Re: Vista Activation

Theres a command you can use to re-arm the 30 day trial in order to get up to 120 days.

I realise this fix has come a little late for you but i'll post anyway, it may help other users.

First, type in cmd.exe from your windows search box and open it up.

Net ensure that the command line is showing the following path:


It should point to the correct directory by default but just in case it hasnt type in:

cd c:\Windows\System32\ then <return>

Next you need to access the command in this folder to re-arm the 30 day limitation, so type in:

cscript slmgr.vbs -rearm <return>

Then restart and you will have another 30 days. This script can be used up to a maximum of 120 days :D

Asking for activation key

Microsoft wants you to register your software with them, they will then give you the activation key. You should find your are given the option to do this. If you have reinstalled your vista then microsoft have locked it down to only one activation via the web. This means you will need to give Microsoft a call for them to give you a activation code.

Can anyone send me the activation key for vista home basic its very urgent pls,...! to my email

This is illegal and by doing so could lose you your right to use Windows Vista.

I strongly recommend you do not ask questions like that on FixYa as you could be prosecuted by Microsoft if they could prove that you have used a counterfeit or non-genuine activation key.  

If you already own a product key and just need an activation code, you can ring Microsoft or activate it over the Internet. If your Product Key is Genuine and you bought it then Microsoft will Activate it for you.

Hope this helps.
