Error : 0xC004E003 (Can't re-activate)
Greetings Experts:

I cannot reactivate after it deactivated after I removed a viral infection.
When I tried by Internet it states that the key is in use...
I called by Phone and the number the tech gave does not match my valid
installation ID.
Please help me as this is my primary development system.
I have renamed the token file as recommended in the forums, restarted twice
and the validation process fails.

Thank you for your time,

Re: Error : 0xC004E003 (Can't re-activate)


Your activation file [ Tokens.dat ] has gone corrupt because of a Virus

Performing a virus scan using an anti-virus software will clean up
viruses but will not repair the corrupted files.

When you tried to activate Windows Vista, you get the following error
message *"Code:0xC004E003"

The software licensing service reported that license evaluation

Some times you also recieve a message *"The product key is already in

When you try phone activation, upon entering the confirmation ID you
get a message *"The confirmation ID you've entered does not appear to
match the installation ID for this computer".*

Since you've already tried to rename the tokens.dat and also executed
the command to re-install the licensing files, the only workaround to
end this problem is the following method.


Either you've to purchase a new OEM product key / Retail product key as
per the computer manufacturers or

Start backing up your files on to an external hard drive [Passport
drive] and re-install Windows Vista.

To backup files, you'll have to sign to windows by clicking on "Access
your computer with reduced funtionality".

It will take you to

Press Ctrl + O. In the dialog box, please type *explorer.exe* and run
it. If it asks you to click on *Ok*, please click it. It will ask you to
*Run*, please run it [ may be once or twice ].

Now you'll be able to see the taskbar at the bottom and make sure that
you should not close any windows which are open.

Plug in your external hard drive and start backing up the files.

Once you've backed up your critical data, go ahead and wipe out the
hard drive and start the installation.

Note*: After performing a clean installation, you need to install your
programs or applications. *

Once you re-install it, you can put the data back into the drive, but
make sure before you do that scan the data that you backed up.

Good luck,

Hope this information helps you.
