Problem with activation of win 8
« on: March 25, 2013, 10:21:35 AM »
Hello to everybody here... I face a critical problem... I have a valid key of win 8 but some days ago when everything was fine it showed up a message on my screen that I have to activate my win 8. I used many times the program tweaking.com windows repair (all in one) with no effect... When I go to retype my activation key it says "the key number of the product works. Go on when you are ready" and then I click on activation tab and a pop up appears saying that "the system cannot locate the specific disk route". Please can you tell me what I should do to solve my problem? Thank you in advance.

Thank you very much for your immediate reply to my problem.. Few minutes ago I managed to locate the problem... I had delete an invalid entry in my registry which was the win 8 software protection... Deleting that there was no any route to validation so, I restored and everything is ok now... Thank you again and sorry for your precious time...

Glad you got it working :-)

What reg key was it that it needed?

Well they were 2 invalid entries which I restored them both... Both are located as exe's in system32 folder of windows and the first called spoolsv.exe and the second sppsvc.exe I think that the second is the windows softweare protection at a percentage of 99% . But I have to check it out more to be 100%. So, Shane take that into consideration for the next version of your repairing tool and please send me the link to download it too... Thank you again.

spoolsv.exe is just the print spooler service.

sppsvc.exe is Microsoft Software Protection Platform Service

What where the actual reg keys though?

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sppsvc\      if you mean that!

The program checks for updates when you run it, and when I put an update out I post on the facebook page for the site :-)

I need to do an update soon. I have a bunch of small changes I need to get done :-)
