Activating Windows 7 Ultimate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I upgraded from Windows 7 Home edition to Windows 7 Ultimate and when I try to activate my license using a correctly typed Product Key I get the following message:

    The following error occurred while trying to use the product key:




    The software licensing service determined that this specified product key can only be used for upgrading, not for clean installations.

    I did not do a clean installation, I upgraded from Windows 7 Home.  What do I do to fix this?
