Windows 7: 'This copy of Windows is not activated.' when it is...

28 Oct 2009   #11

Something funny about MS here.

My upgrade is activated. It says it's activated, in Windows.
I bought the software from Amazon. it's genuine. Microsoft registered it as genuine.
But when I went online for a bit of minor tech support, MS's server came back and told me that it wasn't registered yet.
I'd put in the activation number, which came from MS, that shows on the computer right next to the panel that says it's activated, but MS support don't seem to recognise it.
I don't think their database is working properly, yet.
