    Default Can't activate Windows 8 pro build 9200

    Hey,

    I installed Windows 8 Pro Build 9200, but cant activate it. When I open to activate it, there is a message:

    "Windows can't activate right now. Try activating Windows later. If tis issue persists, contact your system administrator or technical support department for assistance."

    Thank you.

    Did you enter the key given on the download site exactly as shown? Perhaps the download site was not legitimate and you will have to wait to buy Win 8 Pro when it is officially released.

    Most of the illegitimate sites do not have legitimate keys. You use these sites at your own risk. MS is cracking down on these illegal copies.

    You should have been asked to enter the key during the early part of the installation process.

    koway, that's great that it worked out. Hopefully this came from a legit site, the MS one. If no Hotmail or Outlook email login was required prior to download, it's NOT the right one. And if this is the case, get it off of your computer, it could be infected with who knows what.

    But what about the beginning of the install? Did you enter the key then, this is how Windows 8 is supposed to be installed. I installed the same version (8 Enterprise) & ran it a day or two, then reverted back to RP for the Media Center & better looks.

    This should have been required, entering the key (COA) before the install. It's been this way since at least Win 8 CP, possibly longer.

    If the OP had entered the key during installation this would have been a non-issue anyway.
