Blocked VLK RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    100% sure that the copy of XP is counterfeit. Purchased the WGA kit but can't run the Product Key Update Tool due to an error caused, I suspect, by the blocked VLK. Any suggestions as to how I remedy the situation? Details posted below.

     

    Cheers,

  • Ian56,

    You have a business or  "Volume License" version of Windows installed on your system. What "Blocked VLK" means is that that the Product Key that your computer currently has associated with it has been blocked in our servers. You had stated that you purchased the WGA kit, but aren't able to get the Product Key Update Tool to change the key. What is the exact error that you are getting? are you able to get to the point where you can input the key?

    Please let me know,

    Thanks,

  • Dan,

    Thanks for the advice. Turned off the antivirus and firewall and everything installed OK after that. My version of Windows has now been authenticated.

  • I downloaded the update tool and when I run it the program first scans my computer and then attempts to download files from Microsoft. At this point I get Error 0x80004005, although my computer is connected to the internet. I cannot get any further than this. The same happens if I try to run the update tool direct from the website rather than downloading it to my computer first.

  • Ian56,

    The error code 0x80004005 indicates that the Key Updater Utility is having difficulty communicationg with MS's servers.  It has to work with the servers to analyze and verify over 6,000 individual files that make up the Windows OS installed on your computer.

    This error is almost always caused by one of these three things:

    1.  An antivirus program thinks the utility's actions are those of a malicious program and the AV program is blocking the utility.

    2.  A personal firewall program thinks the utility's actions are those of a malicious program and the firewall program is blocking the utility.

    3.  Your computer's connection to the internet has a proxy server somewhere along the line which is prevent full two-way communication with MS servers.

    Please check for these conditions and correct as necessary.
