Dell Vista Business Validation Fails after Update RRS feed

  • Question

  • After I made an update today, my Windows restarted and after I typed in my password it showed me a message, which said that there was a failure in Windows activation. (0xC004E002)

    Can anybody help me with this?

  • I did this and now it helped - vista works again (hopefully not just until the next reboot):



    "5) Type: net stop slsvc (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)

    11) Reboot Twice"
