Hi everyone,

Let's directly to the point. I used the same product key on two machines, one laptop and the other one is a desktop, both of them are running windows 8 64 bit. First use was on the desktop and validated fine. The second use was to verify that Win 8 would run on the laptop.

Through hard work, I have validated the laptop with a new product key that has passed validation. But the desktop key has become blocked.

does anyone know what could be causing this?

If you can come up a fix for this win 8 case would be greatly apprecaited.
