Tried to access 'Add features to Windows 8' on the update page. Message said "Product key won't work. Please check it and try again or try a different key".
The key I was provided when I upgraded my pc from XP to Windows 8 will not activate any more.
What can I do to restore the activation key please?
Look forward to your replies.

Using the "add features" is for adding other MS programs that requires a new product key such as "Media Center".

To activate your copy of Windows 8, go to control panel, System, and security's, system and under Windows activation, it should say Windows is activated or click to activate Windows online.
