  • Hello Sahiljain,

     

    I have checked your Product Key and it is a blocked Volume Licensing Key (VLK). VLKs are blocked by Microsoft at the request of the original keyholder for such reasons as the key was lost, stolen, compromised, misused, or expired.  Also, MS may have blocked the key if it notices a pattern of misuse, ie, more installations of XP using that key than authorized.

      As a rule, VLk editions of XP should not be sold to individual consumers.  Businesses, schools and gov'ts normally use VL editions for flexibility in installing many computers.  Also, Volume Licenses for Windows XP are Upgrade licenses ONLY and cannot be used as the original or base license for a new computer.

     

    I can provide you with a couple options and I recommend that you follow up with both:

    1) Contact the person/company that sold you the software and demand the Genuine Microsoft software, that you paid for. Or a Refund.

    2) Click on the blue star in the System Tray and Submit a Piracy Report to Microsoft. If it is a High Quality counterfeit (go to http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/en/default.mspx for comparisons), you may be eligible for a free replacement. 

    or

    3) Click on the blue star in the system tray and follow the directions to purchase a WGA Kit.
