    Windows 8.1 Pro Generic key?


    Hi, where is the "new" generic key to enter in this string? Click image for larger version because I have inserted XHQ8N-C3MCJ-RQXB6-WCHYG-C9WKB and GCRJD-8NW9H-F2CDX-CCM8D-9D6T9 , but do not work. does anyone know if there are any keys "new"?

    The key you show here is for Windows 8.1 Pro.

    I Believe the key for Windows 8.1 Preview is this if it still works

    I don't think you can run the Preview any longer, (as of Jan 15/2014)

    Windows requires its own Product Key, what you get when you purchase Windows or an OEM computer with Windows installed, can be activated only on one computer. Could be an Enterprise customer is different as companies have difficulties keeping track of all their computers.

    Yep, you will not be able to install Windows 8.1 Preview anymore, or use a generic key with it.
