If you know for fact that the CD key number is good call them and they will give you good numbers again. I have had to call them more then once and never had a problem, but I new the number I had was good and not a boot leg number or CD

Thats right you did and I know it's a good CD key number. I had it running here on this computer until I got the XP PRo. I had to call them on that one too once. So, Call them and they will take care of the rest over the phone.

They will give you like 40 numbers you have to type in while your on the phone with them. It's pain in the A**, but it will work
