wonder !!, etc but these shouldn't become catchalls for instigating investigations just because some corporate big wig doesn't like what's being said about "his / her private life".

(My whole take on sites like Twitter is if you are stupid enough to use these then you deserve everything you get -but that still doesn't excuse the entire database being made available to the FBI - especially when you are dealing with Non US citizens).

I have no time for this particular group -- but you can see where the end point of this type of control can end.

A:the Cloud really is Cloud Cuckoo land

Why anybody would think that The Cloud (or any online storage service) is private? All datas you put on the internet is public or at least the property of the company or organsiation managing the online storage service. Poeple using such service should read the agreement in full. Something nobody ever does. Even if they write that your datas will remain confidential and shouldn't be sold to any third party they know of the law loopholes to do whatever they want with them anyway. About Tweeter and the FBI I don't understand how this is relevant since the FBI has de facto access to tweeter messages just as anybody else. They gave the FBI the datas which are public anyway. They got it in a consolidated format to make it easier to searh through, but these datas are in no way private or protected by some privacy agreement since they were posted on the network for all to see already. The purpose of using Tweeter is that a maximum of poeple read your nonsens, so don;t be surprised if the FBI or the CIA or Interpol read it too.

Has Microsoft changed something in the latest April Windows Updates?
I create a default Windows 8 Enterprise VL image on my laptop in audit mode as I have always done previously.  Nothing has changed from my side.
When I install the image via WDS, everything installs fine.
When I use my WIM file to install via USB, it now comes up with:
The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.
right after selecting the install language.
I have checked EI.cfg and it is normal:
[EditionID]
Enterprise
[Channel]
Volume
[VL]
1
I then tried adding PID.TXT with my Enterprise KMS key and, rather than error it then prompts me for a product key.
Surely using the VL install media it should never ask for a product key.  It never has before. (And I've never had to before)
I prepped the image as normal using:
C:\Windows\System32\Sysprep\Sysprep /generalize /oobe /shutdown /unattend:C:\Windows\win8unattend.xml
Any ideas?  I can't but help thinking something has changed in the latest batch of Windows Updates.  It's quite frustrating as not all my machines are capable of PXE, so I have to use USB.
The reason I think it is a recent change, is if I do a default install and DO NOT do any Windows Updates, it all works fine.  Only when I install the latest WU does it start doing this.

A:[NEW] The product key entered does not match any of the Windows images available for installation. Enter a different product key.

OK, So I've fixed it now, but I will still like to know WHY this has changed.

If i do this to my WIM, it then installs from USB:

imagex /flags "Enterprise" /info c:\temp\WIM\ME\install.wim "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86" "Win8Office2013Enterprise-x86"

I wonder because I use the WDS capture image if this has somehow changed recently.
Very annoying, but now at least I can install my custom image :)

I picked up this lenovo laptop and shortly after I got it the HDD went out. I replaced the HDD and Installed a full version of Windows XP SP2 then used the Win 7 upgrade disc I bought. I did a clean install of the Win 7 then I activated it at that time without any issues. Some time after that I started getting the message it wasn't a genuine copy. I rearmed the time period but I'm not able to activate the copy again with the PID. I get the message this product is for upgrade and not a clean install. I need to find out if I will be able to register this copy or if I will need to start over from scratch. I did try putting in another PID but it didn't activate with it. I haven't been able to change the PID back due to the message I am getting about the upgrade not clean install.

I appreciate any help I can get with this issue.

I recently purchased a Precision M6800 (probably one of the last ) and now want to add an external slice-type battery. I did some searches on DELL web sites (my local Belgium one and some international ones) and on the www. This resulted in several product codes for what seem to be the same, or at least similar products: 451-11831 / 451-BBGJ / 312-1351. Can anyone tell me if those are all the same, or at least compatible products ? And more importantly: is any of those (or all 3) really the slice-type battery I am looking for to attach to the docking connector of my M6800 ?

So short story, I work at a college tech site that fixes student and faculty computers. A foreign exchange student from Japan with a Sony Vaio (most likely from Japan as well) managed to get a virus on his computer and he was blocked off our network. Our policy is that we wipe and reinstall the OS to ensure that the virus is gone. However, we didn't have any Windows 7 Home Prem media CDs so I downloaded a Win7 Home Prem 32bit iso off of MSDN and burnt it to disk. However, when entering the product key given on the bottom of the laptop(and I've checked 3 times now to make sure it's correct), I get a:

"Product key does not match the current Windows SKU" error.

Why is this happening? Do I need a certain burnt iso (from Sony in Japan?) because of the laptop's foreign origins or is something else causing the problem here?

Yes, you need a Japanese iso, they have regional editions.

I have been reading posts on seven-/eight-/tenforums for years with pleasure and gratitude for all the solutions they provided. But my current issue is one of the strangest things I've encountered in all these years. Have been searching through a lot of posts but haven't found any similar issue (or solution for it) yet. So here it goes.

Symptom: the OEM product key in the registry of a Windows 7 Pro installation (laptop) does not correspond with the OEM product key in the laptop's BIOS.

Here's the situation in short. It concerns a laptop from a student friend of mine who asked me to upgrade her current Windows 7 Pro x64 OS to Windows 10. She couldn't tell me if the installation was the original OEM factory partition or if it (perhaps) could be a pirated version. Since I wasn't about to just upgrade to Windows 10 without checking the authenticity of the Windows 7 OS, I performed the regular checks: see if it was activated already by running the "Activate Windows" program (check), check under Control Panel -> System and Maintenance -> System tab if the OS was already activated (check) and run Microsoft's online Validation Tool (check). Everything seems fine, the OS is activated and genuine.

Still, the COA sticker was missing. My friend didn't have any physical recovery media or other stuff with a license sticker on it. So I thought I'd check the product key stored in the BIOS and compare it with the product key in the registry. If they'd correspond, all would... Read more

Okay, I bought a laptop online a couple weeks ago. I recieved the laptop and it did not come with an XP installation disk. I called the place where I got it from, and they said they'd send me one along with the COA. Well, in the mean time, I used an XP disk from our home computer. I didn't register it, and I was just going to wait until I got the new installation disk and COA, and then register that copy. Well, I got the new disk today, with the COA, and I having a ton of troubles.
First, I put the disk in and...nothing ever happened. Went to the drive through My Computer, and nothing was there, although I can physically see data on the CD.
So, I just tried to activate the current windows I had on the comp with the COA that they gave me, and that didn't work.
I talked to the company where I got the computer, and they gave me another key to try, and that didn't work.
Then I tried going into BIOS. I went to startup > boot, and I saw that the CD-rom option was on top, so I clicked save and exit. And it just went back into windows, changing nothing.
I tried calling Windows. The automated computer could not help me. So I tried talking to a customer service rep and I couldn't any longer because I seriously just could not understand her. Partly because of her accent, and partly because my phone is retarded quiet.

Is there a setting or re-booting technique I can use?

You don't need any product key to register, and registration is completely optional, so just skip it if you want. All you need to do is have your product key validated and the operating system activated.

You're only going to notice an improvement when you are using that extra ram (ie multitasking, or doing large scale editing), or if going from single channel, to dual channel mode by adding that stick. If you're not using it, how would you see a benefit?

This problem has been vexing me for weeks. I have a Win2k SP3 network and domain. I have had to convert (clean install from scratch with a reformat), the Win2k workstations to Standard PC, since the USB printer and scanner drivers and IRQ's will not play nice with ACPI. All firmware, driver, USB, and chip upgrades were installed. These are being setup as a workgroup within a static 192.168. x.x subnet, with the DNS pointing to the internal server NIC, which passes it to the second NIC (multhomed), and then the cable modem/firewall with its own DHCP server. DHCP server is not installed/configured on the Win2k server, since the modem/firewall DHCP server handles the ISP dynamic address assignments .

The problem workstations were orginally in a separate Public organizational unit in AD, and under ACPI, they worked nominally. All workstation DNS and DHCP client services are running.

Upon reformatting, again, everything was fine but my mic wouldn't register. I'm pretty sure that I have all of the usual settings done correctly and that the jack is working normally plus the mic/headset works fine (I've tested that on other computers).

I have no idea what I need to do to make this work again and would appreciate any assistance :(

If you need any more info about system specs, which drivers I'm using etc, I'll be happy to provide.

I'm running with Windows XPsp2.

Hi,

A quicky or not so quicky. I recently reinstalled XP and when I was registering at the reinstall time I was following instructions that said to register as "Temp". Now I did that and now I'm stuck with the PC registered as "Temp". I have to continually change the "Temp" to my name when registering new programs and the like. Is there a way to change this on my PC without totally reinstalling XP just to change the registered name from "Temp" to mine? Thanks.

What is the difference between registering a .dll by doing this:
regsvr32 <path & filename of the dll

Versus doing this:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Drivers32]
"vidc.iv32"="ir32_32.dll"

I was given and old Laptop that had that stupid OS Ubuntu on it. I am trying to get it operational to some degree. The thing is I used a system restore CD to install XP. I found the drivers for it and it works OK until I try to get XP updates. Microsoft says I have to register the product within 30 days. SAY WHAT? After all it was only a system restore not the complete OS.
Think it will be useless after 30 days? I guess I will find out soon. Can Microsoft do this to me. The old computer is 8 years old.

A:Registering XP

A system restore disc is the complete OS and more.
Is it the the restore disk for the laptop you installed it on?

Assume I have (under 64bit Win 7) a big program installation with one main *.exe file and lots of *.dlls.

It seems to me that some but not all of these *.dlls need a registration (by regsvr32) which is done typically at installation time.
Some other *.dlls seem to need NO such registration but are accessed dynamically from the program on-demand.

So are there two such types of *.dlls ?

How do I find out which type of DLL lets say myspecial.dll is?

Now lets say that I got an older installation on an USB flash drive.
I have not the original installation setup package.

In order to make it runnable some of these DLLs must be registered now, afterwards.
Can I just register all of them by simply entering:

regsvr32 myspeciallib1.dll
regsvr32 myspeciallib2.dll
...
regsvr32 myspeciallib9.dll
?

Does it hurt if a DLL which is actually not designed for registration is registered anyway?

I am interested only in DLL handling. Other possible issues like missing Registry entries shouldn't be discussed here.

Thank you
Peter

I recently got a laptop from a Rental place ( stupid, I know) and the computer is Registered to them. Do I keep it that way or can I change it to my own? Is it important? And if I happened to change it, would I lose the software that's on mycomputer like NTI CD and DVD maker that is registered to them? Because I happen to like that...also..if I did...would it change how I got a wireless network signal...because I get one now....would that change? PLEASE HELP!!!

I like Windows 8.1 but I like my computer to boot straight into service with no password. It's in my home. I live alone. If I register to download an app from the store I have to go and leave the MS account, using a password, and then make a new account, with no password.

Is there any way to register just for the Store and not change your boot process by adding a password?

A:Registering for MS Store

Hello Patrickt,

If you like, you could set Windows to automatically sign in with the Microsoft account w/ password instead of a local account without a password.

This way you can also use apps that require a Microsoft account easier.

i got my HP Envy a couple weeks ago and just tried to use my SanDisk 8 gig card in the built-in reader, and nothing. no light, no sound, no appearing in the drives list. it simply isn't there. i use it for music in my car. it works fine there, and worked in my old HP (which finally bit the dust a few weeks ago) with no problem. both have Windows 10. i updated to all the newest drivers and it's like it isn't even there.

addendum: it doesn't even appear as an option in the drives list. it's like it's not there at all. is this a hardware issue? was this PC made wrong?

I just bought a second monitor for my desktop. But when I plugged it in, it would not register. I did try configuring in on under control panel and under display settings. It still wouldn't work after that. Then we asked advice from our local geek squad. They recommended we change the graphics card because the monitor might not have enough space/room for a second monitor. When I replaced my graphics card, went through the updates, and installed the GeForce driver, it still wont recognize that there is a second monitor hooked up?

Please help me

I am running Windows XP and I have written an application in VB.net 2008 express which depends on a .dll which I also created in VB.net.

When I am in the debug environment I seem to be able to add the dll as a reference and all is well.

When I am running the compiled application and I want to use a revise .dll I can't seem to work out how my application finds the right version of the .dll to use.

I have tried unregistering the dll using Regsvr32 /u <path & name> but I get a message telling me that it failed because it could not find the module. There are only two copies of the dll on my system, one in ...\bin\debug and one in ...\bin\release I have tried un registering both but it finds neither.

So is it registered at all? I certainly cant register it because I get a DllRegisterServer entry point error

Whats going on here?
How do I swap the version of a dll when I want to?
What does Microsoft mean by a self registering dll?, and how do I know if mine is or not?

Some swimple explanation would be very much appreciated

I have a copy of CardKick that I got about six or seven years ago -- used it successfully in a tech support role, but never had to print it out, always just referred to the topics, which were listed in alphabetical order. That made it good to use in that mode.

I now have used it to catalog paragraphs of a paper I'm writing for graduate school. If it works, it'll be a major breakthrough for me -- I title and type in, one paragraph at a time, the ideas and cites for my paper, then print them all out, re-arrange them in a sensible order and: Voila! Paper rough draft is done!

Problem: I can't print but one card at a time, which is impossibly time-consuming. I need to be able to print out the whole card file. To do that, I need a registration key code. But cardkick.com isn't even on the web any more, all of the addresses I've tried for the developer get kicked back, and I'm at a complete dead end. Does anyone know how to get ahold of this Piotr guy so I can pay him the twenty bucks, get the key code and get on with my paper?

A:Registering Cardkick

Is this the program you are talking about?CardKick is a simple cardfile manager for password-encrypted, textual information. The program is very small; works with any number of opened cardfiles and can open URL links using a Web browser. Password encryption combined with the ability to open URL links via a Web browser makes CardKick an ideal place to store information like: Web addresses, user names, passwords and credit card account details.
