Activation Server for EMC 7 won't activate



:( After reinstalling EMC 7 on a new drive I opened the program and it wants me to "Activate It". When I try to activate it I get an ERROR Message ( The Activation Server reports that the Distribution Key has been Disabled)

Do I need to activate EMC 7 before I can install update EMC 7.5 and put in the CD Key for it? :glare:

"The Activation Server Refused the CD Key error message after downloading and

installing Easy Media Creator 7


This issue is mainly caused by an incorrect character being entered in the CD Key.

Most commonly, you will need to replace a letter "O" with a number "0" or replace a

letter "I" with the number "1".



a. Click on Start, then on "Run" and then type in "regedit", click on "OK".

b. Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" key (looks like a folder) by double-clicking it (or clicking the "+" next to it).

c. Expand the "SOFTWARE" key.

d. Expand the "Roxio" key.

e. Highlight the "Creator 7" key by left-clicking on it once.

f. On the right side, double-click the value called "cdkey".

g. Delete the values that are already there and re-enter your cdkey all LOWER CASE

and WITH the dashes.

h. Click "OK", close the registry editor by click the "X" in the top right corner.

Now launch a Roxio application and try to activate."
