  • Hi, I just bought a desktop computer who cames with windows vista home premium . I  had to install the windows using the Dvd  from Microsoft, but when I tried to activate the S/O i got some problems regarding the activation .  It says that  The windows Vista Premium product key is invalid for the activation. I used the product key from the sticker that came with the computer. I am just wondering where is the problem ? can someone help please ? Thank you.

  • Have you tried telephone activation from the same dialogue box?

     

    You can also prompt this by pressing Start and then typing in "slui.exe 4" and then pressing enter.

  • Yes , i tried the telephone activation following the steps from the menu but I got the same problem, the serial number is not valid... same thing using slui.exe 4, the same dialog box telling me that the serial number is invalid, and giving me the 3 choices again.
