COKEDUDEUSF Posted June 26, 2018 Share Posted June 26, 2018 I keep getting harassed to activate my Windows 8. So I do as it says. I try to activate Windows and it never works. I have a legal version of Windows that I bought from Toshiba so I don't understand what the problem is. When I do the change pc settings, activate It says can not activate right now. When I do this method from an elevated command prompt I get the message use slui.exe. Slmgr /ipk XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX When I use slui.exe It says can not be activated right now. The two options I have found to disable this message are below. Its ridiculous that I have to do this when I have a legal version of Windows. Open Regedit then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\sppsvc and right side select Start the right click and Modify change value to 4. Open Regedit. Then go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion \SoftwareProtectionPlatform\Activation In the right pane of the registry editor, you will find REG_DWORD value ‘Manual’. Right-click on it and select Modify. In the Value Data window which appears, change the DWORD value to 1. The default is 0 which means auto-activation is enabled. Changing the value to 1 will disable auto-activation. Close the Registry Editor and restart your system. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
