    8.1 activation after installing WMC ERROR CODE 0XC004C4AA


    I have a Windows 8.1 which I upgraded from my purchased W-8.

    Decided to order the Windows 8.1 Media Center Pack.
    Ordered online, $9.99 and installed.

    Got Windows Activation screen saying Windows can't activate right now. Try activating later. If that doesn't work, contact support.

    The *******B7TTT Current product key is the new one I just received.
    Entering my old W-8 key doesn't work.

    Out of interest did you reboot? It did that to me but for the life of me I cant remember what I did. Or if it just became available after waiting.

    Hey


    Method 1:
    You can try this first in a elevated command prompt:

    Code:
    slmgr.vbs -ipk insert product key"
    Method 2:
    Check your system time is correct.

    Method 3:
    You can check for any corrupt system files with the process below.

    Winkey plus 'X'
    Choose Command Prompt (Admin)
    Type
    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    then Enter

    Hope that helps!

    cheers,
    Harry

    I don't think I've ever had an Aussie and a Brit contribute together to solve one of my posts.

    Way to go antspants!

    This is a good lesson to never be afraid to suggest a logical first step. Also, nice suggestion by Harrylowt too!
