Windows genuine advantage activation failure in VMware server 2.0 on Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Odd one this, while using my institutes VLK (as told by a nice young sysadmin) in WMware under Ubuntu 8.10, I get a geographic region error from WGA. I can only assume it's something to do with VMware as all is well on my main XP partition on my laptop. I've posted the MGA output from that installation below, and will follow up with the VMware copy. Any ideas?

    Matt.

  • Good Morning Wkavinsky,


    Thank you for posting in the WGA Forums Wkavinsky. Based on your MGA Diagnostic results you have a geographically blocked PID.  A "Geographically blocked PID" is a Volume License Key that is valid, but was licensed solely to a corporation or larger enterprise/business. Blocked VLK's are Product Keys that Microsoft has received consent from the original owner to block usage of. A VL Product Key is non-transferrable to individuals. In order to resolve your non-genuine licensing issue, please visit: www.microsoft.com/genuine and click on "Validate Windows". When validation fails, click on the Get Genuine button which will provide information on how to acquire a WGA Kit.


    Take care,


    Stephen
