Blocked VLK RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings from Downunder!

    I'm hoping someone can help me with a blocked VLK problem. I bought my computer 5 or 6 years ago and it was running windows 2000. As I was studying at the time I purchased an academic version of XP Pro and upgraded my computer. At some stage my hard drive crashed (can't recall if it was pre or post XP) and I think I used the recovery disk to install Windows on the new hard drive. Anyway here's the blurb I got from the WGA thingo:

  • A "Blocked VLK" is a Volume License Key that is valid, but was licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business. Blocked VLK's are Product Keys that Microsoft has received consent from the original owner to block usage of. A VL Product Key is non-transferrable to individuals. In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, you'll see a button to click on which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit.

  • Hi Carey,

    thanks for your response - now I have another question. Does the blocked VLK apply to my version of XP or is it on the windows 2000 that was initially installed on the computer when I bought it?

     

    cheers

  • Hello Nerdy--

    Your MGA diagnostic report shows that you have a non-geuine Volume License version of Windows XP Professional.

  • Thanks Carey,

    I am going to take it in to the place I bought it then, as it is a reputable software seller and they can sort it out!
