Z500 Windows 8 Activation (preinstalled Single Language)

When I check from My Computer > Properties, I am seeing that it is activated with product ID. However when I clicked on more details, I am seeing "Your windows license will expire soon" (Your license to use Windows will expire on 10/6/2013)

 

Should I worry about the expiry date?

Re: Z500 Windows 8 Activation (preinstalled Single Language)

Thanks Aala, should I wait for the expiry date to lapse or we can do the activation now? Sorry for asking this, but is that different from the Action Center Windows activation?

 

I attempted to activate using the same product key but getting this error below:

Thanks again!

Please follow the below steps

 

Right click the left hand corner of your Windows 8 screen

Click Command Prompt (Admin)

At the command prompt, type the following commands:

slmgr.vbs -ipk <your product key here>

Hit Enter on your keyboard then type:

Hit Enter

 

Please let me know once you finish

 

Thanks

Re: Z500 Windows 8 Activation (preinstalled Single Language)

Yes I did these slmgr steps earlier, and when I reactivate from Action center, that's how I get the error code, and the expiry shows Oct 2013. I did the scan now and rebooted, still no go.

 

Are there any other step to activate or is it only from the Action Center?

Hi Swrrtnix25

 

If possible, our team would like to request a diag.txt file for additional analysis.

 

To create the diag.txt file, please follow these steps:

  • As an admin: can to go cmd prompt in windows.. 
  • “cd desktop”
  • Then run:
  • “ licensingdiag.exe -report diag.txt -log diag.cab”

Please let me know

 

Thanks
