Activator windows vista business - Free Download
About 2 months ago, it crashed and wouldn't start up. I sent it to my Uncle, who runs a PC repair company, and he had to completely wipe the Hard Drive or possibly replace it - makes no difference to me as I lost all my files either way. When I got the laptop back, it came with Windows Vista Business, but no Microsoft Office or any other programs, just the very basics. It was running as normal but recently began to ask me whether I want to "Activate Now" or "Activate Later" every time I log on.
When I click "Activate Now" it asks me to enter the product key which I found on the bottom of my laptop. However, it says "The product key you entered is invalid". I rang my Uncle and he told me I have to contact Microsoft and give them my old product key, and they'll generate a new one for me.
I have had great trouble and no luck contacting Microsoft. The computer was purchased in Ireland, but I am now living in the UK, if that holds any significance. Did this solve your problem? Sorry this didn't help. First, you're confusing several programs. Second, I believe your uncle is incorrect - I know of no Microsoft channel or program that will let you get a new key for a copy of Windows you are not entitled to use. You are, by the fact that your computer came with Windows Home Basic or Premium, whichever it had installed, entitled to use a copy of Vista Home Basic or Premium but not Vista Business.
Finally, I would suggest that if all this software came loaded on your computer, you contact the computer manufacturer and get a copy of their system restore or recovery discs, which will let you reinstall all the software that originally came with the computer and will have valid licenses for everything it installs.
