SOLVED! Windows Anytime Upgrade Key Doesn’t Work

June 5th, 2013 admin

Here’s a nice simple, yet frustrating one!   If you go through the Windows Anytime Upgrade site, make a purchase, get a key (so far so good) and then the key doesn’t work?!

You just get the error “Enter a different key”  and then  “The upgrade key you entered is for an edition of Windows that does not work with Windows Anytime Upgrade”



The fix?  Simple, reboot and the upgrade will continue automatically!

    Microsoft Product keys are sensitive case, Because Microsoft provide it for only one system at the same time, I was need the windows 7 key for my laptop to upgrade from home premium to professional, So I contact to Microsoft but they denied to give me a key, So I searched all over the world to purchase it.

    Recently, I ordered at a site from India, They provided me 3 windows 7 pro key sticker and 2 windows 8.1 pro keys, Which is legal and working good. I’m happy after getting so cheap license.

    You can also get an unused Windows 7(any version)8, 8.1 pro License key from: ODosta Store

    I want to buy another, But Now Please tell me, If can I use my windows 8.1 professional product key at my existing windows 8.1 standard KMS Activated License, being upgrade it.

    I want to thank {emma} here, she has won my business and I’ll be posting my experience to you and others.

    My old computer crashed days ago. I had to buy a new computer. It costed me much.

    My budget was not much. To purchase a windows 8.1 product key from MS was not enough. Then I went to Tomshardware, and one guy recommended to me. Their price did attract me. So I decided to try after several emails to {name}. She was very patient and answered clearly to all my questions. I receved the key immediately after I sent {price} bucks. It worked perfectly. I was very very satisfied.

    I’ll be buying from from now on as well.

    Go the online store You even don’t need to spend a lot of time but only need to place the order and finish the payment in several minutes. The product key will be sent to you via email in short time. Very efficient!

    I have helped people “who cannot afford” computing, refurbish old systems donated by schools and has really enabled me to give these people good software that would normally be out of their reach ( I don’t charge for my service,) just thought I would pass the word on

    My computer arrived at yesterday. I needed a genuine Windows 10 Education Product Key at a great price. made it happen!
    However, I was quite skeptical at them since their price seemed too good to trust. So I tried searching for them on google but with little success.
    But I decided to give it a try. I paid with PayPal, and received my key in 20mins!!! I tried the key and it worked!
    They exhibited sooooo quick customer service. They are a certified Microsoft partner and a great source for Microsoft, Adobe, Rosetta Stone and other products. Waste no time looking elsewhere.
