  • To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
    (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
     Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
     To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.

    Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

    GenuineCheck problems are usually the result of using FireFox to access validation-related items. Use Internet Explorer for all such access.

  • I have the same problem.  I think MSFT really screwed up on this one.  My HD crashed and I reinstalled Win7 now I am dead in the water until I can get some critical software components installed that rely on WGA!
