Windows 7 Pro x64 Sp1
unable to get Windows 7 to activate with key. error 0xC004F074

I had activated the Windows 7 x64 Sp1 yesterday, when I came back this morning, all the devices ( I worked on two yesterday ) reverted back to the message "This copy of Windows is not genuine." Can anyone provide assistance?

Here is the MGADiag report...

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit sp1

Hi & welcome to the Forum.

You have Windows License Type: KMS Client. This is for multi user companies that purchase a license key for multi computer use. It is not for ordinary home users.

Where did you get this copy of Windows from?.

Windows 7 Pro x64 Sp1

I have been working on a handful of devices for a customer that were all previously set up by their last IT vendor. She said they had been using it for almost a year until the device called for the Windows License again. I have Windows 7 Licenses ready to go, but I'd rather not use ones that are unassigned unless I have to.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit sp1

That seems explain it. With those multi user licenses such as the KMS Client one, MS check every now & then to see if the license is current & valid & as far as I know companies that use them pay a yearly license fee, so if it not renewed or lapses then it becomes invalid.

So it seems that you will have to use one of your reserve Windows licences.

Windows 7 Pro x64 Sp1
used another license

I was able to get windows 7 activated - now the only problem is I can't download updates from the Windows Update tool and only via "checking for updates online". I will research it and open a new thread if needed...

Thanks Everyone.

Might be that a group policy restriction is in place on the server.
