Windows 7: The product key you typed cannot be used to activate Windows


21 Dec 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
 
 
The product key you typed cannot be used to activate Windows

The full error is "The product key you typed cannot be used to activate Windows on this computer" but it wouldn't fit in the title. I'm running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit and when trying to acticate it I get this error. I get the same thing when trying to activate by phone. I bought this from Microsoft, so I know it is genuine. I used Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic tool (1.9.0027.0) to evaluate my system. This is what it gave me:

Hi,

Try the phone activation service again, but this time hold for a real person to answer:

1. Click Start, and in the Search box type : slui.exe 4
2. Press ENTER on your Keyboard
3. Select your Country.
4. Select the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person.

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,
Golden

I tried the phone activation again and it worked, maybe I entered the number wrong the first time.
