Re: Activation of my Windows Vista Enterprise

I would like to thank everyone who replied to my post (so quick!). THis was
the first time I used this forum.
Unfortunately my information wasn't complete. I'm sorry for that.
The installation is on my home PC which is connected with my small wireless
network via a Linksys router. Furthermore, I can work on the Internet
normally through this same computer, so I don't understand the reason of this
error message concerning the DNS-name.
The MS-KISS license is a volume license for educational organisations (cfr.
schools). I'm a teacher and I have the permission to use this license key at
home under the license agreement between my school and Microsoft.
Meanwhile only 2 days left before my Vista wil not work properly anymore. So
I'm a bit concerned.
Kind regards,

R. Broeckhoven

But, Microsoft has put a stop to the pirating of them, as in what happend in
XP days , by requiring that they be re-activated every 6 months via a
specific Server.

If this poster does not know how, it is stolen!

So I'm unable to activate my Windows Vista. This may result in problems
within 3 days.
My vista license is a MS-KISS license.

Aren't all Enterprise licenses volume licenses, which aren't activated
via the Activation Wizard, but use a local activation server?

Enterprise licenses are not consumer licenses, anyway.

Hopefully, I am misinformed.

Talk to your System admin, if possible.
