Today we tried to activate another Windows 7 machine and received the following error:
The software Licensing Service reported that the computer could not be activated. The count reported by your Key Management Service (KMS) is insufficient. Please contact your system administrator.
I actually installed Windows using a VL copy of Windows 7 and not via an .wim image.
When I check our actual count I saw it was 20. So I reloaded it again and checked the count and this time it says its 18. The count at one time was well above 25 because I have activated many other systems before this with no issues.
What would be causing the count to decrease. I have read many documents as to why it will not increase but none stating why it would decrease.
