Hmmm - maybe not....

Please run the following commands, and post the results.....

DIR %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft
DIR %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform
ICACLS %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft
ICACLS %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareProtectionPlatform


Here are some instructions to make life easier :)
1) To open an Elevated Command Prompt Window (the ECP window), click on Start, All Programs, Accessories – then right-click on Command Prompt, and select Run as Administrator. Accept the UAC prompt.
2) To run the commands easier, highlight the block of commands, and right-click on the highlight – select Copy. In the CP Window, click on the black/white icon at top left – select Paste. The commands will run but may not complete the last command, so hit the Enter Key once.
3) To copy the results... click on the Black/White icon in the top left, and select Edit... 'Select All', and hit the Enter key - then use Ctrl+V or r-click+Paste to paste it into your response.

OK - so you actually appear to have run that solution back on 14th July :)

The problem is that the file wasn't rebuilt for whatever reason, at the time.

We have to try and isolate the cause, and get it going again....


Please run the following command from an Elevated Command Prompt window(1)

Copy and paste set of commands below into the window – once completed, hit the Enter Key to ensure that the last command has run (2)

REG QUERY HKU
REG QUERY HKU\S-1-5-20
REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-20"
REG QUERY "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList"
sc sdshow plugplay
REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-18" /S
REG QUERY "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\S-1-5-19" /S



Copy the whole output to your response(3)

Hi there
try this

Enter cmd mode in administrator mode.
type SLUI 3 (Space between SLUI and the 3)

At the popup enter the serial number. Now if your serial number is OK it will activate.

(I don't know if this works for HOME PREMIUM, works for ENTERPRISE, ULTIMATE AND PRO but try it).

Cheers

Hi there
Sorry then - I'm out of options -- works on my system. You can see the screenshot in my first post on this topic. Note you enter the command in LOWER CASE -- although I don't think that should make any difference --or try slui.exe 3

Perhaps a W7 re-install.

Cheers
