The product key could not be validated. Check the error log for details.

I am unable to convert my SharePoint 2007 Trial to Full, whenever I enter the product key, I get this message.

Finally, I had to thrash that machine, re-install Windows, SQL and MOSS and the same key worked like a breeze! - Actually, the particular thing I did before this product went from showing as original to trial is when I installed Microsoft ForeFront Client Security on the same server. This was trial and somehow I feel this when it got itself attached with SharePoint, it converted SP to trial itself, unbelievable, but this is what I think happened! (how dod a SP installation which was not showing suddenly can chance to trial!!?)

is your new key from MSDN Team Suite Licence? If so you will need to call MS and ask them for a different key.

I checked the ULS Logs using the ULSViewer, There are no log messages. Event viewer too, does not show any messages. I tried multiple keys, but still the same message. I somewhere read that I should run the "Enable Features on Sites" found just above the "Convert License Type" option, but that isn't really working as well.

did you use sharepoint setup with sp2 included.
I read a microsoft article about that (setup with sp2 included ) could cause this error.

I think I had installed SP2 later. Didn't install with it. (Installed had been done a month before where it was left as Trial and now when I am attempting to change it, I am faced with this!). What do you suggest?

sp3? I find that only WSS has Sp3, MOSS 2007 also has SP3? Please confirm.

KarthickSethuAuthor Commented:
Do you have the links for the MOSS 2007 Sp3? I can only find WSS Sp3

KarthickSethuAuthor Commented:
Infact, I think the SP3 for WSS I found is for WSS 2.0 - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=2bbfc89b-eb59-49ff-b58f-684693cb25a7 - So I do not think there is any SP3 for WSS 3.0 or MOSS 2007. Can you please point me to the links if there are available?
