I have the product key number I purchased through the Express upgrade. Is there a link for the download of Windows 7 professional free?

I bought Windows 7 Professional upgrade through Express during which I contain the product key number... It seems to me not to be able to communicate with them? I need to re - install windows 7 and need a download for professional during which I contain the number of product for a 64-bit key.

You cannot use a Windows 7 Professional anytime upgrade product key with reinstall media, it can be used only to upgrade license of qualification basis where you bought the upgrade in the first place (Starter, Home Premium).

The first thing you need to do is to get your key to Windows 7 Professional upgrade Express:
An e-mail containing your product key will be sent to the e-mail address associated with your Windows Live ID account or e-mail address you provided if you ignored the account configuration. Note: If you use an email tool or spam blocker spam filter, be sure that you can receive e-mail messages from microsoft.com.
What happens if I lose my product key?
If you lose your product key, you can return to

www.Windows7.com/GetKey and sign in using the "Sign In" link in the upper right of the page. This will allow to recover your product key if you have established your account with your Windows Live ID. If you do not configure a Windows Live ID account initially there is no record of your online product key. Check your e-mail since it is the only trace of your product key.

Here are four utilities, which can display your product keys if they are still there:
Belarc Advisor: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html
(He did a good job of providing a wealth of information.)
Also: http://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder.shtml
and: http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/product_cd_key_viewer.html
and RockXP: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4138.html which has additional features.
The next thing you need to do is to ensure that your data is backed up:
The next thing you need to do is to reinstall the base license that you upgraded, Windows 7 Starter Edition or Home Premium.
If your computer is pre-installed with Windows 7:

New computers that come pre-installed with Windows often have what is called a recovery partition. This is used to reinstall an operating system in the case of a system failure. To access it, you need to start when you start your computer by pressing a function key. This can be either F1, F2, F9, F10, F11, F12 key DEL or tab. See the manual that came with your PC for instructions on how to reinstall Windows.

If your recovery partition is not available or damaged, you must contact the manufacturer of your computer, and request that a defined recovery disk you can use to reinstall Windows 7. They could practice a small shipping and handling.
This is how the recovery partition is accessible to most popular brands...
For Dell, press F8 on the keyboard until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears on the screen.
For HP, press F11 directly after switching on the device
For LG, press F11 directly after switching on the device
For Toshiba, press and hold "0" BEFORE and during the power upward
For Acer, press and hold ALT + F10, as soon as you see the logo
For Asus, press F9, as soon as you see the Asus logo.
For Samsung, press F4 to the power upward...
For Fujitsu, press the F8 key directly after the power
Advent, restart your computer. Then, press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting system recovery"
Sony VAIO, reboot and press "F8" or "F10" repeatedly until the screen "Advanced Boot Options".

If it was a store bought retail license:
After you have reinstalled your original license, make sure that it is enabled before doing the upgrade to Windows 7 Professional:
How to activate Windows 7 manually (activate by phone)
1) click Start and in the search for box type: slui.exe 4
(2) press the ENTER"" key.
(3) select your "country" in the list.
(4) choose the option "activate phone".
(5) stay on the phone (do not select/press all options) and wait for a person to help you with the activation.
(6) explain your problem clearly to the support person.

Redo the Express Upgrade:
Click Start, type Anytime Upgrade, click on the option enter a key, enter the key of Windows 7 Professional on demand, click Next, wait while checking the key, accept the license agreement, click on upgrade, wait while the software upgrades, (it may take 10 minutes or more depending on the if updates are required) your computer restarts automatically, after the reboot, Windows 7 will notify you updating the computer, the computer will restart once more automatically and will be completed the upgrade, a window will appear notifying the upgrade was successful and your computer is ready to use, click Close, you should be upgraded to Windows 7 Professional your files, programs and settings retained.
Go to reactivate the license again.

    I have a PC Emachine that I bought with Windows XP Home Edition loaded on it, hard drive went bad and had to be replaced, I don't have a CD to reload my Windows, still have the product key sticker on the PC to save it. Is there a way I can download it? I have XP Pro on another PC, thought I could load and use the product key for my original PC, but who doesn't. Any ideas on what I can do

    Borrow an OEM Windows CD (it must be OEM) and install it using your product key. (You can make a copy of it for your future use - this isn't the CD you pay because it's the product key). A generic OEM CD maybe not some or all the drivers you need you would be safe to download from the website of the provider first.

    [Moved from Community Participation]

    If the product key provided with your computer (on a sticker, for example), then you will need to contact the company who made the computer to ask for a replacement.

    If you have purchased the product in a store key (for example www.microsoftstore.com or Wal-Mart, etc) then you will need to contact the store.

    When you bought the computer, he had the pre-installed Windows 7?
    If so, this is a version of OEM license.
    Not worth trying all of 3rd party product key finders. They do not work on the OEM version.

    You call the computer manufacturer and ask what follows...

    1. a set of recovery disks. Its cost is minimal and money well spent. The game will save your computer if it crashes.
    2. talking to a technician and ask for instructions access your recovery as well as partition to use it to restore your computer.

    The 2 methods above does not need to enter the product key.

    Note: The methods above will restore your computer to factory State. You will lose all your personal files and programs you had installed. If you still have ways to support those up to a flash drive or an external hard drive, do so now.

  • Virus on my computer. Windows Vista has been altered by the virus and my computer does not have a product key

    My computer caught a SERIOUS virus that damaged my beta Windows Vista together. So I've upgraded to Windows 7, however, I have not the key product for Windows Vista or 7. Is it possible to set this up with Windows Vista or 7 because my product key for computers, which was at the back of it, has been erased or worn. There is no name on the back of my laptop sticker saying what product key to use. Thank you!

    What virus? How did you know you had it? You run an anti-virus

    So I had to upgrade to Windows 7,

    Ugh! The upgrade to a different version of Windows does not remove a virus. In

    thing to do and will be much more likely to make the problem worse than in

    However, I have not the key product for Windows Vista or 7.

    Where have you upgraded to Windows 7? Upgrade to a
    legitimate version Windows7 is a bad thing, but if you went to one
    a pirated version, it is likely to cause additional problems and you
    are probably in trouble now and need to clean install a
    copy legitimate of some versions of Windows.

    The product key on the back of your laptop is for what version of
    Windows it came with and may not be used for all other versions. If you
    don't have a product key for Vista or Windows 7, the laptop
    no doubt supplied with XP. Is this correct?

    If it came with XP, it is very old and it is almost certainly elsewhere
    low power for Windows 7. In addition the drivers you need for Windows
    7 there are almost certainly not, and you will not be able to run
    Windows 7 on it.

    At this point, you are probably in trouble no matter what you do. You
    must reinstall Windows XP itself, but you no longer have your
    product key and you probably haven't a Windows XP CD no more. You
    can try to ask the manufacturer of the laptop to a XP CD and product
    key, but I doubt if you can get at this late date.

    You can buy a copy of Windows 7, but once, you are likely in a way
    low power for the drivers you need and it will be unavailable.

  • I have no product key for my windows vista... I need help... pleaze!

    I have no product key for my windows vista... I need help... pleaze!

    If Windows Vista is already installed on your system and your system still works (even if only in safe mode) so you can be lucky.  There is a product called Belarc Advisor: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html which can be installed on your system and can retrieve the product key in the system files (only Vista does not provide this feature).

    If you can not enter your system, it has already been formatted or something like that, there is very little that can be done.  There is no place that keeps a record of the product keys related to individuals (or computers) that can be checked and Microsoft will not give without proof of purchase product keys (which IS the key product - the sales receipt or even the disc itself is not enough).  You can't even borrow a disk from someone else because you need your product key to activate the program.  The only choice is to buy another product (you'll probably need a commercial full version as an upgrade will not work on a non-production system or one where you cannot install a product allowing to level).

    You can TRY to get Microsoft to activate your system without a product key if you have the disk (there are codes on the disc, which mean it is valid or not), but I doubt it will work but may be worth a try.  To activate manually, go to start, search, and type in slui 4 enter.  Enter your country and press Next.  You will be on a screen with a phone number and a bunch of codes below.  Dial the number and browse automatic guests until you get to a human being.  Have your handy product code because it will be asked.  Explain that you have lost your product key, but the disc and it's the same PC.  They can give you a code to enter on this screen to activate Vista (or they have very probably you will say you are out of luck and they can not help you).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck! Lorien - MCSA/MCSE/network + / A +.

  • CS6 with product key number but no serial number

    I bought the Adobe Support CS6 (email address: help and Support <[email protected]>) and got a product key number but no serial number.  How is it?  My purchase is legitimate or do you I you get scammed?

    Here's what you need to know.

    1. these guys are nothing to do with Adobe. They come in Google and look enough like Adobe thing people.

    2. you have let them in your computer. They could have installed anything and left behind, to get your card, personal details and for worse numbers. I'd be very worried.

  • IQ524: find product key number

    I have an IQ524 all-in-one computer, I received the computer with Vista and a few months later I received a package of HP discs for windows 7, in which I installed quickly. I want to install windows 10. I just found out that I can go to Cnet, who sends me to the download site. At first, I couldn't find my product key, the key that I have on my computer is only 20 letters and numbers for a long time. I found the product key number 25 on the back of my computer, but I guess is for the Vista operating system.

    The package of disks for windows 7 OS have no numbers on it what so ever, so I have no idea what product key number and I don't think I've ever had that number. Where can I find or is it possible to get another number product key for windows 7, so I can install Windows 10 on my computer? Now that I think about it, do I need a product key number (for windows 7) I got the number for Vista?

    Thanks in advance...


    From what I understand, the upgrade to Windows 10 does not require that you know the product key for Windows 7.  Until Windows 7 is functional and active, then you are good to upgrade to Windows 10 using the update function M$.

  • I have my product key, but what version I am license for? -Want to re - install

    Hello.  I have a valid 25-character product key for Windows Vista - but do not know what version.
    I want to reinstall a laptop but the license under the laptop sticker is very 'dirty' I can only see the product key of 25 characters and the words "Windows Vista XXXX" but do not know if his home, business or Ultimate.

    Is there a site Web/link that I can put my product key, then they can tell me what version I am licensed?
    P.S. Someone formatted the laptop to test to try Windows 7, it's why I don't know what version I am licensed.

    Kind regards

    There is no website to check.

    This Turorial tells you what to do; Simply type the product key.
    All versions of vista are on the good MS Vista DVD.
    The product key determines what is installed.
    Read the info here to the elder Geek:




    Type your product key in the installation.

    Once more, it's time for the product key and activation talk. Unlike XP and previous offers of Windows that stopped dead if you do not have a product key, it is no longer the case with Vista. You are not required to enter a key at this stage, although there are a few caveats set out on the potential of data loss if you choose not to enter the key. There is also a checkbox to select or not Vista will be automatically activated.
    If you have chosen not to enter the product key in the previous step, this screen will appear asking you to confirm that you do not want to enter the key. The same warning of potential data loss is present and an additional warning was added that you may need to purchase another edition of Vista if you continue without entering the key. Press [Yes] to return to the screen where the key can be entered. Select [No] will take you to the screen below.
    Refusing to enter the product key in the previous step brings you here where you need to select the edition of Windows that you purchased. The warning says clearly that if you select a version, you do not have a key, you must either purchase this version or reinstall Vista and select the appropriate version. This screen is a two-step process; Select the appropriate version and certifying then you have selected the version of Vista by using the checkbox. Once these two items are completed, the [next] button is activated.

    See you soon.

  • Need to activate Vista, but do not have another product key

    Well, I m using window vista Home premium, but I don, t ve produst the other key to activity from my window

    * original title - I want activity my window vista Home premium but I n, t have another product key, so I did that shoul? *

    Hi gulabsher,

    You don't need a different product key for re - activate Vista or it after a re-installation.  The original supplied with the software should do just fine.  However, it is possible that the automated process will not recognize your original valid product key because he thinks that it is already used (and it is from their point of view - on your own computer).

    If the automated process fails, use the manual method to activate Vista using the correct product key which accompanies the software.  Remember, if it's an OEM license, it can only be used on the same computer, on which it was originally installed and if a retail license, it can be installed on any computer capable of managing this version of Vista, but only on one computer at a time.

    To activate manually, go to start, search, and type in slui 4 enter.  Enter your country
    and click Next.  You will be on a screen with a phone number and a bunch of codes below.  Dial the number and browse automatic guests until you get to a human being.  Have your handy product code because it will be asked.  Explain the situation and it is only installed on this PC.  They should give you a code to enter on this screen to activate Vista (or explain why there is a problem if they do not).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!
