Multiple Activation Key has exceeded its limit

    Question

  • hi,

    I am getting an "0xC004C020 error" while activating Windows 7.

    and workaround to this is "Contact the Product Activation Call Center to obtain a new MAK or to increase the activation limit on the existing MAK"

    is there any other alternative this ? can I simpy not increase the limit on my own without contacting MS.

    You will be required to contact Microsoft Product Activation support for this issue. There are no alternatives other than using the expiration period and re-activating when it expires. You only have 3 re-arm activations from installation.

    For licensing related issue, you’d better contact Microsoft licensing team. In the United States and Canada, you may call the licensing team directly at 1-800-426-9400 (select option 4), Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. (PST) to speak directly to a Microsoft licensing specialist. In this way, you will know the detailed information about license.
