A client asked me to discover why the Windows on one of his machines need to be activated, all of a sudden and out of the blue
I checked various aspects of his machine, and finally tried to activate his product key by phone: it was rejected
I therefore told my client that his product license was fake.
Asked to fix this situation, I ordered a license key via eBay.
I integrated it using the following two commands:
slmgr.vbs -ipk (your product key)
I then navigated to the following site:
I will now attempt to validate this present product key via phone.
Any ideas or opinions ?
Personally I'm beginning to wonder whether I haven't forced my client to purchase a new key while in fact his original key was fine to start with.
