Activation with Microsoft Product Key not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

     I have tried to activate WHS with Microsoft online and I get the " the number of times that you can activated Windows with the product key has been exceeded" message.

     I have 13 days left and I still have another key to use with RC1, so not too worried that WHS will quit, just wanted to know if anyone else has seen this problem.

  • Nope - my system activated without a hitch, on the key I installed it with.

  • The keys are one-shot so if you used the key you used to install CTP to install RC1 you would get this problem.

  • go to the windows connect website
    log in
    and click request another product key
    and Microsoft will email you another key which will allow you to activate your server
