Blocked VLK? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried to answer Dan's kind response to my original question, but am unable to (for reasons I have yet to fathom.  When I press to send reply - nothing happens).

     

    So, here's trying with a new thread.  Tried the diagnostic test - in red it says 'blocked VLK - tried to copy but nothing happens.

     

    I have no paperwork re. COA, nor do I have a manufacturer's label.

     

    Not much help I'm afraid.

     

    Thanks Dan for answering my original question.  Sorry for delay.  Hope this gets to you.

  • A "Blocked VLK" is a Volume License Key that was once valid, but was licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business. Blocked VLK's are Product Keys that Microsoft has received consent from the original owner to block usage of. A VL Product Key is non-transferrable to individuals. In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit.
