  • Uh,I encountered the same issue with you. I am from China,and try to activate my Windows 7 retail edition via Internet,but failed,and it told me two last days remaining to automaticatly activate via Internet. I completed my Win7 os setup on 14th,Feb. 2010,and tried activation on thay day and on today now,but the response is the same as you said.The description about the error code"0xC004C017" is in chinese "激活服务器确定此地理位置的产品密钥已被阻止", maybe that translated in English is "the activation server defines the windows product key at this location is stoped". I'am assure I have the genuine Windows 7 retail edition for use only in china, and I‘am now here in china mainland. I suppose the error has something to do with MS’s  coming new WGA system ,or somewhat about Chinese Festival? I'am tying to dial for techinal help,but this si the-7-day-long festival now here in China , so I can't get any help from MS. 
    I'am urgent to get reply from MS and to solve this probelm about Error 0xC004C017 .

    Try doing a manual activation.

    1. Click Start, and in the Search box type :  slui.exe 4

    2. Press ENTER on your Keyboard

    3. Select your Country.
    4. Select the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person.
