Windows 7: Upgrade Problems (7022 -> 7077)

Upgrade Problems (7022 -> 7077)

Installed the update (not a clean install). After about 1.5 hours, everything was back up and went into 7MC. Asked if I wanted to use previous settings, I said yes. Get a Playtime install screen, then get error (although playtime was already installed). Went to the next screen and get my PID key request, type it in and says error (I know which keys to use, installed it about 5 times now).

Try several different options as far as uninstalling playtime, try going through 7MC setup, continue to get the error.

My question is, will the PID registration automatically fail if Playtime is not installed. I'm worried that I now have a useless PID as some others have reported. Installing Windows Vista Home Premium from the reinstall disks hoping I can get the PID to work. If not....wife is gonna kill me.

Did you try just skipping it? I have yet to enter the PID while updating to a new version. I've always just clicked 'next' and put it in after the upgrade finished.

The upgrade had finished. I was entering 7MC for the first time after the upgrade had completed (sorry if I wasn't clear on that).

And he was saying Skip entering the PID and / or when the error is encountered just skip installation of Playready....
