This appears to be an indicator that your copy of Windows is no longer activated. It seems like it's not uncommon:http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w8itprogeneral/thread/2b14b88f-11e9-4861-8a63-b941cca4ca9f/
It sounds like when you install the WMC add-on they issue a new key, and you have to reactivate.
Yet another wonderful "feature" of Windows 8 I suppose...
Exceedingly wonderful feature in my case.
When I attempted to have it activated on-line, "This CD Key is already used for another computer . . ." is returned. Phone activation took care of it. But it was a pain providing looong ID and typing in looong activation code.
I am wondering what if I have to reinstall W8. The setup DVD is not for Windows 8 Pro with Windows Media Center. Can I still use the new CD Key. If not, is the old CD Key still valid? Anyone who did the re-install?
