Trying to Activate the Demo Copy of WHS. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have downloaded and installed the Demo copy of WHS.  It is working fine.  I ordered a licensed copy from NewEgg and am trying to use the Product Key to activate my current installation.  However, I just get an "incorrect product key" message.  The software that I purchased is an OEM version of WHS.  I really don't want to have to rebuild the server with purchased software.  Can anyone help?

  • Please see this FAQ , which outlines how to upgrade from the evaluation software the the full version. Long story short, reinstallation/recovery is your only option.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
