    Windows 8.1


    Can I get help with this please? I found two keys using Belarc Advisor. I tried both but they didn't work for me at all. Can someone please help? I have Windows 8.1 (Build 9600).

    Update on mine. I purchased from G2A.com a windows 8.1 Pro key for 26 ($40 ish). Worked perfectly. Bummer I had to end up buying one thanks to the person that built my PC but hey, cheap enough. Thanks for all your help guys.

    ABY660: This may be the way you will need to go. Nothing seemed to work for me.
