  • anand,

    The current Product Key being used on your system is non-genuine for one of two reasons:

    - The key was made using a non-Microsoft sanctioned Key Generator

    - The key was reported lost or stolen from the original purchaser.

     

    Can you verify that your COA matches your Product Key? If it does not you can try the following:

     

    1 - Reinstall Windows so your COA matches your Product Key (install using your COA as the Product Key) - This is the preferred method by Microsoft, as it will be a fresh copy, void of potential hacked binary files and security loops that may have been created to bypass WGA. We know this is usually not the user preference, but it is the safest method.

     

    The Genuine Advantage Product Key Update Tool is only valid for users attempting to change their current non-genuine Product Key to a genuine COA sticker or genuine Product Key – all without a reinstall! http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=50346&clcid=0x409

     Note: This is provided no core system files are corrupted. If they are you will need to complete a clean install of your system.

     

     

               If your COA does match the product key being used on your system I recommend filing a counterfeit report, it MAY be a high quality counterfeit (which MAY qualify you for a *free* WGA kit) – Counterfeit report is located here: http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/Reporting.mspx

  • The copy of Windows you are using is not genuine. An Invalid Product Key is one that is made by a non-Microsoft sanctioned Key Generator. In addition, it does say that you are using a Volume License installation. Since the COA matches the Product Key, I would suggest filing a counterfeit report about your purchase point, or purchasing Genuine Windows directly from Microsoft.

    In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, you'll see a button to click (Get Genuine) which will provide information on your options which include how to acquire a WGA Kit.
