Windows 8.1 got deactivated after i used my real Windows 8.0 key from 2012

you’re making excuses, please just activate 8.1. Get a prepaid SIM, if you must. Or get a mic (or use a laptop that has a mic built in… or a smartphone) and use skype and just activate it


#42

Or alternatively, crack 7. also no fair, you vote in your own poll

Skype is the worst messaging client. You have to see this review of a unhappy skype user.

You want me to get “Win Free iPhone X” and “Adult Dating” on my desktop and some BS indian scam anti-“virus”?

I was able to replicate what happend with my pc, this time with a Windows 10 RTM virtual machine. I installed Windows 10 without internet, i was able to change the wallpaper. then i waited and i enabled internet, i was no longer able to change the wallpaper because it said ‘Activate Windows’.


#44

Oh I thought you didn’t want to use it because:

:smirk:

At least be consistent with your excuses lol


#45

if you dont know the difference between a activator and a virus, sure, windows loader never gave me any poblems


#46

Remember earlier this month that Skype killed it’s decent versions? If i wanted to install Skype, it should have been Skype 7 or even Skype 6.


#47

SKYPE 7 STILL WORKS FOR ME :smiley:


#48

Not for a while, Skype 7 ended support on January 8 and in the near-future or even soon every remaining Skype 7 will be forced to migrate to Skype 8.


#49

In this case, that’s no excuse. If it performs a function you need to use, then your better off sucking it up than blatantly refusing the options given to you.

Also don’t select Skype 7 builds still log in? :confused:

Accoroding to @MSN-messengeris-cool, the anwser is yeah.

I’ve tried using the windows 10 creator tool and…

Yes the pool might be rigged but the skype option was meant to be a joke, so… i’m going to upgrade to Windows 10. the good news is i founded this, on the microsoft support forums.


#51

Actually, the poll says to downgrade to Windows 7 and crack it


#52

says the guy who choosed and asked the skype option. xd


#53

says the guy who offers these 2 options on his poll


#54

because i wanted to see if someone was me and had a unactivated of 8.1, what he would do?


#55

Seriously though - you made this topic into a really long one by ignoring all options given to you both by the MS support forums and here/finding excuses for any and all options


#56

MS support forums were all about clean installing windows 8.1. This post was just “Skype is shit” disguised into “Windows 8.1 is not activated”

i fell like i’m just treated like leo.


#57

everyone’s time could have been saved if you told us that from the start instead of making it into a long topic


#58

also, what next? is it secretly “all landlines, phone plans and prepaid SIMs are shit” and “Support forums suck” too?


#59

no, it’s gonna be “all copies of Windows 8.1 suck”


#60

And then it’s gonna be “Any versions of Windows other than 10 suck”
