  • Question

  • Hi,

    I get following error, when I try to activate WS 2012 Datacenter evaluation version. I would like to activate 180 days trial.


    Error: 0xC004F069 On a computer running Microsoft Windows non-core edition, run 'slui.exe 0x2a 0xC004F069' to display the error text.


    How do I fix this ?

  • Two things can be going on here.  Either 1. the time/region is incorrect in Windows OR the BIOS. 2. your using volume media with a non-volume  key.

    Be kind and Mark as Answer if I helped.

  • This is probably a silly question, but are you even required to activate an evaluation? You can check how many days it's "licenced" for by running the following from an elevated command prompt:

    cscript %windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs /dlv

    Look for the "Time remaining" field.

    Cheers,

    I did check time /region, they are correct. It's an evaluation edition which I was trying to activate.

    I had been given with the trial key which I can use to activate the OS, I couldn't find remaining days in System information hence thought of activating the OS.

    slmgr /dlv gives following output

  • The exact replica of the problem but in Windows 8 Single Language license pack. Looks like there has been no any way out till now.

  • DISM.exe /Online /Get-TargetEditions

    Change your target edition

    DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerStandard /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX /AcceptEula

  • I was trying to activate an eval Server 2016 STD virtual machine (host was also Server 2016 STD) and this worked perfectly. Alternatively, using slmgr.exe commands which did not work for me.

  • I tried but still getting below message

    The specified product key could not be validated.
    Check that the specified product key is valid and that it matches the target edition.

    kindly advise 

    also tried with 

    slmgr /ipk <Windows Key>

    but error message is Error: 0xC004F069 Ona Computer running Microsoft Windows Non-Core Edition, Run 'slui.exe\ 0xC004F069' to display the error text.

    what does it mean?
