ESU license activation issue

Nilimesh Halder 1 Reputation point

We are trying to activate Windows 7 ESU licence but post successful activation it is showing Unlicensed .

In only one system it is showing Licensed.

Could you please help on this.

    You appear to have successfully activated the ESU key. However, the key still does not seem to be properly licensed.

    What the possible cause is the slmgr /ato command did not correctly pass the ESU activation ID.

    To use the activation ID, run the following command:

    slmgr /ato <Activation ID>

    In this command, <Activation ID> represents the activation ID of the ESU key.

    Hope above information can help you.
