[Micronet] windows 7 key

Lucy Greco

Hello: could someone on campus with a windows 7 key give me a call to check the key you have with the one I am using. My laptop keeps saying I have a unlicensed version of windows and I keep losing my system settings when it does that.  I now have to different keys from shi and I want to check then against one that is working so I can re set the key on this system. Thanks Lucy

I see that no one wants to take this on. Lucy, I'm not a Windows expert
by any means, but here's my 2 cents:

If your laptop says that your license is invalid, there should be an
path to activate Windows by entering a valid License code. This happened
to me when I moved a hard drive from one laptop to another (identical)
laptop. I wasn't able to re-validate Windows 7 over the internet, but
the phone activation works.

Now more than ever it's important to track which Windows code is used to
activate each computer it's installed on.

HTH, Paul

There is an application in Control Panel that lets you enter the key
code. It doesn't ask during installation.

Hi everyone,

I've been working with Lucy on this off-list.

It appears that the edition of Windows 7 she has installed doesn't work with
our SHI provided Windows 7 Enterprise edition key.

We've tried my suggestions of using the slgmr.vbs with various switches and
the SHI keys, but these don't work on her machine.

At some point in the near future, Lucy may try rebuilding the machine in
question with a known good image from SHI, using the Windows 7 Enterprise
software and the provided key.
