Replacing the Product Key in Windows2003

By jfox ·
How do you replace the Product Key in Windows 2003 Server. An old employee used a bad code to install the server and now we can not use Windows Update to update the product. We have a new code but don't know how to replace the bad code.

Hi

Have you rung Microsoft and asked them for assistance?

Good luck

Try using this article

It is titled for XP SP1 but it will work for 2003 as well.

Be sure to review the entire article before implementation.

This did the trick. The last Microsoft article I saw only fixed XP and said the fix did not work on 2003. This article did list 2003 and it did fix the problem.
