Windows 7: Windows 7 RC is not genuine messages/pop ups, WHY?

Windows 7 RC is not genuine messages/pop ups, WHY?

I just started getting Windows is not genuine messages starting this morning
on both my netbook and desktop. I have never downloaded a crack or any of that kind of crap, so have other window 7 RC users started getting this message to?

When I go online to fix the problem I noticed it says this:
http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/dow...s.aspx?Error=6

Quote:
If you are running Windows 7 Beta or the Windows 7 Release Candidate (RC), you are seeing this message because the product is not yet available for purchase. Learn more about Windows 7.
So did Windows just start showing this on all Windows 7 RC's or what?

I got my registration keys from windows, and downloaded from there. Never downloaded from a torrent site. I've had Windows 7 RC on both my netbook and desktop since it came out in May, and never had an issue until now. SO?

You didnt activate windows 7 rc. To activate it plz follow these steps:

Start> Contraol Panel > System
on window of system and security -the last two lines you will find instructions to
activate your copy....

I am astonished it is a free copy and need validation..what a hell microsoft

Windows 7 RC
 
 

It's not working. It says:

You Must Activate Today: Activate Windows Now!
Product Key: 00000-000-0000000-00000(other numbers are listed here not 0's) Change Product Key

but when i click to activate it, it tells me to go online and activate it now, and once I do it, it just gives me this error: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/dow...s.aspx?Error=6 When I click validate on the site and it checks to validate it, it goes back to the same error message. I'm pretty sure I activated both versions with the product/activation key assigned to me, when I installed them back in May.

If you installed it back in may what is the version you installed. goto search at type winver. If it is 7000 that is your problem. If higher than 7000 where did you download the ISO from?
