  • A "Blocked VLK" 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".

  • Trastamad,

    If you had a nongenuine installation of XP, then genuine-ized it with a WGA Kit emailed Product Key and the Product Key Updater Utility, and then reformatted and reinstalled the nongenuine XP and then tried to use the genuine Product Key and the Key Updater utility once more, that will result in the error message "Product Key already in use" that you have seen.

     

    The Key Updater Utility is intended to be used only once with a genuine Product Key as a stopgap measure to get you back to being Genuine.  In your circumstances, you will have to wait until the WGA Kit genuine XP CDROM arrives in the mail, and at that point you can do a clean installation using your emailed Product Key and the genuine hologrammed XP CDROM.
