Gateway-i3 w/Windows 7 Professional 64 (Upgraded from Windows 7 Home 64) now Not Genuine RRS feed

    Today I received the notification that my copy of Windows 7 was not genuine. This was after some unattended upgrades in the past week or so. This is ridiculous since the upgrade to professional was done more than a year ago on a Gateway PC with COA sticker for home premium purchased from Buy.com.  I bought this Gateway PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 on board and it has a COA label on the case for that edition. I then used the "Get more features with a new edition of Windows 7" on the System Properties sheet over a year ago (2/6/2010) to do the upgrade to Professional.

    Aside from an update problem two months ago--which required a recovery reinstall and reactivation--all has been fine. Now even when I try to run slui.exe 4 I get a black screen and a message:

    0xC0000022 {Access Denied} A process has requested access to an object, but has not been granted those access rights.

    My MGADiag.exe output follows between lines:

  • Hi Steve,

     

      Sorry for that. I had a feeling it might be the same error, but I needed to make sure.

     

      The only reasons (that I know of) for getting the "System Error 2 The system cannot find the file specified." error is either:

    a) The file(s) are missing. (i.e. The files are not located in their proper folder)

    or

    b) The registry entry that tells Windows were to find the file(s) is messed up in some way. (i.e. Windows doesn't know what folder to look in or is being told to look in the wrong folder)

     

    Since you have already verified that the files do exist and appear to be in the correct folder I believe the issue is Registry based.

    However, I am reluctant to troubleshooting Registry issues on the forums. It can be dangerous in that other users (that may not have a registry issue) may try the registry troubleshooting steps and mess something up.

    Noel is much better at Registry related issues then I am and may have something you can try (possibly doing it away from the Forums) but otherwise I recommend contacting Microsoft Assisted Support (at one of the below URLs) or as a last resort, reinstall Windows.

    MS validated my key and passed me along through several different folks who took various sorts of information to a tech person who spent an hour trying to get my machine fixed. He couldn't and told me I'd have to reinstall--a repair reinstall. However, because I had installed Win 7 SP1 and didn't have a Win 7 Pro64 SP1 disk--I can't do a repair reinstall--SP1 wouldn't uninstall. Further, MS doesn't yet ship Win7SP1 disks. So, I was thrown back on whatever backup I have or alternatively an opportunity to use the transfer tool to export all of my software after which I can reinstall Win7Pro64 and reinstall my software and data.

    This is all consequent to the MS Windows Genuine Advantage counterfeiting prevention system and MS lack of respect for its customers. Recall this adventure began with a machine in perfect operating condition doing a MS driven 3:00 AM "update" to the system after which my installation was no longer "genuine."

    I have used MS products since MSDOS 1.0 however I now only require the use of MS-Outlook 2010/2011 and will limit my use to that tool on a new MacBookAir. I will have to spend $100's of dollars to replace other Windows based software for use on OSX, but would rather do that than further waste my time with Windows 7 and Microsoft's Genuine Advantage.

    I appreciate Noel's and Darin's interest and help and wish you well.

    Regards./Steve

    Today I received the notification that my copy of Windows 7 was not genuine. This was after some unattended upgrades in the past week or so. This is ridiculous since the upgrade to professional was done more than a year ago on a Gateway PC with COA sticker for home premium purchased from Buy.com.  I bought this Gateway PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 on board and it has a COA label on the case for that edition. I then used the "Get more features with a new edition of Windows 7" on the System Properties sheet over a year ago (2/6/2010) to do the upgrade to Professional.

    Aside from an update problem two months ago--which required a recovery reinstall and reactivation--all has been fine. Now even when I try to run slui.exe 4 I get a black screen and a message:

    Thanks for the sc data!
    ...but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with it.
     
    As you suspected, the error is caused by the SPPSVC  (software Protection ) service not having started - it needs to be running all the time in Win7.
    What error message do you get when you attempt to start the Service?
    Please check in the Services Console (Services.msc) that the service (Software Protection) is set to Automatic (Delayed Start), and attempt to start it there.
     
    Please also attempt to start it from an Elevated Command Prompt - using the command
    NET START SPPSVC
     
    the two approaches tend to give slightly different error message which may help us to home in on the problem.

    Hi Steve,

    When you open a CMD (Command Prompt) with Administrator privileges, the last line in the command prompt will show "C:\Windows\system32>"

    In your post, the last line in the prompt is showing "C:\Users\sdavidso>' which would only happen if the CMD window was opened with normal user privileges.

    To open a CMD window with Administrator privileges, click the Start button, type: CMD in the search field, then right-click the resulting CMD file and select "Run As Administrator". You will know you have a CMD window with Administrator privileges if the title of the windows shows "Administrator: C:\windows\system32\cmd.exe".

    Once you get a CMD window that has Administrator privileges, retry the steps that Noel provided.

     

    Thank you,

    Don't look to me for this one :)
    I don't have anywhere to start for problem-solving this as yet - it'd be trial-and-error until I manage to get hold of a system actually showing the fault myself.

  • If either Darin or Noel will send me the export of the relevant keys from a Windows 7 Professional 64-bit installation I'll take a crack at it myself. I've danced around the registry more than once, though to this time only on WinXP. Still, I'd like to take a whack at it before doing a repair install which is what I'll end up doing after spending two weeks w/MS support, I expect.

    There are a large number of potentials here - so large that it'd be like searching a haystack for a straw.
    If I had a problem machine in front of me, I'd have a go, but otherwise, I'm not going to get involved in this one - and I don't fancy helping someone to trash their machine either :)

    MS validated my key and passed me along through several different folks who took various sorts of information to a tech person who spent an hour trying to get my machine fixed. He couldn't and told me I'd have to reinstall--a repair reinstall. However, because I had installed Win 7 SP1 and didn't have a Win 7 Pro64 SP1 disk--I can't do a repair reinstall--SP1 wouldn't uninstall. Further, MS doesn't yet ship Win7SP1 disks. So, I was thrown back on whatever backup I have or alternatively an opportunity to use the transfer tool to export all of my software after which I can reinstall Win7Pro64 and reinstall my software and data.

    This is all consequent to the MS Windows Genuine Advantage counterfeiting prevention system and MS lack of respect for its customers. Recall this adventure began with a machine in perfect operating condition doing a MS driven 3:00 AM "update" to the system after which my installation was no longer "genuine."

    I have used MS products since MSDOS 1.0 however I now only require the use of MS-Outlook 2010/2011 and will limit my use to that tool on a new MacBookAir. I will have to spend $100's of dollars to replace other Windows based software for use on OSX, but would rather do that than further waste my time with Windows 7 and Microsoft's Genuine Advantage.

    I appreciate Noel's and Darin's interest and help and wish you well.

    Regards./Steve

    Ouch! - I'm surprised that they couldn't get SP1 to uninstall so you could do the repair install.
    If you're up for it, you could always try slipstreaming SP1 into a retail Win7 disk, and trying that?

  • I read somewhere that the dvds made that way do not work for a repair install.  Sounds bogus but be prepared.

    I've not attempted either method for a 'slipstreamed' disk yet - and I'd rather not have to, as it means having one for each edition encountered (in the case of the 'approved method' at least). It was bad enough with XP, needing 5 disks for each SP level (OEM/Retail for Home/Pro, + MCE) for each language - now that there are umpteen editions forced on us I dread to think what the resulting diskset is (10?).
