Activation Issues RRS feed

  • Question

  • I installed WHS and added power pack 2.  I recently purchased the software through newegg.com and it is telling me that I do not have a proper activation code.  Is this because the version of WHS that I got thru newegg is for power pack 1 and I am trying to activate a version with power pack 2?  How can I get around this?

    If you were previously using the 120 day eval (and are now trying to use the OEM license to activate that eval), you can't do that.  In that case, you need to do a Server Reinstallation.  See the FAQ post:  How do I upgrade from the evaluation/trial to a full copy of WHS? for details.
