Activation of Windows Vista required again on the same computer

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by Johnny Be Good, Oct 4, 2007.

  1. I installed a full version of Windows Vista Ultimate sometime last May 2007
    and have it activated. Just recently I got a prompt that I have to activate
    again my Windows Vista on the same computer where I installed within 3 days
    or my system will close. I tried to type in the same Product Key I have but
    the prompt I get is "The product key you typed is already in use". What will
    I do? I can not affordto buy again a Product Key sin I already bougth the
    full version before. Please help me.

  4. I have been having the same problem. See the article below.

    That is what happened to me. Hopefully Microsoft will have a fix soon.
