Vista Ultimate Activation

    Question

  • My computer tells me this is not a genuine version of windows. On start up I'm asked to activate and then requests my activation code. That then tells me error 0xC004F061. That licencing has determine this is for upgrading. I then Install product key from computer and that tells me I need a vista ultimate code. What do I have to do {without loosing my data) to get vista ult. activated. Could you maybe send me an activation code that will work? John Graham jumpingjlg@aol.com

    You have to have purchased Ultimate to be able to use it – For what version and edition of Windows is your computer licensed, according to the COA sticker on the case?
     
    To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool (download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
    Once saved, run the tool.
    Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
    To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
      - **in your own thread**, please
     
     
    If you can't access the desktop....
     
    If you do not have access to the Start Button:
    1) Login to Vista and click the option that brings up Internet Explorer.
    2) Type: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 into the browser address bar.
    3) A window will come up asking if you want to “Run” or “Save”, Select “Run”
    4) When the program runs, click the “Continue” button, then click the “Copy” button (IGNORE any error messages at this point).
    5) Return to this thread
    6) In a reply post, paste the Diagnostic Report (by right-click select Paste or by using Ctrl+V)
