Vista Home Premium Activation Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • My computer crashed. Tried to reinstall Vista Home Premium from my origional Gateway Operating System Disc. It would reinstall and get to SP1 , but that was the end to the updates. Then I got the blue screen a couple of times. Found a copy of the Vista installation disc wih SP2 and it installed fine but it says my license is up in 29 days. Tried to install the OEM product key but says it invalid. The report says it is genuine . I need some help with this. This has been a headache trying to recover from this crash.

  • I tried your suggestion. The first time I did something wrong and had to reset my computer to a earlier restore point. The second time it worked as you said but the sticker on the bottom of my computer is worn and can't read it anymore. I used the cd key and it is back to the same error message.
    I guess I will call microsoft and see if I can get this resolved.

  • It's likely that you have one of the Keys that were obsoleted when MS upgraded the licensing system in SP2. This means that the Key will continue to work if the system is upgraded with it in place - but it cannot be installed in a new system with SP2.

    You may be able to get MS to give you a new Key -

    telephone activation (operator calls)

    Click on the Start button

    in the Search box, type

    SLUI   4

    and hit the Enter key

    follow the instructions, but when asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.

  • Tried the SlUI 4. Did not take me to any link for a phone activation. Gave me a choice of buying a key, typing a different key or contact microsoft. Contact microsoft just took me to a help screen on my computer but none of the links  got me anywhere.

  • Hmm - let's try entering the Key through that route...

    Click on the Start button

    in the Search box, type

    SLUI   3

    and hit the Enter key

    You'll be asked to enter your COA Key - what error message do you get when you try?

  • Gave me a error code 0xc004e003. When I tried the help link it just brought up the computer help screen. Can I just call microsoft or use chat to get this resolved?

  • Try this first - it may clear the blockage...

    Recreate the Licensing Store with the correct data.

    1) Open an Internet Browser window.

    2) Type: %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.

    3) Find the file CMD.exe

    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'

    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) Restart your computer twice. 

    You may be asked to enter your COA Key and/or Activate. – if asked for the Key, use the one on your COA sticker on the machine’s case (you may need to activate by telephone).  

    If you still can't either get activated or at least get the Key input, then telephone your local umber from this list...

    https://www.microsoft.com/licensing/existing-customers/activation-centers.aspx

    and ask for their assistance - you'll need to use this procedure to get an operator...

     When asked which service you require by the telephone ansafone, do NOT reply - this should force an operator to respond, who can deal with you
