WMC activation key

Post by nickk »

On most systems the Digital Cable Adviser automatically generates and registers the product key needed for WMC to use an OCUR tuner.

If WMC detects the HDHomeRun Prime CableCARD tuners but prompts for a product activation key then enter the following key:

If the above key reports that is invalid, first verify that you have typed it correctly. If it continues to not work, close WMC, open a command prompt, and run:

Code: Select all

cscript %systemroot%\system32\slmgr.vbs -dlv
You should see 2 entries, one for Windows 7, <edition> Edition, and one for Windows 7, OCUR add-on for Ultimate,HomePremium,Enterprise,Professional,ServerHomePremium. Ignore the one for regular Windows 7. If the License Status for the OCUR add-on shows as Unlicensed, open a command prompt as Administrator (Start > Programs > Accessories > right click on Command Prompt, choose Run as Administrator) and run the following:

Code: Select all

cscript %windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato <activationid>
Where <activationid> is the Activation ID listed under the OCUR add-on.

Code: Select all

cscript %windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato 4a8149bb-7d61-49f4-8822-82c7bf88d64b
