  3. Win 10 activation is expiring - volume license

    Finally got it activated but still confused as to what is really going on with activation.

    here is what I did:

    -got another Win7 Pro key from a friend (non volume license one)
    -I tried to activate it, but it gave the same error message as before, "could not activate with this key"
    -following suggestion above, I tried it a second time. This time it activated !!! (internet was connected both times)

    don't know why just doing it 2 times makes it work. maybe someone else can explain that.

    I checked it with ShowkeyPlus and to my surprise it now said it was activated and showed the installed key as the generic Win10Pro key that is listed in above post. But I did not enter that key. ????

    unable to validate license-15

    Hello,

    I started using Nokia maps and i received the following error when trying to buy navigation maps:

    unable to validate license-15

    This was shown after the list of maps where retrieved, after the Update yes/no screen. Also in some cases after this step the application closes completely.

    Did someone have this problems ?

    I'm using a Nokia E50.
