3 Different Error Codes when Activating/Validating RRS feed

  • Question

  • I just installed using the Express Upgrade to Windows Vista DVD that I got thru Gateway. I'm getting 3 different error codes.

    Here they are....

    Error: 0xc004d401.......I get that when I click to Validate. It says my copy of Windows didn't pass genuine validation. Saw the list of things here that could be causing the problem. The only thing I had on my PC was Trend Micro. I updated it to a Vista version with still no luck. I currently have it uninstalled and still no luck.

    When I go to System to Activate because it says it wasn't activated I get this, Error: 0xc004f033
    It says the software licensing agency reported the Product Key isn't allowed to be installed.

    When I run the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Tool I get this:

    When I first boot up everything is fine. I have to race to the Control Panel before Windows decides it's going to block me from using my VALID version of Windows that I obtained thru Gateway's Upgrade program.

    Please help!

  • In reference to the 0xC004F033 error:  The Express Upgrade must be installed on top of an existing OS.  Was there an OS installed already when you upgraded?


    For 0xC004D401:  Did you reboot after uninstalling it and try validating again?  You can revalidate by clicking "Validate Windows" here: www.microsoft.com/genuine  If validation fails please let me know the error code you get at the end of the message on the page that tells you it failed. 


    Thank you!
