  1. Hi

    Thanks for putting up the information. Unfortunately it doesn't work. I have a consumer version and 3 weeks ago Microsoft - without warning - started demanding I buy a licence and every hour since the computer has locked up and I have had to crash out. I tried for 3 weeks to buy a licenece but because I was away in the Caribbean (working I hasten to add) I just couldn;t..

    Anyway, I bought a licence today and have tried entering the key BUT it won;t recognize it...

    Best Regards
