Vista Activation Messages are Incorrect RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I purchased a PC with Windows XP Media Center Edition. I then purchased a copy of windows Vista Upgrade Ultimate. I had some problems with my PC (actually due to Vista), so i reisntalled everything from Scratch: the old XP MCE, and then the Vista upgrade.

    Now, its telling me that my Vista is NOT GENUINE!!!

    The strange thing is this:

    If i go to start --> control panel ---> system: it tells me that windows is activated.

    If i go to the help & search section and type "Activate", one of the links in the help section tells me that my Vista is correctly activated.

    However, when i login to my PC, i get this dialog box saying that Vista is not genuine.

    Im FED UP! I had to install this Vista 1000's of times because of bugs.

    The 1st time i installed it was because of an upgrade. I installed the 64 bit version- this didnt work. Then, i installed the 32 bit version. In doing so, i erased my HD, and had to buy a NEW COPY OF WINDOWS VISTA HOME EDITION!!!!!! (My windows XP Media Center Edition would not install from the CD!!!). It didnt work.

    SO, i purchased a new version of Vista and plus the Upgrade. IM FED UP WITH Micorsoft!!!!!!!!!!! Its not fair!! You're ripping us off, and not allowing us to actually use the PC. I don't have time for this nonsense you've put us through!!!!!

  • It looks like you're successfully activated, so please try validating again by clicking "Validate Windows" here: www.microsoft.com/genuine

    If your validation attempt fails, please post the error code you get on the failure page.  It will be gray and in brackets at the end of the message on the page.

    If your validation attempt succeeds please log out and log back in to clear your non-genuine messaging.

    Thank you

  • Anyway, i tried typing: slmgr -ato in a command prompt window (as administrator). it came out with this dialog box saying "Activating Windows(TM) Vista, Ultimate Edition (30f.......-....... etc) ...

    Product activated successfully.

     

    But if it activated successfully, why do i get this message on the lower right hand corner saying :" WINDOWS VISTA (TM), Build 6000, This copy of windows is not genuine" ???

    Why is it everytime i go to windows update to make sure microsoft have the conscience to give us updates for this useless piece of software, that it tells me  im not running a genuine windows.

    Huh??  Why??? Why is it that since i purchased windows Vista, i've wasted more time debugging it and trying to get it to work than actually using it???? Why???

  • Hello,

    Please try phone activating your copy of Vista.  You can get started by using "slui 4" in a command prompt.  Please let me know if that works.  Thanks!

  • Hello,

     

    I read all the previous threads to see if someone had the same problem. THat was nearly 500 users so far I read. I read your response saying :"Try to use slui 4"

    I did, and i called Microsoft. I typed in 100's of long numbers twice. The 1st time, the phone was cut off. The 2nd time, it was useless because it said it could not be validated. A spokeswoman gave me some validation code which still did not work. She said i had to go through another number that are only open on during monday to Friday (working hours).

     

    My questions are this:

    a) I had the intelligence to read other user's comments and do what you've just recommended me to do. Why didn't microsoft take user comments and build more patches based on the complaints they receive?? Why was Vista so expensive given that its so useless?

    b) Why should i call Microsoft at hours and times when im not free to fix a problem THEY CAUSED!! - if i changed hardware config, or used some software that caused this mis-match... why isnt the software intelligent enough to know that I've paid TWICE for the software (once for the full BASIC version, and once for the FULL upgrade version!!!!!!).

    Tell me something u havent already proposed to anyone else here!!! PLEASE!!!!

  • It looks like you're successfully activated, so please try validating again by clicking "Validate Windows" here: www.microsoft.com/genuine

    If your validation attempt fails, please post the error code you get on the failure page.  It will be gray and in brackets at the end of the message on the page.

    If your validation attempt succeeds please log out and log back in to clear your non-genuine messaging.

    Thank you

  • Please try phone activation.  You can get started with phone activation by typing "slui 4" in the search field in the Start Menu and pressing Enter.

    ... and then revalidated by using the instructions above.  Please let me know if you run into any snags.  Thank you.

    Got i to work today (had to wait for the phone service to be open ;))

    I did run into one little snag along the way though. The pop up telling you that windows is not genuine also killed the slui, which is bit of a drag when you are in the middle of punching in the 54 digit code on the phone ;)

    So if it is possible to exclude slui from the things affected by the "feature downgrade" associated with running in non-validated mode, that would probably save some people from the minor annoyance in the future :)

    Thanks for the help.
