Family Pack with upgrade 3 license code does not work for Windows 7 Home Premium

I bought Windows 7 Home Premium, with upgrade license 3 Family Pack.

Yes, it is a genuine Microsoft product, bought at best buy original and worked fine on another PC.
I tried to update one of my HP Pavilion yesterday which came with Windows Vista. Installation works well, but at the point where he asks me the license code, he says, it's the bad code and there is nothing I can do to go.

However, the requirements for the media upgrade is that you have an operating system already eligible such as Windows XP or Vista installed to use it. Since the Windows 7 end user license agreement.

15 UPDATES. To use upgrade software, you must first be licensed for the software that is eligible for the upgrade. After the upgrade, this agreement takes the place of the agreement for the software that you upgraded. After upgrade, you can no longer use the software that you upgraded.

So, if you are always denied, you will just have to reinstall Windows XP or Vista and let it do the verification of eligibility.

  • Windows Update does not work on Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2

    I have a 32-bit Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2.  I also have Norton Internet Security, which expires on 27/02/2015.  I do not often use this laptop, but when I do I update and make sure that all is correct and up-to-date.  When I went to check my updates installed there not.  When I checked Windows Update update selection has been disabled.  I choose Check For Updates and a message came that it could not, because the service is not running.  I checked MSCONFIG and depending on whether the program was running.  There is no error code!  Then I ran the Microsoft Fix It program.  The main problem was not fixed, but have some unknown minor problems.  Computer laptop operating system has been pre-installed and never put.  Norton's anti-virus program used only on the computer!  Although I tried three times I couldn't send a troubleshooting report!  Before you run the difficulty this program I disabled the Smart of Norton Firewall and Antivirus so that there would be a problem!

    It was suggested to delete all folders and files in the folder C: / / windows/C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution.  I am wary to do this, while others said that it worked for them.  Since it is a Windows folder, I'm not sure that there is not a better way to go!  I appreciate your help!  Marlene

    I have two new computers that came pre-installed with W7HP 64 bit and both are pre-installed with the product obviously not commercial office 2007 which we do not want to use.  I own copies of Office 2003 and use these products on new computers.  I tried loading Office 2003 on a PC and had a lot of errors especially trying to run Outlook 2003.  I am now using Thunderbird as it works and really miss Word/Excel 2003 - (Office 2007 ribbons wah! what were you guys thinking!)

    I have also 16 bit score test programs written and compiled years using Quickbasic 4.5 specific use in my practice.  Any ideas on how I can get those pennies W7?

    I understand that there is a professional version of Windows 7 that integrates WOW64.  This will allow me to run Office 2003 (Outlook esp) without errors?

    Can I run programs QB4.5 with W7Pro?

    If Yes, please indicate how should I proceed?

  • Master page with rollover menu, using States, does not work for all pages?


    I created my masterpage with a basic at the top menu. It has two States. The 1st State is normal and State 2 is a simple rollover behavior, just a different color.

    Why my menu would work perfectly on the page ' 01', but then the reversal function does not work for other pages? (portfolio 03 etc.). She has just the hoverover slider and the link, but the color does not change.

    I have something wrong?

    Thanks a lot for all the help on these forums

    Make sure that all the subpages have a second State added to them. You

    do not put any content on this State, but it must be present

    the transfer of work from the watch page.

    If you do not already have that second State, trying to link then cancelled

    the subpages of the master page. I came across this scenario recently

    because I had created a master page after some of my subpages have been

    already built.

  • Family timer does not work for Windows 8

    I can view the activity report and check the websites visited, but everything doesn't seem to work properly.  The time settings and the curfew does not work and when I view the reports using pc is far from what is used.


    I would like to you can check this post about delays on parental control. Refer to the post of Eugene_R.

    Time does not

    Moreover, in a resolution of the initial problem, I suggest that reconfigure you the account user. Here's how:

    In Windows 8, you can use accounts of Microsoft as a user. You just link the Microsoft e-mail account to the new standard user. Follow these steps:

    Note: Make sure that you have an internet connection to create a user with a Microsoft account.

    1. press Windows key on your keyboard to access the applications screen.

    2. tap create an account (you will be redirected to search application screen automatically).

    3. click on settings (second option with the gear icon).

    4. click on create an account on the selection to the left pane. (You may be prompted for access admin select an admin user, and then enter the administrator password).

    5. in the account management window, click Add a user account.

    6. you will be prompted to add a user, enter the Microsoft account email address in the text box then click on Next.

    7. check This is a child account? Turn on family safety for PC usage reports.

    8. click on Finish.

    After you create the child account, you can then go to the Family Safety website, log in using the parent account and then manage restrictions and control of your child options.

    Second: In case you want your child free of any restriction which actually an adult account, you will need to just make sure that he or she is not a member of the safety of your family to check on the Family Safety website. To remove a child, go to manage the list of the members of the family. Select the account you want to delete by checking the box on the right, click on remove, then confirm by clicking on remove again.

    In case you have problems after deleting the account as a child, please update the personal data of the account by connecting to

    Note: If you are currently logged in using your account, you must open a session and re-enter your child's account.

    Thank you.

  • Microphone does not work under Windows XP Home - P100

    Hi all

    I am a new user of French a P100-473 series and games. I have it downgrade to Windows XP Home edition for the goal of the game.

    I use conexant high definition driver v 3.11 and its working fine but not the microphone plug on the front of the laptop. I tried all the driver conexant Web 3.12 3.14 and after and the problem is reversed, the microphone does not work very well "using the audio msn Configurator" but I have no sound.

    The driver is working properly, no error, but not sound under windows. Does anyone have a solution for me?
    I have worked on this for 1 week and I really want to resolve the thing, because the cell phone is a great product and on vista, it works like a 486.
    Thank you very much



    On the Toshiba download page there is unfortunately no driver audio Windows XP Home edition for this laptop preinstalled Vista. Read some other assignments that I found the same reports sound works but mic cannot be used.

    Sorry, but it is clear at the moment, there is no solution to this stupid attachment problem. :(

    Just one last thing: try to install your own Vista without Toshiba has designed tools and utilities and let me know how your P100. ;)

  • Webcam does not work for Windows 8. Help, please.


    I use the webcam on my laptop a bit, but recently, it has been in place. He decides little when he wanted to work. However, last week it stopped altogether. I went into Device Manager to try to understand what could be the issue but my phone shows No imaging devices!

    My phone is a Samsung NP350EC A0CDX.

    Can someone help me please get my webcam working again, because it is very important, and I can't afford to buy one that will clip on my laptop as a substitute.

    Most often when a device does not work, it is because the driver is damaged. Re-install a new copy should help ' t-work correctly? SignedIn = 1
