Vista Business - activation period has expired!?! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Well I restarted my machine tonight and upon reboot I am told "your activation period has expired" and I have the 4 options appear to activate online, reduced functionality, retype your key or other methods.

     

    Activate Windows online now yields the following error code:   0xC004E003

     

    Retype your product key yields the following error code:   0xC004F050

     

    Using the automated phone system option, there is no Installation ID shown under step 2 so there's no way I can activate over the phone.

     

     

    Now this installation has been working fine for months. It's Vista Business and was installed by the key provided by my company's Microsoft Action Pack. As far as I remember it was activated back at installation time. I can name one other employee who used a different Business key from the action pack too for his installation, and his Vista has apparently been installed longer than mine.... Note, don't tell me to get the IT dept to fix this - we are the IT dept =)

     

    Here's my MGA diagnostic tool log:

  • Thanks for your help, but I spoke to customer support earlier today (plus 3 other departments!) and we got this resolved in the end by removing my licensing info and then re-entering it and reactivating.

     

    You can mark this thread as solved.

    Thanks again.

  • Hi BV_VGER,

     

    Please follow the below steps and inform me if the issue was resolved:

     

    1) Click the option Access computer with reduced functionality

    2) A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field

    3) Find the file cmd.exe

    4) Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

    5) Type: cscript %windir%\System32\slmgr.vbs /ilc %windir%\System32\licensing\ppdlic\Security-Licensing-SLC-ppdlic.xrm-ms

    6) Hit the Enter key

    7) Reboot 2 times

  • Thanks for the lightning fast response, Darin.

     

    I'm afraid that didn't do the trick though =/ I'm in the same situation.

  • I hate to bump, but any more ideas on this? I'm hoping I'd get this working for work on Monday morning, or at least a diagnosis for me to work on.
