Windows 7 activation error 068 key RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I just purchased a retail license o windows 7 ultimate that I was not able to activate. By googling I arrived here with the strong suspect that I got a fake/blocked key. I run the MGADIAG which I post below, and I would like to confirm if my key is genuine or not.

  • I'm sorry to tell you but you did not purchase a retail copy of Windows.  Unfortunately you purchased a counterfeit with an MSDN product key instead. 

    Your Product ID line shows that you are using an MSDN product key.  Since you are not the subscriber who was issued this product key, it is invalid for your use.

    Windows Product ID: 00426-068-3377564-86885

    The 068 is the MSDN indicator.  Your retail box and its contents is a counterfeit product.  Many counterfeit copies are being sold on eBay and the Amazon Marketplace as well as various websites around the world.  The product key is not a genuine retail PK.  It is a genuine MSDN product key and so will activate and pass as genuine until it is blocked by Microsoft as an MSDN key in use by a nonsubscriber.  It takes a while for MS to detect and complete processing of abused keys.  The seller plans to be doing something else by then.

    Pursue a refund for an item not as described immediately.  Do not accept a replacement product key from the seller.  It will be from the same source.

    Report the incident to Microsoft at

    To see how good these knock-offs are becoming, see

    Buy a copy of Windows from a rock solid seller like the Microsoft Store or Amazon Corp (not an affiliate).
