The software licensing service reported that the computer bios is missing a required license


All of a sudden yesterday, a user tells me Windows 7 (OEM license from Dell) is informing him he needs to activate Windows. This computer system is much less than a year old, and also Victory 7 was triggered as soon as I collection it up for him.

You watching: The software licensing service reported that the computer bios is missing a required license

When trying to activate (again), I acquire this:

"A trouble occurred as soon as Windows tried to activate. Error Code 0xC004F063. For a feasible resolution, click More Indevelopment (link to the following)."

"Error Details: The following information was found for this error:Code: 0xC004F063Description: The Software Licensing Service reported that the computer system BIOS is missing a compelled license."

WTH does this mean? Googling the code gets me shed in Vista problems, none of which actually tells me exactly how to settle it.

Any ideas?

Somewright here I review to flash the BIOS. What does that mean, and also exactly how would certainly I perform it? I recognize, that"s probably a very basic attribute and I should probably know it already...

I would call Dell if it is much less than a year old, it is under warranty. Make it their trouble given that it is an OEM license.

Flashing the BIOS would be downloading the driver from the dell site, most likely the very same version, and also running that file. It will certainly flash the BIOS via a fresh copy of the file.

Philip"s links might provide you a better solution than flashing the BIOS though. Can"t watch that being it.

I saw this after upgrading a Success 7 Home version to Premium. The machine had MS Security Essentials on it, which has actually the validation tool developed in. A re-downpack and also install of MSE (and a scan) addressed it for me.

If none of this sounds familiar, I would contact Dell ASAP, in case the grace duration on the non-authentic license expires quickly.

Major *FACEPALM*

This was the computer that I posted around, about two months back. The user had actually infected himself through a trojan and I had to reinstall Windows. Apparently as soon as I gotten in the installation vital, I used our license essential instead of the essential from the OEM sticker on height of the machine. I gotten in that number and it activated.

Oh well, this most likely isn"t the stupidest point I"ve done, yet it"s pretty cshed.

*facepalm*

You would be far from the first to have this happen to them. Although, with this product called "vivaworldcup.info" you could"ve added it as a note under the machine being scanned...

Hey, I"ve heard about this "vivaworldcup.info" you"re talking about! I never also assumed about adding notes attached to the computer. I have seen the area you"re talking about, simply never offered it. I commonly put them in a tough copy file folder for a user"s computer. This will get rid of LOTS of paper.

Thanks for the tip, Magnus. I guess it"s simply a "duh!" sort of day.

Hey, I"ve heard around this "vivaworldcup.info" you"re talking about! I never before also believed around adding notes attached to the computer system.

Thanks for the reminder, Magnus. I guess it"s simply a "duh!" kind of day.

Quite albest, when I taught the remainder of my staff to connect their documentation to either a merchant or the machine in question, points got a lot much easier to track. I especially loved the capability to track contracts making use of the merchant / agreements section.

Set as preferred. You can carry out hands-on backups whenever before you desire, but I favor to schedule mine. The default location for the backups is C:/Program Files/vivaworldcup.info/Backup (yes, the slashes are the "wrong" way)
