one care reinstall RRS feed

  • Question


    I had a paid version of OC which I had to uninstall. I don't have a installation disk as I downloaded on line. I cannot find the activation code and am not prepared to pay again to reinstall. Can anyone please help? I am now using the trial version which will expire in 14 days

  • If you have an active subscription, which is what was created when you activated on the first computer, you need to use the same LiveID on the subsequent activations. You can't use the same key twice, so the code won't help you. If you are arriving at a screen to purchase or provide a token, you are likely not using the same LiveID as the subscription ID.


    If you don't recall the LiveID you used for your subscription, you will need to contact support who can provide that information to you using your Key and/or contact information.

    Alternatively, sign in at http://billing.microsoft.com with email addresses that you have set up as LiveIDs and one will show your subscription listed - that would the LiveID to use to activate the reinstall.
