Windows activation product key you typed is invalid for activation (Cannot access %windir%\system32 through browser) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I turned on my computer and it said "Windows vista home premium product key is invalid for activation." I tried using this method:

    1) Open an Internet Browser window.
    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    5) Type: net stop slsvc  (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type: net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Restart your computer twice.
    12) You may be required to enter the Product Key and/or Activate.

    BUT, Google Chrome is my default browser, and it will not allow me to access this. I do not have a start button and cannot change my default browser. 

    Help?

    Thank you very much.

  • Again, thank you for replying. The solution you provided did not work. I called tech support for help. The cd key I was using was blacklisted, apparently. I was given a new one.

    Thank you very much.

    <Quote>
     
    Computers, which are built by large manufactures that come with Windows
    Pre-Installed, come with two (2) Product Keys:
     
    A) OEM SLP: This key comes pre-installed in Windows, when it comes from
    the Factory. This key is geared to work with the special instructions found
    only on that Manufacturer's computer hardware. So when Windows was installed
    using the OEM SLP key (at the factory) Vista looks at the motherboard and
    sees the special instructions and Self-Activates. (that's why you did not
    need to Activate your computer after you brought it home)
     
     
     
    B) COA SLP: This is the Product key that you see on the sticker on the
    side (or bottom) of your computer. It is a valid product key, but should
    only be used in limited situations (such as if the OEM SLP key stops
    self-activating for whatever reason). The key must be activated by Phone.
    (Note: All manufacturers that use the OEM SLP system are required by
    contract to include a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) sticker, that has a
    COA SLP key, on the computer)
     
     
     
    Your Windows is using an OEM SLP key, but (for whatever reason) cannot
    see the special instructions in the computer's motherboard and is unable to
    Self-Activate.
     
    To fix the issue, you will need to change out the OEM SLP key with the COA
    SLP key. The normal way to do this is to click the 'Start' button,
    right-click 'Computer' select 'Properties' and then click 'Change Product
    Key' (located in the lower right-hand side of the window). Enter the COA SLP
    key and follow the instructions in the Change Product Key Wizard.
     
     
     
    Alternate steps to change the product key
     
     
     
    1) Click the Start button
    2) Type: slui.exe 3 and hit the Enter key
     
    3) Type in the Product key from the sticker on your computer
     
    4) Click the Next button.
     
    5) You will be asked if want to Activate, click ok
     
    6) It will attempt to Activate by the internet and will return an Invalid
    Key error (this is ok, continue to step 7)
     
    7) Click the Start button
     
    8) Type: slui.exe 4 and hit the Enter key
     
    9) Select your location in the drop down menu and click the Next button
     
    10) The next screen provides the number to call to Activate by Phone
     
     
     
    NOTE: when you call that number, you will first hear an Automated Voice. If
    the Automated Voice gives you an option to talk to a Live Activation Rep.,
    select that option. If not, do not enter any numbers. This should force the
    Automated Voice to transfer you to a Live Activation Rep. Trying to Activate
    thru the Automated Voice will not work, in your case; only thru the Live
    Activation Rep. will your Activation be successful.
     
    Thank you,
    Darin MS

  • Thanks for replying. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the start button. I can only use Google Chrome. What can I do?
    Sunday, August 15, 2010 11:30 AM
  • Hello hermitthefrog,

    See if Chrome can do this.

    In the address bar, type file:///c:/windows/system32 and hit enter.  That command will open up a Windows Explorer window in that folder, not sure if Chome will do the same.  If you can get there, scroll down to slui.exe and double-click to run it.

    In my install of Chrome, it brings up and old-fashioned File Manager-type interface....but only 'downloads' the file to the download box. and you can do nothing with it there.
     
    try this -  boot to Safe Mode, and change your default browser to IE - then back in Normal Mode, you should be able to use the command again

  • Again, thank you for replying. The solution you provided did not work. I called tech support for help. The cd key I was using was blacklisted, apparently. I was given a new one.

    Thank you very much.

  • Hello Noel,

    Seems like Chrome is a bit lacking in, ahem, polish, eh? :-)

    At least it is possible to run the resulting download - which is more than Firefox can do!. However, because the download isn't in the right place, it throws an error message when running. MS must have hard-coded the system32 folder into the CMD executable (or at least made it impossible to run from elsewhere).
