    I entered the wrong product key when i clicked to activate. How do I get windows 8 to ask me put in the product key numbers again? Can someone please tell me how.

    thx

    command prompt as admin

    slmgr /upk
    removes the key

    slmgr /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX
    (replace X with your key) adds a key

    After trying to re-enter product key i received the following msg "error 0xc0045016 on a computer running a microsoft non-core edition, run "slui.exe 0x2a 0x004e018" to display error text. Is that because i did not run command of slmgr /upk? What should i do to activate windows 8 plz?

    thx

    Why not do what he says instead of asking why it wasn't working?

    USE UPK FIRST

    guys, why diggin in the "middle ages"? your local KMS services can be done locally since quite a while. Use MTK or Heldi's or whatever ... see here for one of many examples :D
