Windows Activation and change product key links broken RRS feed

  • Question

  • I only have a couple of days left to activate my copy of windows vista. My copy is genuine and authentic, but for some reason when I go to activate my copy, the link seems to be broken and will not open.

     

    Please help!

  • Hello,

    Open a command prompt and type:

    slui 0x13

    then press Enter.

    This should pop-up a dialogue where you can enter your key.

    Let me know if you still have trouble.

    Thanks

  • Wow, thanks,

    I was having the same issue. Your fix worked wonderfully. I will write that command down. Thanks.

  • Hey, thanks for this information.  I had entered a KMS Vista product key by mistake (we don't yet have 25 machines running Vista to use this key), and my links to change product key were not functioning.  When I followed your instructions, I was able to change my product key to our MAK product key.  Thanks again!
