You have a system builder version, the key will be on its packaging that came with the discs.

Did you run those commands in the screenshot??

The "licence store" i was referring to is part of your system, and everybody elses , essentially a little program.

Yes I followed all the instrucions and after i typed "REN tokens" part it said : A duplicate file name exists, or the file cannot be found.I finished the procedure and the tab that says "Activate windows online now,ask me later" opened.Tried the key didnt work...

Hi NjeHapaPara,

can you try this link, if it wasnt the one youve tried

http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate/

youll see a spinning icon while its processing.

I can see no reason why its defaulting to the grace period.

The only other recourse is to phone MS,
WAIT for an operator

Its possible that the key has been blocked due to multiple activations, if you bought it on-line its a distinct possibility, common practice nowadays, if thats the case demand a refund .


If MS tells you its legit, then id go for a clean install with the discs that came with key

HMMMMM

lending you disc, is OK
i bought a standalone disk from a shop and i have used it some times for my friends and self.

BUT
Hope you didnt give them the key as well -- what did i say about multiple activations your key can only be in use on one computer!!!

If you did then whoever had it last has possibly got the only valid install.

Did you use the phone option, its the only recourse now

I guess the phone option is the last hope.Can you give me a number available for me considering Im in Albania? Or my country doesn't have access for this service? I wouldn't be surprised
