Is my Windows 7 Genuine? RRS feed

  • Question

  • As directed, please find the Microsoft Genuine Advantage Diagnostic Tool output. Is this a valid retail Windows 7 Ultimate key?

    PID contains '068'... Doesn't look good... MSDN key?

    It was an eBay purchase :(

  • JustCallMeDan,

    My condolences.  My scumbag reseller (ebay) goes by the name "Chisewill".  Yours?

  • Hello JustCallMeDan,

    From your Diagnostic Report:

    "Windows Product ID: 00426-068 -3527704-86054"

    This tells us that the key originated from an MSDN (Microsoft Developer Network) subscription. Keys that originate from an MSDN Subscription are only valid to be used by the owner of that MSDN Subscription and are also tied to that subscription so the only way to sell an MSDN key is to sell the whole MSDN Subscription (which can be worth between $700 to $11,00 depending on the subscription level).

     So, unless you are the owner of MSDN subscription that this key originated from, then Cbarnhorst is correct, the key is not valid for use by you and is Non-Genuine.  In this case I would recommend contacting the person or company that sold you this key and software and demand a refund.

    Please see the below links for additional information:


    The pirates have got VERY good at this over the past few years, as the price of equipment for manufacturing the packages drops, and as factories open in less well-policed countries.

    Thank you,

  • Awww, #$%&!

    Well, thanks for the confirmation - at least this gives me something to arm myself with to get a refund! Needless to say, I am NOT the owner of any MSDN subscription.
