    [Help] Windows 8 Activation Problem


    Greetings. I have a little problem about activation Windows 8. The problem is that I can't see "current edition" on Windows Activation. I have tried to put all different product keys and I have done the CMD thing, but until I realized that my friend has current edition as Windows 8 Pro and about mine, it doesn't show anything, i can show you that from the picture belowClick image for larger version, so is there any way to activate it even I have Windows 8? Sorry about my bad English, but hope you understand what I meant.

    Please open anElevated Command Prompt window (in Start, type 'Command' - a Command Prompticon will appear, right-click on it, and select Run as Administrator)
    At the Prompt, type

    Licensingdiag.exe -report%userprofile%\desktop\report.txt -log %userprofile%\desktop\repfiles.cab

    (note the spaces!)
    two files will beput on your desktop -
    open the'report.txt' file in Notepad, and copy/paste the results to your response - youcan ignore the repfiles.cab file for the moment, as it's only backup data

    Which space did you mean? And I didn't get any notepad text files?

    You are using a KMS license Key on this install - you also have a Tampered system file. C:\WINDOWS\system32\slwga.dll

    Start by attempting to fix the file problem using SFC /SCANNOW from an Elevated Command Prompt.
    Let us know the results, and post another Licensingdiag report.


    What edition of Windows was shipped with the machine? the current version is Win 8 Pro, and it looks as if the machine shipped with Windows 7 installed. Was this an Upgrade license, or a full one? did you use an Upgrade install, or a clean install?

    Also it worked, I got the current edition back as "Windows 8 Pro" and now I only need to activate it?

    Do I need to write it to CMD and do it again like before to show it to you?
