What does activation key mean?


I am assuming by the category title that you are asking about an activation key for an Operating System. An Activation Key is something like a serial number. The OS manufacturer provides the activation key to provide copyright protection and prevent software piracy. Each key can only be used one (or as often as the OS manufacturer allows). Until you enter the key, the software is not considered activated. This may, depending upon the software, have restrictions. For example, Windows gives you 30 days to activate Windows OS. After that, it essentially shuts down, restricting use to very limited activities until the activation key is obtained and entered.

I'M LOOKING FOR WINDOW 7 ULTIMATE PRODUCT KEY


If you don't have the key (didn't pay for it) and it's not licensed to your machine, then it would be illegal to give it to you. If you bought it, contact Microsoft about it.

Dear, i reinstall window xp professional on first it asked me product key which i put after window install it again asked activation code. when i click on it window open and bring a screen with different...


> I reinstall Windows XP Professional .. it asked me [for] product key.

What CD-ROM did you use -- the CD-ROM supplied by the manufacturer (Dell, HP, eMachines, ACER) or a "non-genuine" copy on a CD-recordable disk?

Did you copy the product-key from the decal on the side-panel of the desktop
(or the decal on the bottom of the laptop) ?

Were you connected to the Internet when it "again" asked for the activation code?
If so, Windows has connected to Microsoft, to compare your product-key to a list
of "bad" ("compromised") license-keys, and it found a MATCH, indicating that you
have a "non-genuine" copy of Windows XP.

Please supply more details.

I lost my Activation Product key. I need it for my activating my Windows Vista Starter. Please help me. Thanks.


There is two steps in installing and activation Windows.
First you need the Product Installation Key to install Windows.
After Windows is installed, Windows will requite Activation. When you boot up Windows will ask you to Activate your Windows program (you are given a 30 days to activate then Windows will lock you out).
You can activate Windows over the Internet or you can activate the Windows license using the phone. If you select the phone method you need to select your country and windows will display the phone number. Then follow the screen instructions.

When i boot my pc it ask me to activate windows. pls how can i do that? i have lost my activation code, but my xp plate is with me tigether with the product key.


Your product key is your activation.If you have a valid copy of Windows just click on it where it asks you to validate.It will ask if you want to activate over the internet or by phone.If you have an internet connection it will check the key that you typed in while installing Windows.If it checks out it will say Windows has been activated and you will be good to go.If you dont have an internet connection then you can call the number that comes up on the screen.Make sure you have your Product Key handy.The person you speak to will ask you for it.

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.

Windows xp activation code


How to Activate Windows XP in 5 Minutes or Less
Having rebuilt, tested, and reloaded hundreds of computers, I’ve become keenly aware of one of the unavoidable speedbumps during setup — Windows XP’s product activation. After one too many activations, Windows complains that your product key is no longer valid or you’ve exceeded the limit. To keep Windows on the up-and-up (and stay atop the seemingly endless flood of security patches), you’ll have to activate once more with Microsoft. Here are some time-tested tips that will get you through the mandatory process in five minutes or less.

Try Internet Activation First

If you have an internet connection when activating Windows, attempt to use the online route first. In the Windows Product Activation Wizard, choose “Yes, lets activate Windows over the internet now”, followed by “No, do not register with Microsoft”. You may receive a friendly “Thank you!” and your copy of Windows will be good to go.
If internet activation fails and the Wizard complains about “too many activations” or an “incorrect product key”, you still have the option of calling Microsoft’s toll free number to activate Windows. As long as the Wizard doesn’t report “invalid product key,” options are still open. An “invalid” (not “incorrect,” mind you) key is one reported or detected as pirated, so you’ll have to find some other way to make your software go.

Phone Activation

Activating Windows via phone is about as enjoyable as a trip to the dentist, but knowing exactly which buttons to push and the right words to say can help cut your time in half and get you the necessary code.
If your online activation from above failed, click the Telephone button to generate an Installation ID, which you’ll read off to a customer service representative shortly. Call the number for your appropriate country, and you’ll enter into a phone menu system which would like nothing more than for you to activate by reading the numbers onscreen. The software behind the menu, however, does the same checking as the online activation method — meaning if your online activation failed, so too will the automated phone activation. Press 0 on the phone keypad when asked if you are calling to activate Windows XP (the first opportunity you are prompted for input). Like many newer phone menus, it will respond “I see that you’d like to transfer to a customer service representative”, and subsequently try to convince you to go back to the automated system. Ignore the pre-recorded woman’s somewhat rude request to go back, and press 1 to to talk to a human.
After a short delay and the distinct possibility of listening to some poorly chosen music, a representative will ask for either the first six digits of your Installation ID, or the full set. (The first six digits of the Installation ID are the only real keys to generating a Confirmation ID, however the reps more often than not ask you to read off the rest of the group. The rest of the numbers are encoded values detailing some very basic hardware details about your computer.)
If asked “Is this the first time you’re activating Windows?”, say yes. If you say no, the representative will ask for an explanation as to why you’re re-activating Windows.
If asked “Did you purchase the software from a retail store?”, say “It came pre-installed with my computer.”
As a final time-kill (their system sometimes takes a minute to generate Confirmation IDs on days with a particularly heavy load), you may be asked for your Product Key (Windows serial number).
After you’ve given them the necessary information, the representative will read the Confirmation ID to you, which you can simply type into the provided fields. Using these methods, it takes about 4 minutes to activate Windows on average.
