I can't activate my Windows 10 Pro

Copper Contributor

I can’t activate Windows because of error 0x8007232B. I have already tried using the troubleshooters, the slmgr -ipk command and temporarily disable antivirus and firewall. When I enter the key, it says "Windows cannot be activated on this device because we cannot connect to your company's activation server". What should I do.

It seems you're trying to activate volume license. If that's the case, you need to contact your IT admin to resolve this issue.

If this is your personal device, you need to install retail or OEM license.

where did you get the product key?

Hello, I bought a computer from another person and he already had activated Windows.

You need to get a new license to activate the laptop. Did you reinstall Windows 10 after receiving the laptop?
Yea, i did

Hello, can you tell me a little more in detail.

You have to find the license key you are using. After that, deactivate on the old device and re-activate on the new device. That's!
You need to buy new license from official Microsoft Store or authorized reseller.
