  • Unfortunately, your license for Windows 7 Ultimate is counterfeit.  Contact the seller and demand a refund.

  • You cannot install an OEM_SLP Key into VM.

    All VMs require a full license.

  • Thanks Noel,

    I believe I'm possibly getting to the bottom of this.

    In the diagnostic report I see the line "Windows License Type: Retail" does that indicate that the Window "Product" we received is Retail (but not necessarily the license key?)   And then also, is it the "OEM activation" data section at the bottom of the report what tells us that an OEM key (instead of a Retail key) was given to us for activation?

    Thanks again for your time.

    I'm trying to understand this better because we need to know how we can tell tell right away if we're getting ripped off. Since Windows activates (and said it's genuine) but then occasionally, typically months later, after the systems are off-site and in production use we get this message, it has been very frustrating.

  • Sorry - my mistake! - I obviously read a different report as being yours!. :(

    However, the problem appears to be that the installed Key is one from an abused MSDN-type subscription account, in which case the following applies...

    The installed Product Key is an MSDN-type Subscriber-only Key Unless you are an MSDN subscriber, you are not entitled to use the Key – and whoever sold it to you was not entitled to do so. 

    You need to claim an immediate refund from the vendor - do NOT accept the offer
    of a new key (all they are trying to do is to get past the 45-day claims window
    or avoid you sending the evidence of their crimes to the authorities)

    Please read the following posts.... .................................




    The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of
    equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less
    well-policed countries.

    see also this post....


    Also - have a look at this video....


    You may be able to get a complimentary copy of the OS from Microsoft
    - fill in the Counterfeit report here...

  • Noel,

    So to clarify...

    1. I did get a Retail copy of windows!?

    2. But they gave me an abused MSDN subscription license key? (this is a MS Certified Partner Company)

    3. How can I tell? (now and in the future) So we don't get 6 months in before we find out it's a bad key?
