Remove Daemon and restart your PC, then reactivate again, everything will be ok.

Indeed, problem solved

Freebird is right.
If you have Daemon Tools installed, you should first uninstall it and then try to activate.

I have the same problem as the as the thread starter.

Mine is slightly different as I didn't put in the Key when I installed. I didn't think it was needed and that I could just put it in at activation screen... I have been using it for over a week now and I really don't want to have start over again!
Is there anyway I can put in my key?

omg. I get same error message when I try to change product key. I have activated this copy perfectly 3 times now so theres nothing wrong with files or key. Those 3 times have been reinstalls, I only ever used this key on this machine.

EDIT: When I go to the Ms website to view my Key, it changes every time!! Where do I find the one they gave me at the start? I did write it down but then I got rid of it after first install, because I though I could see it again.

I think its latest one. Where can I find build number? I am still trying those keys, but none are activating.

EDIT: build 7100

EDIT2: I seem to remember using the same key the previous 2 times and that worked both times. Is there anyway to find this one? I have checked the emails I got from MS but it's not there. I remember the second time round I looked on the same page that I am doing now.

There is a small program called, KeyFinder 2.0 which will find and show you the KEY used to install. 7100 is RC and the REAL Technet or MSDN keys probably will not activate. I have also found that (MY TECHNET KEY will only work on a CLEAN INSTALL. ) using the old RTM Clean install that had
13 days left, tried via slmgr.vbs -ipk to install (NOT Invalid KEY can not activate),
used System chang key. still Invalid Key. set up for Clean install (dual Boot), same key inserted when installing and VOILA it activated.

well if I can't activate my cd key then its gunna have to be cracked. It's pathetic that I have a cd key that I cannot use after installing all these programs and spending a week getting it how I want it. The activation only popped up for the first time today also... There must be some way. And how can I find my key if I never used? I used twice on previous installs but this is a fresh one and I didn't put it into the installation screen.

after 30 days, will it not just ask for a cd key? I can write it down and then put it in.
