My windows 10 key shows as invalid after running licensingdiag.exe

Roshan Jimmy 1 Reputation point

So im gonna come out and say it....

i used a pirated key to activate my windows in the beginning.

It does not work now. I am trying to get one of those cheap keys to activate it now.
This website called is selling for a windows10 key for a low price of 285 Rupees.
I just wanted to know if these companies are legit?

They state that they bought the windows keys as bulk from a windows 10 distributor and they are only selling the digital keys and not a physical copy so thats why they have bigger margins.

So i just want to know first, are these companies legit?


since i activated it with an invalid license, it shows on the comand prompt licensingdiag.exe in the specialdiagreport that it is an invalid license.

i wanted to know if there is a chance to make a change to this? will i be able to make a change and start a new? and i mean actually activate windows? or


am i stuck

with this?

Thanking you in advance

    Hi there,

    In the below link you can find the authorized Microsoft licensing distributors in India
    Yes, some websites claim that they are Volume licensing but we cannot find out the true nature of the history. It is always advised to get the key from authorized resellers. And once you get the Key you can clean install the PC and activate it with your digital license to remove the message in CMD or just select change the Key option and activate the PC.

    Hope this answers all your queries, if not please do repost back.
