Windows 7: activation weirdness.

i didn't think the ip change change would cause this, but it's the only thing i could think of.anyway, i did get it to activate(again) by just re-entering the code. but i would still like an explanation for why this happened.

Point blank, yes or no; are you trying to use the same activation key to activate 2 separate PCs?

So basically, you set the computer up at your house. Then you moved it to his house. It says it will take the key, but sometime later it rejects it. Correct? What about what Theog suggested? That is the only thing I can think of at this point.

correct. i went to the msdnaa website and i didn't find anything that would explain why it would reject the key.

note: i did get it to activate by reinserting the same key i used when i installed it, but i still want to figure out why windows rejected the key in the first place, that should never happen.

So it is currently activated? A number of things could cause it, including it not actually activating. When you install it, it ask if you want it to automatically activate as soon as its connected to the internet (set to do this by default). I can only assume, it didn't go ahead and activate. Sometimes, its best to just leave well enough alone. This is definitely a situation where we can never be sure of the actual answer.

Does anybody else have access to this msdnaa subscription ? Could anyone else have got this key previously & installed it on another computer ?
