Windows Vista Home Premium Product Key You Type Is Invalid For Activation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings!

    Yesterday when I opened one of my laptops which was bought as HP Pavilion dv5 with preloaded Vista Home Premium years ago,  it told me the message as the one listed in Title. I know many of the folks here have similar problem but I am not sure if they are same. The laptop and Vista are all legally purchased from a retailer, but it said I have an invalid License after a few years. Here is a report I obtained from MGA Diag Tool (thanks to those links here that guide me to dowload one from microsoft).

    Hi, Noel,

    Thank you so much for such a quick reply!

    Before I took a look at the steps what you suggested, I tried the following (most of them are same as what you wrote) and it worked after step 7.

    1. Open an IE window;

    2. Type %windir%\system32\cmd.exe in the address bar;

    3. A window with black background popup;

    4. Type slui.exe 3, and hit the Enter;

    5. Type the Product Key I collected from my laptop; // it looks quite different from the one in the MGA Diag report

    6. Click the next button;

    7. Successful!

    BTW, I restored my Windows to a previous settings (but it didn't help) before I did the above.

    Anyway, your instant message is greatly appreciated as well.

    Yep - not surprised that your solution worked, as it will also probably have reset the Licensing store.
     
    The reason the two Keys were different was that your machine came installed with an OEM_SLP Key (as is normal for large manufacturer's machines - it's the same for all machines of that model), while the Key on your COA Sticker is called the COA_SLP Key, and is unique to your machine. It  is intended as a backup specifically for that sort of situation. If you run the MGADiag tool again, you'll see the change in the Key description.
     
    The reason that I posted my method is that it forces a re-evaluation of the Licensing store first - and only then does it request inputting the Key if necessary, so you may have got away without having to use your COA Key at all.
