Problem with Windows product key update tool... RRS feed

  • Question

  • Once I start running the program to update my CD key, after the scan I get the following message:

    The application has encountered an error while downloading required files from microsoft. Please ensure the machine is connected to the internet and try again. [Error: 0x80004005]

     

    What gives?

  • Athlonman,

    Basically that error means that the Product activation program is having a problem with your firewall, or some type of antivirus program is preventing the program from gathering the proper data in order to complete its task. If you do have these, temporarily turn them off and run the program again,

    Does that solve the problem?

    Thanks,
