Expiry notice for legitimate MSDN Retail license for Vista Ultimate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have 2 machines, 1 is 32 bit the other 64 bit. Both are reporting that the legitimate MSDN Retail key that I have entered is "Expiring". I'm down to 2 days after wasting nearly 6 with chasing Microsoft and MSDN Technical support.

    So, I have:

    2 machines, both reporting they are about to expire
    I have tried the Activation steps described by MSDN Tech Support and as described here, followed by the Validation steps and reboots. So far nothing has worked.

    Where is this coming from?
    These machines were both upgraded from the final release code to my MSDN Licenses. One thing that has always bothered me is that both have never cleared the "Windows Vista (TM) Evaluation Copy. Build 6001" even though the registry and system info screens clearly indicate it is the current license and SP1 level now.

    Any thoughts would be welcome as I frankly don't have the time to mess with this right now and I don't need the machines going into reduced mode either just right now. None of this hassle is reassuring. I'm all for anti-piracy and validation but not when it messes up legitimate installs such as this - I have never before in 27 years of working with MSFT products had this kind of silliness. Very disappointing.

    Thanks.

    I trust you can establish some useful advice from this, so far I haven't gotten much from Support or MSDN.

     

    Your issue has Nothing to do with Activation or Validation. Your issue is that you have a Release Candidate of Service Pack 1 for Vista, installed. The Release Candidate expires because we would like our customer's to have the actual release version of something as important as a Service Pack.
