Activation? Done. Validation? You must activate first! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm the proud owner of PowerTogether copies of Vista Business and Office 2007. My copy of Vista has been activated twice, once when I initially installed it and a second time on the phone when I redid my hard drive subsystem.

    A few days ago, I tried to download the new build of Windows Defender for XP (I'm an on site IT technician so I use WD XP all the time). To download WD XP, you've got to validate. So I ran GenuineCheck.exe to do as much. The key it spit out was not accepted and my OS was flagged as invalid in whatever way this happens. Now, whenever I try to revalidate the OS with (hopefully) a more Vista friendly method, I am told that I need to activate before I validate. I of course, cannot do this because the OS is already activated. I have not changed any of the hardware in the system since activation. How can I resolve this issue?

    It's the same problem I have. The only difference is that I've reinstalled Vista because I needed to put my hds in RIDE, so I had to perform a phone activation (the product-key, after this change, was "already used" according to the automatic activation system).

  • I think what happened here was this, the WD was for XP and thusly had the XP WGA tool with it, and since XP isnt Vista, that is probably where your troubles came from.

    Reinstall im afraid.
