KMS Host will not activate Windows Pro/Ent after updating CLVSK to activate Windows 10

Q: KMS Host will not activate Windows Pro/Ent after updating CLVSK to activate Windows 10

I have a Windows 2012 R2 server running as my KMS host. This server has been in production for over 18 months. It services both Windows 7 Pro, Ent, Win8.1, Office 2010 Pro Plus and Office 2013 Pro. I set this KMS up via the VLS on 2012 and manage it via
VMAT 3.0 version 6.2.9200.0. After I replaced my 2012 server kms host key with the newer one that would activate Windows 10, did an offline via telephone activation. My issue is that now I can activate all my servers (2012 r2) but cannot activate any Windows
7 Pro/Ent workstations. My main error is "The software licensing service reported that the product could not be activated. No key management service (KMS) could be contacted. With that being said, I've checked to ensure that the KMS service is running
and that port 1688 is open. This was accomplished using PortQryUI. I also have verified that the KMS host is properly registered in DNS. Within the KMS event logs, I have Evt ID#12290 and in the Volume Activation Management Tool logs I have VMAT Runtime Evt
ID#1000 with error 0xC004F074. On any given WS (Win7) the Application event log shows Evt ID#12288 with 0XC0000022, 0x00000000 as it starter, with no #12289 entries. I've read where I should remove the newly installed host key, reboot, reinstall, activate
and then reboot. The strange thing is that when I run "slmgr.vbs /dlv all" I can see the newly installed host key as verified by the last 5 digits and it shows active and licensed. If I run "slmgr.vbs /upk XXXXXXXXX, I get an error stating the
key cannot be found. At this point I'm at a lost. All updates / KBs have been uinstalled prior to this license change. PLEASE provide some help as I stated earlier, all was ok until I upgraded my host key. I wish I could post actual entries, but my network
does not permit this.

Preferred Solution: KMS Host will not activate Windows Pro/Ent after updating CLVSK to activate Windows 10

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.)

Hi everyone, please help~~ I have been struggling for 2 days on this simple VMWare desktop deployment/composition.



After all the reading patiently today.. finally I know how to setup a KMS host. I made a win7 to be KMS host, and create the _vlmc srv record in the dns. I ran some commands to verify the status on the KMS host and it seems to be fine.

Now I would like to ask...let's say...after finishing a Windows 7 client installation.... Do I need to do something to make that Windows 7 client to be KMS client? Also, do I need to take any actions at all to activate the windows 7 license on the client?
( for example, click on the "activation link in the Computer properties") Or is it automatically access to the KMS host?

How about the Office Pro? On the same Win7 running KMS host for Win7 to be Office KMS host as well? Do I need to install Office on the KMS host again? What do I need to do to make the client to act as a kms client? Or is it also running automatically?


Thank you very much in advance, and hope you can share your ideas.

The issue:

* Was getting google search result redirects (seemes fixed after changing my DNS server)

* Cannot start Windows Defender (message: The Windows Security Center Service can't be started.)

* Cannot start Windoes Security Center Service

* Cannot start Microsoft Security Essentials (appears for a brief moment before evaporating)

A:How do I activate windows on a Dell laptop which came with pre installed genuine windows 8.

It is possible  you have a pirated copy of Windows. Computers with a factory installed legal copy of Windows do not need to be activated. The activation code for Windows 8 is located in the system BIOS and is read automatically. You can check the code by using one of the utilities that will extract it from the BIOS. If there is a code, contact Microsoft and ask them if the code is valid.

Hi Everyone,  I just swapped out the hard drive in my ThinkPad T510 and replaced it with a zippy SSD.I installed a fresh copy of Windows 10 thinking I have my Windows 7 COA (clearly visible under my battery).But I was unable to activate Windows 10. I called Microsoft and they said yes, I have a geniune copy of Windows 7 BUT that the OEM (Lenovo) was blocking the activation. I called Lenovo and they said it's a Microsoft issue. I called Lenovo again and they said I needed to pay $45 for recovery discs because my "real" Windows 7 code was secreted in a system board, and once I retrieved that, I would have to install Windows 7 on my new SSD, then upgrade to Windows 10 and the activation would take. Um, really? Isn't there an easier (and cheaper) way to accomplish this? Again, my Windows 7 COA is clearly visible under my battery but it didn't work. What am I doing wrong? And can anyone out there make it right? Thank you so much!

A:I can not activate Windows

The "unknown" errror 0x800700d8 refers to Windows not being able to process system files.

This could be due to outdated Intel Rapid Storage Technology drivers.

Alternatively, a corrupted update.. check by running sfc and dism .. David has a handy script here:

Let me know the results of that... if that passes we can try rebuilding the licencing store otherwise a refresh may have to be done with a clean ISO download.

Good luck.

So i booted into safe mode, and messed around with the key in the regedit which allowed me to activate windows when i logged on. So it came up with the options, i tried the internet one but it said it can't connect even though my internet is connected ect. So i opted with the telephone option. It gave me the number, so i ring it, it comes up with the automated voice asking for the Instalation ID.

Then it said " Error, we couldn't activate the ID or something like that and told me i might be a victim of piracy blah blah blah.

A:Can't Activate Windows

That does not sound correct. Either the Product Key is valid or it is not. Getting a new CD is not going to fix an invalid Product Key.

Do you have a Microsoft Product Label with a Product Key on it? Where are you getting the characters for the Product Key from?

I just scrued up my Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit service pack 1. I did format and downloaded the same windows from internet only that was service pack 2. and i tryed to activate my windows with the product key that i found under my pc on microsoft sticker. it told me that it is wrong key. Is the problem that i had service pack 1 before or the new windows that i downloaded is bad copy?

A:Cant activate windows

The problem could be that it's SP2 vs SP1 (but probably not as long as it is the same version and bit size as what was originally installed) or it could simply be that the system thinks the product key is already in use (by your computer) and thinks you're trying to re-install it on another computer. I believe the download is probably just fine (and I don't want to know how you got it because I suspect I know how you got it).

Try the manual activation process and see if that works:

To manually activate, go to start, search box and type in slui 4 and enter. Enter your country and press next. You'll be on a screen with a phone number and a bunch of codes at the bottom. Call the number and wade through the automated prompts until you reach a human. Have your product code handy as it will be requested. Explain the situation (but don't volunteer how you came to get the disk) but it's the same PC and only installed on that one PC. They should give you a code to enter on that screen to activate Vista.


I hope this helps.


Good luck!

Hi Everyone,

I am having an issue with activating Windows 10 Pro.

When I first purchased my new laptop it came with Windows 8.1. However I needed to upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro (due to using the laptop in a business environment).

I suspect that changing to Windows 8.1 Pro changed my product key, which has now affected my ability to activate Windows 10 Pro.

Here is the screen that I see when I look at whether or not Windows is activated -



When I click on the 'Error details' link I see the following -



If I look at the current product key (or at least the last five digits) it does not match my old key (as obtained using Balarc Advisor).



Furthermore if I attempt to change the Product Key by substituting the key that I obtained from Balarc Advisor before performing the upgrade it is rejected.

If anybody has any suggestions on how to overcome this issue they will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Davo

  Hello,
     I have been using Windows 7 for a few months now.  I upgraded back in November 2009 and it was activated.  I boot my PC today and I am suddenly getting messages saying I need to activate Windows and the Activation server determined that the specified key could not be used.  Nothing has changed so why do I suddenly need to activate again and why does it fail when I try to?

A:Windows 7 is asking to activate again?

  I bought a Windows 7 Ultimate upgrade from Best Buy.  I'm quite sure it's legal, as it had activated already when I initially installed it.  It's just now saying that it needs to be activated. 
HiSince the online activation failed, you will need to perform the activation manually.
1. Press the Windows Logo Key+R. This will bring up the Run dialog box.2. In the Open: box, type   slui 4  and press OK. This will start the manual activation wizard. 3. Select your Country in the drop down menu and click Next.4. The wizard will display a Toll Free phone number. Leave the wizard open on the computer and call that phone number.You will be given some recorded options. Select the option to talk to a live representative.

Hey guys n gals, my mom got a new computer few months back and it came with xp preloaded with the windows 7 cd in it(was a double bundle to upgrade if you wanted)

She really likes xp and doesn't welcome change much. So I decided to take the windows 7 cd to install on my computer but the cd key won't verify and keeps giving me the '3 days to activate' thing.

Is there any way for me to actually use windows 7 since its just wasted sitting there collecting dust, or is there some sort of key embedded on her motherboard to verify that THAT windows 7 will only work on THAT computer?

Thanks in advance.

Using an AMD Athlon Dual Core x64 4200+ 2.2ghz, 2.2 gigs of ram, radeon hd 4670, 300watt psu if any of this matters.

And if its possible for me to run windows 7 with that cd, how does my 2gigs of ram work into it? Would I be able to install the 64 bit version and actually play some recent games okay, even on low settings(like skyrim, BF3, etc?) it's an older computer but supports 64 bit vista, and the windows 7 upgrade advisor tool said everything was fine to upgrade.

A:Can't activate windows 7

It will run fine. If you have the Gigs, why not make a small partition of about 30 gigs or so, install 7 there, and test it out. But don`t activate it. That way you don`t have to get rid of your older system yet. Any questions, just ask. There is a wealth of knowledge here.

My bad, I re-read and saw you already put it on your pc.

A:I Cant Activate my windows pls help

I'm no expert, Noel is; but I would like you to check and see if you have KB971033 installed in Windows updates.

Have you installed all of Windows 7 Updates?

Have you used any kind of registry cleaners of any kind?

Using this tutorial by Brink would make you log a lot easier to read.

I just turned on my wifes laptop top after months and it is asking to be activated with an error 0x8007041D.. activation fails.   HP tells me to call MS.. MS tells me to call HP.   I was hoping to upgrade it to windows 10 but it looks like it needs to be activated first..  do i have to pay HP to get a valid license to get the upgrade done?

Hi,

My laptop comes with Windows 8.1 pre-installed, ShowKeyPlus seems to confirm it:


Code:
Windows Product Key Information
Product Name: Windows 8.1
Product ID: 00259-60600-00001-AA950

OEM Key: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-82M99
OEM Edition: Win 8.1 RTM CoreSingleLanguage OEM:DM


But when I install Windows 8.1 (Core) it does not detect the key. I used the generic key to install. When I try to activate with the key from BIOS it says "That key can't be used to activate this edition of Windows. Please try a different key."

I wonder what version can it be used to activate? Windows 8.1 Pro?

I have tried booting the installation media and use the [BIOS] key there but it won't work.

I built a system a few months ago and things were running great.  Then I noticed Chrome was acting oddly and I got a pop up that said my copy of Windows 7 is not genuine and I need to activate.  I was on the phone with Microsoft and the OEM version key I bought is legit. We tried a number of different things and he said he couldn't do anymore and I would have to pay for further service.  I am getting error code 0x80070005.  I am guessing it is malware.  I tried to use some of Microsoft's tools but no luck.  The ball is your court......

Alright so, a while back i for some absent minded reason upgraded to Windows 8 for fun. Pretty sure i was drunk or something. It completely broke my computer in 100 ways and i hated it, so i grabbed my DVD and went back to Win7. Only problem is, it keeps telling me invalid key. When i called Customer Support, i was told i have to re-buy Windows 7 because i wiped my HDD when Win8 installed.

Now SURELY there is some way for me to get Windows 7 back without spending tons of money, especially since i have already paid the outrageous price for Ultimate once. I'm not really understanding why it won't let me use the key.

A:Cannot activate Windows 7

A little more info is needed.
Is your system from a major manufacturer like Dell or HP?
If so was the DVD you used to do the reinstall from that major manufacturer?
Was the Key you used from the COA sticker on that system?
Was the DVD you used the SAME type, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate, as what is on that COA sticker?

Arsalan1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Microsoft is passing the buck as usual, and is not giving you accurate information. HP keeps no records of individual product keys associated with individual PCs.  So, HP has no way of telling you the product key for your PC. However, you can download and run this utility, as it will retrieve the product key embedded into the UEFI firmware of the motherboard of your PC: Download Windows OEM Product Key Tool 1.0.0.1Good Luck

My problem is this: We had error message 0x800700c1 on the grandkids computer. Called the experts to fix it, they couldn?t do it. We were running Windows XP Home 2002 service pack 2. I had a go at it myself and was lucky to get trough safe mode start up to get the original XP install disk to work. I clicked on the repair option and everything was fine. I put in the product key which was accepted and I was requested to restart the computer. I felt real smart that I?d done ok when the professionals couldn?t. So I rebooted and the message appeared: Microsoft has to activate this product before you can log on, do you want to activate now? I clicked yes and the picture of the former desktop background appeared and 30 minutes later nothing had changed. No activation, no notification to call tech help, nothing. I then re booted in safe mode with internet only to get the same message, Microsoft has to activate-----. This is the second time this install disc has been used and there should not be a problem with it. Can somebody help, please?

I brought a laptop which is preloaded with windows 8.1 also this laptop having fully bloatware. So i decided to download official windows 8.1 latest build 9600 and install it manually . Finally i download it and removed all the partitions even i removed recovery partition with out taking back up because i don't need it, after installation i am unable to activate i know they key is place on the bios which is automatically activate the windows but its not activating don't know why ? So please anybody help me how can i activate my windows ?
 

A:how to activate windows 8.1

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy
2. When you say you decided to download the
official windows 8.1 latest build 9600 Click to expand...

I am unsure of what you mean, the latest 8.1 download from Microsoft applicable to your computer, if it was NOT already installed is the 8.1.1 update
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/whats-new

and of course the usual windows updates since.

3. I am unsure of what or indeed from where - you downloaded this
official windows 8.1 latest build 9600 Click to expand...

BUT if you used this procedure
http://www.cnet.com/uk/how-to/how-to-download-the-official-microsoft-windows-8-1-iso/

then this is why it will not work - please see link - why will it not activate
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/upgrade-product-key-only

4. The activation procedure from the key embedded in the firmware does NOT apply to the procedure you have used

5. I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news but in view of this -
Finally i download it and removed all the partitions even i removed recovery partition with out taking back up because i don't need itClick to expand...

which I have to say was unwise, as the result has shown you DID. Even if you were going to try the procedure you should have created a complete system image to restore from - there is IMHO now NO WAY of recovery - without ordering recovery discs from the laptop manufacturer.

The reason is that the key for the licence authorisation embedded in the firmware of the laptop i... Read more

A "new" computer does not come with Windows XP. It comes with Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Can you be more specific how and where you obtained that computer?

I had my hardrive wiped after the laptop was running slowHP Windows 8.1 ProNow i cannot activate windows nor pull my windows product key even with technical support line and it was preinstalled.How do I get the product key back?

A:Activate Windows

Hi blmc, It is because the key is actually connected to the motherboard, you should have some sort of sticker saying what version of windows with the product key on the computer somewhere (Possibly underneath the battery on certain models of laptops) However if you are still not able to find it there is a freeware application that you are able to download and it will rip the key off your motherboard its called ProduKey. You will run and it will come up with the windows OEM key that you copy and paste into your system to activate it I hope this helps and please reply if you need anymore help! - Sarasona

I have a problem. I cant access Windows XP because it says that it needs to be activated. Well I cant activate it since I dont have access and my internet isn't hooked up yet. I could also do it over the phone, but I would rather just do it with the internet. Is there anyway I could bypass this message and activate windows so I could use my operating system?
