  • Hi,

    What's the error message occur?

    I noticed you get this product key from your friend, so make sure there is no one use it as one product key for one device. If your friend use it before, and you want to transfer it to your device, make sure your friend have removed the key from his device.

    Make sure the product key is a valid retail version rather than COA sticker key of your friend. 

    For activation online, type Run in search box to open Run box. Then type "slui 3" in run box to get activation windows. Then enter your product key in this activation windows.

    For activation for phone, please type "slui 4" in run box to get a call number. 

    Bests,
