KMS licences RRS feed

  • Question

  • We just purchased a SA for each of our new Vista machines. We go to activate the vista install and after about 6 computers we got the error "the product key you typed is already in use" We have 120 kms licences. What did we do wrong and how do we fix it?

  • Hello johntazjor,

      To confirm, the KMS Vista clients are activating against your KMS Server and the server has enough licenses to cover all the KMS Vista Clients?

    Please also provide a Diagnostic Report from one of the KMS Vista clients that are getting the "the product key you typed is already in use" error.

    To get a Diagnostic Report:
    Download and run the Genuine Diagnostics tool at this link http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012. Click "Continue" click the Windows tab, click the "Copy" button, then paste the report into a response message, in this thread.

    Thank you,
    Darin MS
