Windows 7: SLUI.exe - Cannot Create a file that already exists (800700B7)

SLUI.exe - Cannot Create a file that already exists (800700B7)

Hi guys,

I can't active my PC. For some reason when I run SLUI.exe (with the 3 parameter as well) it give the Cannot Create File error. I have looked around the internet and found topics saying to run chkdsk as well as sfc /scannow. But it doesn't work. For this reason, I cannot active my Windows and I think due to this I can't use the accounts created in this PC. (Only the administrator works 100%)

What should I do to fix this? A clean install is not an option because all my Sata ports (Other than the one that I am using for HDD) are dead and I have no proper DVD ROM. Is there a way to do this without the physical repair disk or should I get an ISO and just run that?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I ran the slui.exe. It doesn't work.


My other accounts that was created after installation doesn't work properly. (Can't run anything, problem accessing and running files etc.)

To fix the slui.exe problem I ran the "ChkDsk" and the "sfc /scannow". It had no effect.

I'm pretty sure that I installed SP-1. I fully updated my Windows copy while running in trial mode.

Why run SLUI, is it a new clean install?

Nope, its nearly 2 weeks old.

I did my own research with the tokens.dat and the error code by Slmgr.vbs (Error code 0x2a 0x800700B7)
Sorry I didn't give those. I just tried out SLMGR.vbs and I realized the extra 0x2a.
Either way, I read on the Microsoft support forums that a guy installed SP1 and windows tried auto activating. The old key conflicted with Windows 7 -SP1. (Not sure why.) I'll try uninstalling SP1 and then re-activive with a proper key and re install later on.

Edit:
That didn't work either. I'll have to find a fix fast.
