    I did as you suggested. What is it that I am looking for with this report. I am having one heck of a time activating a legal Win 8 Pro. Please advise. Thanks. Pia

    Thanks for the quick reply Todd. Is there any way that I can attach it to a message. It does not look like it. I am a little uneasy with posting my OEM on a site. Any suggestions? Thanks. Pia

    Where did you get the original PC from? - The error is one associated with VLK's (KMS GVLK /MAK etc) and you talking about OEM (?) The info generated has no personal info - so why so hesitant? The error code on it's own is insufficient to help you...

    ED: See you PM'd it....

    Where did you get the original PC from? - DELL.

    The error is one associated with VLK's (KMS GVLK /MAK etc) and you talking about OEM (?) DELL COMPUTER HAS AN OEM. WIN 8 PRO 64 BIT ACTIVATED AND THEN IT DEACTIVATED SIX MONTHS LATER. I TRIED DOING THE KMS MYSELF. CAN'T GET IT TO WORK. WIN 8 IS FUNCTIONING FINE. I CAN'T ACTIVATE IT AFTER AN WIN 8 UPDATE.

    The info generated has no personal info - so why so hesitant? WHY DO YOU NEED PERSONAL INFO? SUCH AS WHAT?

    The error code on it's own is insufficient to help you...EXPLAIN THIS?


    ED: See you PM'd it....WHAT IS PM? THANKS. PIA

    Sorry about that!

    PM is 'Private Message' - through the back servers on the forum.

    I still haven't seen the results of your LicensingDiag??
