    Cant acivate W7 home error code 0X80072F8F


    I dont know whether this is because W7 is obsolete or not but I've used a genuine key that has worked on my desktop but has now failed on a new install on my Laptop. The time and date shown on bottom right are correct. Any ideas? Thanks

    If that is a laptop, the easiest way is to use slp activation. What brand and model of laptop ?

    Is it the Samsung ?

    Alternatively:

    type slui 4 in the start menu run box

    select united kingdom in the dropdown

    ring the ms activation freefone 0800 018 8354

    keep the slui window open they might ask for the displayed numbers.

    They might think it is still in use on the desktop.

    If the op is trying to use a key that was previously used n his desktop, it is unlikely to activate even if the connection is working.

    If he has done a reinstall, the samsung recovery solution is probably gone.

    He just needs the cert and default key for Home Premium, if that is the edition he has installed.

    Samsung-7HP-OEM.zip

    Unzip it onto your desktop

    rt click and run as admin on the samsung-slp.cmd

    Windows 7 is not worth a lot in 2022 with a valid version of the Update Client missing. Install KB3138612.

    Not able to activate and update Windows 7

    Thanks. Sorry for a late reply but I'm not getting email notifcations even though I clicked for them.

    I ran that cmd and it came back "CQBVJ-9J697-PWBPR-4K7W4-2BT4J applied successfully" Not sure what that means. I used that to activate and it came back "invalid code".

    This is on a Samsung RV510 Laptop. The key I successfully used to activate the desktop W7 was the one I tried using to activate the Laptop without success..
