my guess is that the problem is either in the auto-activation portion of the script or the wmi programming in the slmgrd.log file. because it appears to work in windows vista, i'll move it to that machine and just run it manually to see what's going on.
i'm currently referencing a vmware virtual machine running windowsxp pro sp3, and i have no idea what the properties for windows7 are. my goal is to get to the point where i have a working installation of windows7
when i run slmgr /v /dlv from the windowsxp virtual machine, i can get slmgr to print out the error that i'm seeing on the other machine. the problem is that i can't seem to get it to tell me what's wrong or to provide me with a workaround.
if i open up a command prompt and run slmgr /v and then hit enter, it'll get the inventory and status info i need, but i can't find a command that will provide me with the information that i'm looking for.
i'm not entirely sure what the command would be for my scenario, but i'd like to know what the error is, and if there's a way to get slmgr to spit out the information i'm looking for. i have another server that has an iso of windows server 2008 r2 available, and i could attempt to deploy that instead of running the virtual machine, but i don't know if that would help or not. perhaps there's an easier way to do this?
i finally got around to putting an slb into the system as well. when i ran the slmgr /v /dlv command, i got an error that said that it was not licensed for the os and that it would attempt to fix the problem later. i would really like to get this working, but i'm not getting any information on how to try and correct the issue or how to get to a position where i can actually put an slb into the machine. 3d9ccd7d82
