    Is this the same problem - a pirate copy of Windows Ultimate Retail?  It was fine and activated fine until I had to reinstall it after a problem with the Windows XP partition

  • Your key is a blocked MSDN key that was sold to you in violation of the terms of the original MSDN account holder. Please see the blocked keys sticky for information on what this all means and how you can remedy the situation, after reading the sticky post any further questions here.

    If however you are a legitimate MSDN/TN account holder and your key was derived from that account please disregard the above and contact the tech support or customer service for your account.

    Thanks

  • Hey Carl

    I purchased a key from an ebay seller. I too have received the dreaded 0xC004C003 message on using it to activate my installation. I am sure the seller is not a crook as his service has been excellent. It strikes me that the obvious place to start is checking my code against a Microsoft database. Is there a pain free way of doing that?

    With thanks

  • Personally, I access these groups through the NNTP Bridge, so rarely see any medals at all, and couldn't give a monkey's how many I or anyone else have.
    Avoidance of confusion is always best - and combining threads WILL confuse people - if not now, then later, when they pick up links from Google and the like.

  • Thanks Noel.. you're cool.

    I think American g/fs reactivity to American power games is rubbing off on me.  NZ is small and accountable so we just tend to help each other without having to do the song and dance routine. I have caught more than my share of the other since the world went global. Not forgetting the fact that I really don't want to be here. I don't give a rat's about what goes on in my computer, I just want the thing to work but Microshaft can't even get the basics right unto giving me a key that does the job.

    They then opt out of picking up their mess in the manner of my ex-wife by making it impossible to get an email through to them. Instead they put the onus on the community to do their dirty work. This would be fine if I was paying the community.. I could then stride in with my hands on my hips rather than having to do this cap in hand sh*t. I have already done more than enough of that to last me several lifetimes. In terms of your advice not to let the illegitimis grind me down.. way too late for that. I am the pater familias of worn out stubs.

    With reference to your specific suggestion I do not know what an NNTP bridge is. Yes I agree that the best sites are the most orderly but in situations where I am the old hand I let the newbies make a mess because I am strong in the house-keeping department. Besides there is an old Celtic saying "it is in the most out of the way places that you find the biggest lobster." In other words simply following along is no guarantee of success.. if this is Mars I have just crash-landed and I can't be too apologetic for that.. I would be gone in a minute if I could just fix my landing craft.

    I lost track of the number of mixed metaphors in there :)
    As I say - avoid confusion, and everybody's happy.
     
    Good Luck

  • For the benefit of any other computer novices who alight on this page somewhat the worse for wear.. a signpost.

    http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/genuinewindows7/thread/a2444f34-0aff-4f29-a8ac-67e28b0c0285

    The above post warns about people buying keys at "too good to be true" prices from ebay. Having just built myself a computer using componentry largely sourced in the US I had come to accept that I was paying through the nose in my own country. We are also highly regulated and I assumed that this was how things were done in the land of the free. After all what could go wrong?.. Ebay was totally legit compared to the Chinese site where I had recently tried to buy a motorcycle. Everyone there was a scammer. I held Ebay up to the bewildered support team as a shining example.. the site had feedback columns and knew what was required to make their place a safe one to trade.. doh!

    Anyway the story goes there are these things called MSDN keys which were sold with software developers in mind. Certain ebayers then duplicated them and sold them on without authorisation. Microsoft became aware of this proliferation of licenses and blocked the lot.

    In order to find out if you have bought one there are various ways of checking the number. In my own case this was by way of the PID (Product ID?). First I opened my computer and right clicked my C hard drive. There I found the time left before activation is due and the PID. This will look something like this: 12345-067 -A2K5J7-5M2Y. It is the bolded triple digits which are of interest.

    Any Ultimate PIDs which use 065 066 and 067 are suspect. For Pro 220 and Premium 230 and 231.

    One good thing to come out of China is a little saying: "Give a dragon a name and it is no longer a dragon." Now at least that I understand the "conspiracy" which is afoot I don't see that I will have too many problems putting things to rights.
