[SOLVED] License error

Q: [SOLVED] License error

I had windwos xp home installed and I wanted to be able to use the remote desktop feature. So I found a tutorial that explained how to install this feature by changing registry values. This didn't end up working for me BUT I left the values I had changed the same and not backed up the registry before changing them Then I tried to install XP SP3 (automatic updates) and after it installed and the Welcome screen came up I got this message:

A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the license for this computer. Error Code: 0x80004005

These are the two sites I used to try to get Remote desktop to work (you can read the tutorial I used):

Tutorial

Used this site to chnage registry values

I also tried to use the microsoft support site to fix the issue but the method I used didn't work.

I don't think any of this is illegal. I have a Windows XP and Professional CD. Also note that I can't lose any of the data on the hard drive (no reinstalls). Thanks for any help.

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] License error

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.)

G'Day Darkfox,

Try powering up the computer from a 'Cold Start', while continually tapping the F8 Key.
In the "Safe Mode" Menu select the option "Last Known Good Configuration", and follow the on-screen prompts.

If this method fails, repeat the procedure to get you into Safe Mode, and use the in-built System Restore feature to restore the computer back to a time/date before you fiddled with the Registry.

Post back with the outcome.

Kind Regards,

Hi,
Our company buy almost 6 months ago the Microsoft Action Pack that includes Visual Studio 2013 with online login to Access the program.  A few days ago I started having this error message and I cannot access the application anymore. 
Any advice on how to fix this?  I already contacted the MSDN support and they ask me to create a topic in this forum for help.  Or they will have to ask me for small fee($$$) to resolve their problem.

Hi folks,
I am working with a company (that I have actually worked with for over 10 years on a consulting basis) and we are auditing our Microsoft Windows Server and server product licenses and preparing to upgrade Windows Server products.  We have ran into a snag, where the former System Administrator left the company a few years ago, however it was understood that the information regarding the VLSC was transferred to another partner in the company.  A new Systems Administrator has taken over, and we have determined that we do not have this information, including a Microsoft account username and password to access the VLSC and our Windows Server 2008R2 product keys, license agreements, SKUs, and downloads.  Unfortunately, the situation became took a turn for the worse about three months ago when the partner that had this information passed away.  No one at the company has access to this login information.  I currently administer most of their licensing, and have access to their much of their licensing information, download, product keys, etc., but I am clearly missing some very important ones.  I called Microsoft and they were of no assistance.  Since I am an administrator on the network, I can create a mailbox that the VLSC was probably originally registered under, however the VLSC says that Microsoft account is not even valid, not even prompting for the password.

Hello,

This machine is a very common model in my environment and I have done many fresh windows installations using the OEM license key without issue. however, on this particular machine, it reports it cannot activate because it cannot contact the KMS for activation.
Again, to clarify, this is the OEM product key that has been automatically pulled over from UEFI and NOT a MAK/KMS key.


I've run diagnostics as typically requested for this type of issue and can provide any additional information you might need. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated!!

I have been using virtual box for about 6 months now and it has given me many problems I have been able to fix until now.
There have been other problems other than this but those are for another time.
Every month windows xp would say that I have 30 days to activate windows.
By the end of the 30 days I would be trapped in this endless loop of it telling me that the 30 day period was up and to activate it now. Then if I said yes it would say windows is already activated, bringing me back to the login screen thus beginning the endless cycle again.
I ended up having to every month having to go into safe mode, type in command prompt
regsvr32 regwizc.dll
regsvr32 licdll.dll
rundll32.exe syssetup, SetupOobeBnk

And then that would reset the licensing system or something and I would be ok for another month
For some reason this month it shows something different. It shows:
A problem is preventing Windows from accurately checking the status of the license for this computer. To proceed you copy of Windows must be activated with Microsoft.
Do you want to activate Windows now?

Then it gives me the endless loop except this time running the 3 commands into safe mode command prompt doesn't fix it.
Also note that I had recently switched computers as one died and transferred over the virtual box files to virtual box on the new computer.

Any suggestions?
Thanks.

In the past year I upgraded my Dell 8100 from Windows ME to XP Pro and added a new hard drive. The old hard drive is now my F: drive and contains music downloaded prior to the upgrade. When I try to play this music I get an error message that says I do not have a license to play the old music (error code 274B).

I have tried to locate the licenses on the F: drive with no success. The music is "legal" and I no longer can find the original CD's to reinstall them.

How do I resolve this problem??

On backing up MSN Music licenses from http://www.corti.com/weblogsascha/ca...spx/Technology

Quote:




Jake recently asked me if the MSN Music service could be used as a replacement for the "license back-up" function of the Windows Media Player - as licenses for purchased music can be re-downloaded from the MSN Music service. My answer was that both work - with proves to be inaccurate. Thanks, Jake for the update:

<quoted from MSN Music support mail>
Please note that the licenses of MSN Music content cannot be backed up. If you wish to verify this, please perform the following steps:

1. Open Windows Media Player .
2. Go to the MSN Music library .
3. Right-click one of the MSN Music files.
4. Click 'Properties' then the 'License' tab. Please check the license details of the file.

There is no need to worry, Jake. The licenses can be downloaded from the server. All you need to do is play the MSN Music content, sign in to the MSN Music service when prompted to do so, and then click 'I own this song' to initiate the download. You can do this after you've restored your PC. Please make sure, though, that before you attempt to download the licenses, the computer is properly configured for MSN Music.

The computer I am having an issue with is running Windows 7 32bit. It is up to date. When trying to turn queries in Excel 2010 it gets an ODBC License Unhanded Error. The same file works in Excel 2000. I will attach the screen shots of the errors. Other testing I have done is put excel 2010 on an XP computer, and it worked there. I put it on another windows 7 computer that has a fresh install, and it still doesn't work.

Not sure where to look now or what is going on with these errors searched online and couldn't find anything.

A:ODBC License Unhanded Error

When you installed the driver, did you remember to right-click and "Run As Administrator" to elevate your privileges?

Windows 7 uses the UAC (User Access Control) and user applications, including the Windows Shell, are then started with a restricted token, resulting in a reduced privilege environment even under an Administrator account. When an application requests higher privileges or "Run as administrator" is clicked, UAC will prompt for confirmation and, if consent is given, start the process using the unrestricted token.[5]

Running with restricted tokens can result in the registry not being properly updated during installation.

You might even try running Excel "As Administrator" and see if that works.

If it does, you probably need to re-install your driver.

I have an HP IMC Basic 50 node edition software installed from last summer and a valid paid license and it has been working fine for 9 months.  It is installed on a virtual server Win2008R2 Std. and my hunch is that the MAC for the physical server is tied somehow to the license code.  I moved this virtual a couple of months ago to another physical 2012R2 server, and the virtual server has not been restarted since.  So, after an extended power outage, where I had to shutdown the physical before the UPS went caput, I booted it up, and all appears well, but when I use IE to get back into IMC, I get the Invalid license error code:50904.  It appears possibly my license or something has gotten whack?  The license file appears fine, but it's obviously not liking things.  I went through the steps to download a new license and try again, but to no avail.  Does anyone know who I can contact or how I can get a license that will work.  When I go to HPE site, it says regular HP support helps for IMC.  I can't seem to find a number or contact at HP that will get me where I need to be.  If you know of a way to get help, it would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you,  ToneWalker

I CAN'T boot into "safe mode" either (all of the solutions to this problem I have found online assume I can boot in safe mode). When I try, the "safe mode" window appears. However, inside of it a window that says "USERINIT.EXE" is open and rapidly scrolling as if it where in an infinite loop.

Is there some way I can use the "Recovery Console" to delete a file and perhaps force a "Repair Install"? Would a "Repair Install" possibly fix this? I'm really in a bad situation here. Can anyone help me?

Sincerest of thanks, -Rob

Deploying a Windows 8.1 Enterprise image on Dell Venue 11 (5130 atom version)
Created an UEFI FAT32 USB drive (http://rufus.akeo.ie/?locale=en_US)
I replaced sources\install.wim with a customized Windows 8.1 image.
The customized image is 4,6GB large so i had to split it into 2 .swm files because of the FAT32 4GB limitation.
Setup is starting and when i want to install, the following error occured and i have to cancel the installation.
"Windows cannot find the Microsoft Software License Terms.  Make sure the installation sources are valid and restart the installation"
is there a file which points to the license terms that i can modify or something like that??

A:Windows 8.1 install from USB with multiple swm files license terms error

Hi MartinOtter,
Windows 8 and 8.1 Setup does not support split .wim files, so this might have been the original problem. The TechNet article "Split a Windows Image (.swm) File to Span Across Multiple DVDs"
has this note:
In Windows 8.1 and Windows 8, Windows Setup does not support installing a split .wim file.
And later it states:

You can apply the file to your destination computers only by using the /Apply-Image option in the DISM tool.

If you are still having issues with this deployment while using a .wim that isn't split, can you
check the log files?

Hope this helps,

Hi, First time poster here. I am just recently having issues with my computer saying windows it not genuine. I found this forum through another thread of a person who had basically the exact same issues as I did here: Windows Genuine and Activation Issue

I too bought this PC originally from best buy or some place, and it came with no windows CD or anything. I went 2 years without formatting, finally I got sick of it and when I installed my new SSD I finally had to do it. The best advice I found was doing the same as OP, downloading the copy of windows from digital rivers and entering in my windows key(which I had lost as well but recovered using one of the software tools).

I installed windows about 4-5 weeks ago, I have rebooted many times since and only in the last day did it start giving me this same windows it not genuine error. Upon trying to validate my key it will error out, and I get the same

code:
0xc004F063
the software licensing service reported that the computer BIOS is missing a required license

How can I take this key from the side of my computer case and make windows genuine again? Someone in another post I found said something about a command "wmic bios get serialnumber" and thats the same exact number that comes up thats on the side of my case. Is this the right one, or should I be looking inside the case for ANOTHER key that fits the windows key length? The key off the side of my machine is only about 10 digits and I am un sure ...

A:Windows not Genuine, Validating gives error 0xc004F063 Bios license

Sorry for posting in haste without taking the time to properly look over everything. I found ANOTHER sticker which had the proper key further back on my computer base that was listed as win7 home premium OA HP with a totally different windows key which I just entered via the system change product key and it authenticated as genuine. Big thank you to this community for the knowledge that was already right in front of my face!

For others having this issue, Hopefully your sticker is still intact and readable. If you are getting this same issue, Just find the sticker on your computer or laptop(apparently laptop fades WAY quicker if not covered up by something to make it more long lasting) and enter the OA key that looks exactly like windows key into the change product key option on System.

I have AVG 9 (not free), upgraded from 8.5 a few weeks ago. On Dec. 6 it stopped working - even though my license doesn't expire until Dec. 6, 2010, the license is now shown as expired. Reactivating it doesn't help, copying and pasting from the email I received does nothing.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the program, the license is still showing as expired.

I've gotten no response from AVG at all. Can anyone suggest the next step?

Hi

My friend asked me to look at her daughter's computer. It's a Compaq Presario.

It's pretty much hosed. I cannot get it to come up at all. I tried everything and I'm now looking at reloading Windows. I have all the software that came with it, and I have a copy of XP home, but I can't find anything with the license key information.

The F10 recovery does not work. F8 does not work. I cannot get Windows to load at all.

Does anyone know how I can find out what the license key is? Will HP give me that info? I can call them....but I just hate talking with their tech support.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I have a question about Windows licenses. Specifically Win XP but applies to any version really.

A customer brings me a computer that has Windows XP installed on it and he has a disc, but he didn't bring it with him. If I were to do a repair install on it using my own disc, will this override the license on the computer? Or is it possible to do a repair install over another installed copy, but have the customer still retain his key as the installed version?

A:[SOLVED] License

As long as you have the same Type of XP (eg) Pro, Home or MSE it shouldn't ask for a product key. But the customer should always bring their disc anyways.

I am getting "Microsoft Office Professional 2010 cannot verify the license for this product. You should repair the Office program by using Control Panel." error this morning after booting up the system.

There was a MSFT update that ran last night, and I'm suspicious of it being the trigger of the error.

I have tried the "repair" option for MSO 2010, and have also re-entered the "key", to no avail.

Hi there, welcome to the board!

Have you tried uninstalling the update? Do so from the Control Panel. There's a button which will toggle showing updates. I'm not aware of any updates which will do this though. I'd start there, maybe trying to open in safe mode, but that seems like a stretch.

Is there an easy way to get a list of all the registration numbers and such from each program without going into each one individually and digging them out??

Any help would be appreciated - I have to have this done by May 16th.

This may sound like a stupid question, but I'd just like to be sure.

I have a Windows 7 Ultimate OEM disc that I bought when I was building a PC a few years ago. I have obviously used my one OEM license on the computer I built. I have recently purchased a license for Windows 7 Ultimate, but do not have a disc. Is it completely legit to use my OEM disc to install Windows 7, and the change the product key to my new license, or do I have to buy another disc as well?
Just tryin to play on the legal side haha.

A:[SOLVED] OEM License Question

I think that's perfectly acceptable.

I just happen to have the W8 OEM downgrade page open in another tab, where (for downgrading from W8 to W7, obviously) it states:

Quote:




The downgrade process

Follow these steps to downgrade to a previous version of Windows software:

Obtain genuine Windows media and a corresponding product key for the version of Windows that is eligible for downgrade.
The media should come from a prior legally licensed version from the OEM or retail channels.
Qualified OEMs have the option to distribute downgrade media and product keys directly to end users, per end user request.
End users who are licensed separately through Microsoft Volume Licensing (VL) may provide their VL media and key to a system builder to facilitate the downgrade on their own systems.
Insert the downgrade-eligible version of Windows media in the CD drive and follow the installation instructions.
Type the product key.
If the software was previously activated, you will not be able to activate it online. In this case, the appropriate local Activation Support phone number will be displayed. Call the number and explain the circumstances. When it is determined that the end user has an eligible Windows license, the customer service representative will provide a single-use activation code to activate the software. Please note that Microsoft does not provide a full product key in this scenario.

The reasons why I want to do this is so I can have 1 HD for gaming, and another for programming (I am also looking into the programming HD dual booting with Ubuntu which is why I am looking into swapping out the master HDs).

Does Vista allow this? I know I have to confirm its legality online, which it is. I am just wondering if it will recognize that I swap between the two different HDs with vista on them. The computer will remain the same of course. Is this allowed?

Thanks.

No, that copy is OEM which is legally bound to the old emachine.
