    Hi there,
    I took part to the Windows Viusta Customer Preview Program. I have purchased
    the Windows Vista Beta 2 DVD box that Microsoft has sent me home, here in
    I was very delighted when I saw both versions of Vista (X86 and X64). I
    installed them both (on my laptop and on my desktop, which has a 64 bit CPU).
    Everything worked fine.
    I then decided to download Windows Vista RC1, both versions. I installed the
    X86 ok, my old product key worked fine (The one I have received with the BETA
    2). When I tried installing the RC1 X64, the product key did not work. I
    checked it many times, but i am sure I typed it in correctly. I only used 3
    of the 10 licenses that come with the BETA2 PK.

    Can anyone give me a hint?

    Thanks in advance for your help

  2. Have you tried installing RC1 Ultimate without the key, then apply the key
    after it is installed?

    No I have not tried yet, but I'll surely let you know how it went.
    Thanks for your fast reply.

  4. To insert the key after installing, click Start > right click Computer >
    Properties > under Windows Activation, click the link "Change Product Key".
