Activation Notification repeated after few activations

    Question

  • We recently deployed Windows 7 image for more then 100 computers, the setup process :

    1. While setup, the IT guy insert the windows Product Key (OEM key).
    2. After image proccess has finished the IT guy run batch file which activate windows with the slmgr /act command.
    3. Windows get activated successfully.
    4. After some time, few workstations (about half...) got the Activation Notification which says that the windows in not genuine...
    5. The IT guy re-ran the same batch file with the slmgr /act command (without changing the product key) and the output of slmgr was that the activation is successfull.
    6. Again we check and we see it really done successfully and that the windows is activated.

    We never had any hardware changes...

    I must find out what make this situation happen, I attached to this post the Diagnostic Report of some workstation which has been activated few times for that reason :

    those 4 files from the Update KB971033 are damaged. Because of this you get the non genuine message.

  • You should not need to Activate the machines again after install it.

  • To your opinion, reinstalling the KB971033 will help ...?

    Will reinstalling it will cause the activation to disappear again on already activated machines ?

    Thank you.

    I just came across this thread, in a link from elsewhere.

    FWIW the File Mismatches present in this system are NOT an error message - simply an indication that the KB971033 is not installed.

    Installing the update clears the error becuase it actually creates the C:\Windows\System32\Wat folder.

    No system will show as being non-genuine simply by way of not having the update installed.

    As far as I can tell from the report, the problem was actually in the Licensing Store, and this was likely rebuilt at the time that the WAT was installed and first ran.
