Windows Activation Error 0x8007000D

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Installation' started by John Schroeder, Jun 1, 2006.

  1. I get a Windows Activation Error on Beta 2, which I downloaded from Connect
    and installed as an upgrade over Windows XP Pro. Error Code 0x8007000D.
    "More information" tells me "the data is invalid".

    I used the Beta 2 Business key I got on connect. I haven't tried the Home
    or Enterprise Server keys I got yet.

  3. Are the Beta 2 keys limited to one activation on one machine only? Previous
    keys seemed to work on multiples, which is good in my environment (I'm trying
    to let my helpdesk get some experience with the product).

  4. Nah you can update about 10 machines on one single key - thereabouts. Might
    depend on which program you're attached to, but if the worst comes to the
    worst, just generate a new key from MSDN or Connect.

    Try uninstalling daemon tools if you have it installed!

    I should have also said, if Daemon Tools is the cause then after
    un-install of DT and a successful activation don't re-install DT as
    your Vista becomes "de-activated" again and re-activation will fail
    until DT is removed.

    I upgraded from xp pro as well and I have registered 3 or 4 times. Site says
    thank you for registering but keep getting balloon popup that says I am not
    activated and only have 9 days left. Can't be just this small amount of
    people having this issue. I have even gotten confirmation email everytime I
    have registered/activated vista.
