Mac and parallels

I just updated parallels and I am getting a message that my copy of Windows 7 is not genuine.

Can you help? Where do I go to fix the problem.

I am new to Windows on my Mac...

Thanks, Keith

If you're not getting the message that your OS is not genuine, then what's the problem?

You must buy the "genuine" copy of the OS, where did you get it?

You need to activate it. Click on the key (or search activation) and activate. If it doesn't work, do it by phone.

Strange, doesn't it require a key?

Not if it was already activated.

Hm, and if no key then there is no way to activate...

Alas, we have to wait for the results to come in.
