Windows Vista Activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Tried to activate Vista Home Premium via the automated 'phone system. After entering the 9 sets of 6 digits the automated message said that I would now get a validation code for Windows XP.  This isn't right, surely? (Didn't proceed at that point)  What do I do next?

    Hi LaurieE,


      When you call that number, you will first hear an Automated Voice that will try to Activate Vista for you. If the Automated Voice gives you an option to talk to a Live Activation Rep, select that option. If not, do not enter any numbers. This should force the Automated Voice to transfer you to a Live Activation Rep.



    Thank you,
