Windows Product Key Update Tool error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello

    The product key on my installed version of windows XP media centre and the one on the sticker on my media centre PC dont match. I suspect this is since the PC went into a repair shop for a broken hard drive where they re-installed windows.

    I have followed the instructions from microsoft to use the product key update tool and when I run it i get an error saying -

    "This application must be run on a supported version of the Windows XP operating system"

    Help!!!!!

    The Product Key Update tool only works with Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional. It is not compatible with Tablet edition or Media center edition.

  • Are you seeing any WGA-related issue?  The Product Key Update Tool only works with Windows XP Home Edition or Windows XP Professional.

  • Do you have any suggestions how I would go about updating my product key other than doing a re-install of Windows which will be a pain in the ***.
