Can't activate Windows 8.1 due to product key issue

  1. #31


    Evening Superfly. Just re-visiting my issue (Thanks again btw for your support). I'm being a total noob here but If I purchase another Key and enter that one it should work right? It will just activate my current windows? Really don't want to have to do a fresh install....

    Thanks

    Hi Jutt, yes as long as the key matches the version that's installed, it will be fine.

    Superfly I am not sure how to send a PM the key info to you. I see no option to send a private message.

    OK Ed, You are good to go:

    Key Status : Valid
    PID : 00258-61210-40785-AAOEM
    Product Description : Win 8.1 RTM Core OEMM
    Edition ID : Core

    I'll run it through SkowKeyPlus as well to test in debug environment.

    Means you can install Windows 8.1 from the link KHYI gave you and it will activate automatically.

    I ran your key on my machine and it checks out with ShowKeyPlus as well... must have been your licence files were corrupted.

    The installed version/key is obviously mine but the OEM's are yours...
