The product key you typed is already in use!! RRS feed

  • Question



    My Vista Home Premium was working fine 'till I reinstalled and tried to activate, it gave me this message "The product key you typed is already in use".  I called MS Support in Egypt though I am in Libya and they gave me a confirmation ID and it activated.


    Today I reinstalled windows again and i got the same message "The product key you typed is already in use". I checked http://www.microsoft.com/genuine and the result was "Thank you for validating your copy of Microsoft Windows."


    I run the MGADiag tool and here are the results
