    found a post on the microsoft sponsored wga forum about refreshing the license store that might be useful to some members here.

    "Step set #1

    1) Open Internet Explorer
    2) A Browser will open, type: %windir%\system32 into the address field
    3) Find the file cmd.exe
    4) Right Click on the cmd.exe and select Run as Administrator
    5) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    6) Hit the Enter key
    7) Reboot 2 times

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Step set #2

    1) Open Internet Browser
    2) Type %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select Run as Administrator
    5) Type: net stop slsvc (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32

    and another post about refreshing the license store in slightly different wording:

    " Try the following:

    1) Open Internet Browser
    2) Type %windir%\system32 into the browser address bar.
    3) Find the file CMD.exe
    4) Right-Click on CMD.exe and select 'Run as Administrator'
    5) Type: net stop slsvc (it may ask you if you are sure, select yes)
    6) Type: cd %windir%\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\SoftwareLicensing
    7) Type: rename tokens.dat tokens.bar
    8) Type: cd %windir%\system32
    9) Type net start slsvc
    10) Type: cscript slmgr.vbs -rilc (It may take a long time for this to complete, please be patient)
    11) Reboot Twice
    12) You may be required to Re-Activate. Use the Activate by Phone method as outlined here:

    You can reset your Windows Vista activation by performing the following:

    1. Click on the Start button and in the Start Search box type in: slui.exe 4
    2. Press the Enter key on your keyboard.
    3. Select your Country.
    4. Follow the instructions for phone activation.
    5. Once completed, restart your computer.
    6. Afterward, visit Genuine Microsoft Software and click on Validate Windows, then restart your computer. "
