Product Key Update Tool RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am tring to move an XP Pro product key that I had previously been using on a now disassembled PC to a new (homebuilt) PC but, am getting the following message from the Windows Product Key update Tool: "The new product key you are using to update has been previously used or is already in use."  What are my options?  Any ideas what to do?  Thanks!

  • I found a solution based on some other posts.  I perfromed the registry edit discussed in the volume licensning leaked key solution then re-ran the Product Key Update Tool.  It was not smooth, but it worked. - G
