    I used the kms thing, as per sticky atop the page, successfully, at least so I thought. Today, trying to use advanced tokens manager, it returned 'not permanently activated' error msg, so I looked further. Running pidgen turned up 'invalid key', located in a file called 'blacklist' or some such.

    I mean, I'm a big boy...I can take it... just, what is my best course of action from here.
    I'm running win8 pro, with no 'media center' crap installedice would, of course, be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks.

    I was more concerned with the 'invalid key' report.... the rest was just describing how I got there...

    You can always generate a different key that has the same base as your 'blacklisted' one using KeyInfo from Bob65536.
    Then you can replace your existing key with the newly generated one and reactivate through KMS.
