Hi all,

I have a client with Win10 Enterprise that gets their Windows licensing via their Intune subscription.  I got the MAK key from the Intune portal.

However, when I click to activate and then click Change Product Key, nothing happens in the gui whatsoever.

If I go slmgr/ipk from command line, I get Windows Script Host Error: 0x80070057 The parameter is incorrect

Not very helpful.

Anyone seen this before?  We always use KMS so this MAK stuff is new to me, although I've never had any trouble with MAK on-offs on win8 or win7 in the past...

I've had to use DISM on occasions as well as slmgr

Command I've used worked out on Servers, as follows:
DISM /online /Set-Edition:ServerDataCenter /ProductKey:xxxxx-yyyyyy-eeeeee-tttttt-ddddd-wwwww


So Windows Client...(this worked for me)
DISM.exe /online /Get-CurrentEdition

DISM.exe /online /Get-TargetEditions

Then fill in the edition you want.

So turns out despite the error I guess the key is actually sticking... Following a reboot the machine is activated...

Can't tell you how many times in the past few months that I've seen that with either Azure cmdlets or Win 10 stuff, now that you mention it, Wes.  I guess I'll have to dust off what used to be a standard troubleshooting technique. [smile]
