    Windows Vista Activation

    Okay:

    Almost there doing the upgrade to Vista. By the way a pain in the back.
    Well now i need to activate my copy with the company. The serial number
    provided in the box is not working. The system is asking me to BUY another
    one. I think I already pay gor this when i bought the software.

    What now?

    Hi Dixon,

    You will just need to do a Phone Activation.

    Call the Windows Activation Line, I just went through hell because SP1 RC
    pretty much wiped me out.
    I have called them many times. It's a royal pain, but painless
