I'm having problem on activating my Windows 10 Pro on my PC.Previously I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my PC and decided to upgrade to Windows 10. I bought an OEM Windows 10 Pro in play-asia.com and immediately I received the key. I used the media creation tool to download and create bootable usb drive for it. I choose to create ISO first as Scan Disk USB Drive is not supported for whatever reason so what I did was I used Rufus to create bootable USB using the ISO I downloaded. I manage to install windows 10 on my PC but when I try to activate it always says that my key is not valid. I would like to ask if clean install means everything is that to delete including the partition I made before. When I was in windows 7 I do have 2 partition for my drive and I only deleted the partition where my windows 7 was installed and keep my other partition for backup.

The problem is that you bought an OEM or volume license key at a retail location via digital download, and it is not legitimate. This is why it will not activate.

At the moment there are a limited number of sites where you can legally purchase digital downloads of Microsoft software.

With the exception of Product Key Cards (PKC’s) distributed with COA’s, Microsoft does not distribute products keys as standalone products. If you see a listing on an auction site, online classified ad, or other online page advertising product keys for sale, it’s a good indication that the keys are likely stolen or counterfeit.

seems the volume license for the win10 you downloaded has probably been exhausted

you should contact support with your claim; https://www.play-asia.com/info/helprefund

clean install should not require you remove existing hard disk partitions, only that you install the files to a partition that is 'clean'.

I get the error 'The serial number is not valid for this product' when installing Creative Suite

Complete the following steps if you enter the serial number for your Creative Suite or stand-alone Adobe product and get the error message “This serial number is not valid for this product.'

Windows 10 Serial Key Invalid Codes

Solution 1: Check your installer and reenter the serial number

Make sure you are using the correct installer for your product and platform.

  • Always use the suite installer, not an installer for a single product, unless you have Acrobat 9, Adobe Premiere Pro CS4 (32 bit), or After Effects CS4 (32 bit). These products require a separate serial number and media. You cannot install these products with the Creative Suite serial number and media.
  • The Creative Suite serial number does not work with an individual product installer. To install only some Creative Suite products, choose Custom Install in the Creative Suite installer, and then select the products you want to install.
  • The installer is platform-specific. The serial number for Windows does not work for Mac OS.

Make sure that the number you enter is the serial number.

  • Serial numbers are 24-character numeric strings. Do not enter alphabetic characters. For help, see Find your serial number.
  • Ignore the hyphens when you enter the serial number.
  • If you have a volume serial number, use the installer that is either downloaded from the Adobe licensing website or obtained from the original DVD accompanying the product.

If your serial number is for a different language than the installation language you select (for example, you purchased a German Creative Suite, but attempt to install it in English), you will get an invalid serial number error. Reinstall the product, choose the correct language, and enter the serial number when prompted.

Note:

The following language-specific software installs two language packs. You can install in one language and enter the serial number from the other without getting an invalid serial number error.

  • en_US (Universal English)en_GB (International English)
  • fr_FR (French)fr_CA (French Canadian)
  • es_ES (Spanish)es_MX (Latin American Spanish)

Solution 2: Delete the activation database files

Activation database files that are corrupted or have incorrect file permissions can prevent your product from installing correctly.

  1. Delete the Adobe PCD folder and caps.db file from the following locations:

    Windows:

    • Program FilesCommon FilesAdobeAdobe PCD
    • Program FilesCommon FilesAdobecapscaps.db

    Mac OS:

    • /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe PCD
    • /Library/Application Support/Adobe/caps/caps.db
  2. Restart your Adobe application. Enter the serial number when prompted.

    If you are not prompted to enter a serial number or the application won't open, uninstall and reinstall the application.

  3. Uninstall the application, if necessary. For Creative Suite applications, uninstall the entire Creative Suite, not just a single application.

    Note:

    If you are having problems with a stand-alone version of Lightroom, you must uninstall several files manually, after running the uninstaller. For instructions, see Uninstall Lightroom manually.

  4. Reinstall the applications, using the Creative Suite installer and serial number.

    Note:

    You can download the product directly from the Other downloads page on adobe.com, and then reinstall.

Solution 3: Run the CC Cleaner Tool and reinstall

The Creative Cloud (CC) Cleaner Tool can remove installation files for Creative Suite applications that are corrupted or that are causing problems with a new installation.

Note:

The Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool is designed to run after you uninstall your Adobe application. Run the appropriate uninstaller to remove the application producing the invalid serial number error first, and then run the CC Cleaner Tool.

    For detailed instructions on how to run the CC Cleaner Tool, see Use the Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to solve installation problems.

    Check the system requirements before downloading and installing the product.

Invalid Product Key Windows 7

  1. In the serial number dialog box, delete the serial number and select I Want To Try. Then click Next.

  2. In the Software Setup dialog box, select I have a serial number and want to license this product.

Solution 5. Create a new user account and reinstall the product

Windows 10 Product Key Invalid

Occasionally, a user account can become corrupted and prevent the Adobe installer from accessing or creating the necessary files and folders. Create a different account, log in to the new account, and then try to reinstall the Adobe application.
