Windows Activation Error, "Service has not been started" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Yeah, so I've been running Windows 7 for a few months after wiping my hard drive with my genuine windows 7 installation disc and now Windows is telling me that my copy is not genuine. 

    So I tried to go through the steps that the activate online window led me to, it worked until I reset my computer.

    After resetting, Windows went back to telling me that my copy is not genuine.

    After activating online failed, I tried to re enter my product key, after doing that a message box saying "Service has not been started" pops up.

    Later, I looked up a solution on google and it led me to this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icLOqN-hLns I followed the steps and the activation problem still didn't go away.

    I tried to re activate the Software Licensing service but when i went to services.msc, "Software Liscensing" Isn't there!

    I am at my wit's end here, I have a physical copy of Windows 7 but I don't want to wipe my system again!

  • Software Protection is the service name.

    WGADiag info looks fine, and no Notification reason is present. So the underlying OS is activated. Make sure your date and time is correct.

    From an elevated command prompt, run slmgr -ato
    Make sure you are connected to the internet. If it gives you an error code, post it here.
