KeyUpdate Tools reports "telephone activation require" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello from Germany!

    We run a couple of DELL PCs. After checking all PCs with WGA, we noticed that four of our PCs have a volume licence key installed in case of the correct XP pro key.

    Now I try to change the keys with the MS KeyUpdateTool and after entering the new key, the following message shows up at
    two of the PCs:

    "The product key you have entered will require telephone activation

    Would you still like to continue?"

    I dont want to crash those PCs in this moment. What to do in this case? Will XP stay installed and working after changing the key? Or will I not be able to re-activate it?

    Pls pardon my bad englsh and thx for your assistance!

    Best regards
