  1. Product Key


    Hey guys,


    Just recently built my new PC. My friend sent me a product key to use, and it worked, but doesn't work. My Activate Windows is gone, but when I go into About PC It says "We cant activate Windows on this device right now. You can try activating it later or go to the store and buy a genuine Windows. Error Code: 0XC004F025." Anyway. I was able to buy a genuine product key through my Microsoft Vendor at work. Yet, when trying to change my product key, it says "The product key you entered didn't work".


    Is there any other option besides re-installing windows 10, and hoping this genuine product key works? I don't want to have to deal with my M.2 drivers again, and have to re-install all the software/games I've downloaded.


    Thanks in advance!

    :)

    Product key

    Hi Megan,

    A product key is used when activating a software.
    To help us determine the appropriate troubleshooting steps that can resolve your concern, we'd like to ask the following questions:

    • What product are you trying to activate?
    • Are you looking for the product key to activate your Office application?
    • Which version of Office are you trying to activate? To check this, you can perform the steps posted on this
      link.
    • Are you looking for the product key to activate your Windows?

    We look forward to your response.

    Where is my Product Key if I want to re-install?


    Like davidhk said. But if you really want to see your windows key, I would suggest Belarc advisor. It will give you some useful information about your system, product keys of your software is among them (not only Microsoft, you will have listed most of your keys).

    • Press Windows key + X
    • Click Command Prompt (admin)
    • Enter the following command: wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey
    • Then hit Enter
    The product key will be revealed, copy the product key then enter it.
