Hi Zack - you were right the activation service was not installed. I did the
install - but I still have the same problem and the same error. Could it be
"activation overload" om the serveres?

Hi Zack - thx - you were right. The activation service was not installed. I
have Installed it, but it haven┬┤t solved the problem - though I now can
connect to windows update.

Hello.

I clicked a link on Gizmodo.com today that led me to a page that stated 100k
downloads of Pre-RC 1 Build 5536. I downloaded just fine and did not see
anywhere a place to register or obtain an activation key.

When I installed I bypassed that step, (foolishly), thinking there was some
magic or tracked activation voodo in the actual download.

Now it looks like I have 14 days to activate and no key. Am I screwed? Is
there a way to rollback to my previous build, (xp pro)?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I'm currently in the same situation, if anyone could point us towards a
solution or simply tell us that there are no further activation keys
available, then that would be very useful.

What I ended up doing was calling the 800 number listed in the activation
section. I punched in my code- of course it didn't work, but then I was
transferred to a person and she gave me an activation key.

All I did was to activate it over the phone and spoke to an operator at
Microsoft who gave me a 42 digit key code to do so, works great.

I think I am having to reinstall Vista from scratch as it has partly
corrupted.

Will I be able to activate over internet again or will I have to
telephone Microsoft?

Any help appreciated

Yes, you can activate over the internet. But if the activation is not
successful (depends on how long it's been since your last activation),
you will be given a toll-free number to call. It's all pretty painless
and fast. No worries.
