MSDN Key that is not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought a "New Full Version" from eBay and have started getting messages that I'm not activated. I've researched this a bit and realize I have an MSDN version and Key that is not working and blocked now. So I want to buy the new kit and key, questions....will I have to reinstall or just enter the new key? 2. If my computer crashes some where down the line will the key still work for me if I format the HD and reinstall. Thanks......I'd rather just by the new key that a new Win 7 Ultimate.

  • You should be able to install the new key obtained with the WGA "get legit" kit. If you purchase the key from MS and it will not install you will need to contact WGA support and they can walk you through getting the key installed and activated. If they can't help or tell you to perform a clean install then ask Darin for assistance in this thread.

  • Hello biznet123,

    In order to receive the best support, we request all users initially download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012. Click "Run" several times to download and start the Utility.  When asked, click the "Continue" button.  When the utility completes its run, click the "Copy" button, then come back here and paste the report into your post.

    I am assuming "new full version" means you got the package, the disc, etc rather than just a standalone product key.
