Invalid activation key

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by I need help with vista, Sep 25, 2006.

  1. i downloaded and installed windows vista RC1, using the serial key that
    microsoft's page provided me. installation finished without a hitch, but
    after i tried to log in, it said that in needed to be activated. i dont have
    a modem right now (it fried), so i called the provided number and gave the
    activation number on my screen. i then typed in the number i was given. i
    didnt get any errors while typing in the activation key, but when i clicked
    ok, it said the key was invalid. i tried it all again, got the exact same
    numbers, got the exact same respones. how do i sucessfully activate vista?

  2. Call the number again.
    This time be sure you successfully enter the key before ending the call.
    You probably mis-typed one or more characters.
