  • Windows Product Key Update Tool Instructions: http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/selfhelp/pkuinstructions.aspx

     

    Please note that the Windows Product Key Update Tool can only be used if you have the same version of Windows XP as the installed non-genuine version.  For example, if there is a non-genuine version of Windows XP Professional installed on your computer, you can only use the Windows Product Key Update Tool if you have a valid Product Key for Windows XP Professional (Full Version...not an Upgrade Version).

     

    If you have a valid Product Key for Windows XP Home Edition, then the Windows Product Key Update Tool is not going to be of any use to you and a "clean install" of Windows XP Home Edition would be required.

  • A "Blocked VLK" is a Volume License Key that may have been 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.

  • OK so you are telling me that the company that sold this to me as OEM software has now asked that the product key be blocked, if so this is total BS as I purchased this from a legitimate software dealer for over $100.00 and now I have to buy a new version? What do I need to do to get a valid key now? I am going to take action against this software dealer if I can not use this copy of windows.

  • You do not have an OEM version of Windows XP installed.  You have a counterfeit Volume License version installed (Windows License Type: Volume).  Print your MGA report and send it to the seller and demand a refund!

  • P.S.  Your non-genuine Volume License product key has been illegally distributed all over the internet:

    It is definitely a bogus product key.

  • OK so I read a bit more and then compared the key the diagnostic found and it is not the same as the key on my COA so how did that happen and what do I need to do now? How could my key get changed since I am the one that installed XP on this pc?

  • Hello Jason,

     

    Can you please provide me with the name of the company, address, phone number and website name. Also I would recommend for you to file a piracy report.  Please vist http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howtotell/ and compare the media you purchased. Next visit http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/ site and review the instructions for filing a piracy report. This is very important customers file reports as this will prevent others from becoming victims. Also if your media meets the critera as presented in the priacy URL you may be eligible for free software. Thank you and I will be looking forwared in receiving the information above.
