Windows 2012 KMS & Product Key Windows 8.1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I've installed a KMS Server on Windows 2012 Server (not R2).
    I've installed the KB2885698

    When I'm trying to install the Windows 8.1 KMS key via

    cscript slmgr.vbs /ipk <product key>


    I received the following error:

    Error: 0xC004F015 On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run 'slui.exe 0x2a 0xC004F015' to display the error text.

    I've found some article on the Microsoft KB but no solution is working.
    I need help :-)

  • Hi,

    If you see an error “On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run ‘slui.exe 0x2a 0xC004F015′ 

    This basically indicates that you are trying to input an inappropriate key for the KMS host (not necessarily incorrect key). Have a look at an article that explains Product key groups in detail:

    Thanks for your reply but your answer doesn't help me. This is why I've unmarked your answer.
