WHERE DO I PUT ACTIVATION CODE?


Hello c:

In case you have a Windows *********** and don't know where to put it after installation : - In Windows 10:

Select Start, then Settings > Update & security > Activation > Change ***********, and just put it there.

- Or in Windows 7:

Start, Control panel > System > Change ***********.

- Alternative solutions ( Windows 10/8.1/8/7 ):

* Search for "Slui.exe " ( easiest is in the start menu ) and run the program as administrator. A window will pop up, letting you change your ***********.

* Search for "cmd" and run command prompt as admin. A black window will appear and you will have to type this line in it :

"slmgr.vbs /ipk <Your ***********>"
Without Quotes, Then hit enter.

In case you are talking about any software/game/donut : Please specify which activation code you are refering to :D

How can I know that my vista is genuine copy or not? Please help....


To know whether you have genuine winows copy run this command in run dialog "oobe/msoobe /a" without quotes. If you get a dialog box saying that "Thanks for using our product" then you have a genuine copy of windows.

windows activation error code 0xC004F058


Quick search got this answer:



Step set #1

1) Open Internet Explorer

2) A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field

3) Find the file cmd.exe

4) Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator

5) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)

6) Hit the Enter key

7) Reboot 2 times

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step set #2


1) Open Internet Browser

2) Type %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.

3) Find the file CMD.exe

4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator

5) Type: net stop slsvc (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)

6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing

7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar

8) Type: cd %windir%\system32

9) Type net start slsvc

10) Reboot Twice

11) Windows Vista may require you to enter a Product Key [use the Certificate of Authenticity (COA)] SLP Product Key found on the sticker on the side or bottom of your computer and activate. Use the Activate by Phone method outlined below.

From the Desktop:

a) If you have access to the Start button: Click the Start button, and type in "slui.exe 4" in the search field and then press the "Enter" key. This will bring up the Activate by Phone dialog window. Follow the steps provided by the window. The phone activation process should only take about 6 minutes.


b) If you do not have access to the Start button: Reboot and login to Vista, a dialog window will come up. In that window, click the option "Access computer with reduced functionality". Once you do that, Internet Explorer or Firefox browser will open. In the address bar type "c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe" press enter, a new window will come up, type: slui 4 and hit enter and follow steps to Activate over the Phone.


This all is if you have a true bought copy of Vista. If you have a pirated version, Im sorry to say I cant help.

need file path for os activation


To check the Vista activation status is easy. Users can simply right click on “Computer” on “Start Menu”, and then click on “Properties” on the right click context menu. On “View basic information about your computer” page, scroll down to bottom, and Windows activation status is listed under “Windows activation” status.

Another way is open up the Command prompt {Start > Run > CMD} & then type in slmgr -xpr and then hit Enter.

Hope this solves your query :-)
