      I am unsure of your issue. Are you trying to Validate or Activate?


    "Does anyone know the activations hotline for japan"


    a) If you need the Activation support for Japan:

     Click the Start button, and type in "slui.exe 4" in the search field and then press the "Enter" key. This will bring up the Activate by Phone dialog window. Follow the steps provided by the window. The phone activation process should only take about 6 minutes.
