    Sounds like the activation file might be corrupt. What happens if you try & activate over the net again?

    Get this file & put it on the desktop for now>
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\wpa.dbl
    Then try activating again. You better keep clear in mind what is going because microsoft might start rejecting the activation. Then you will have to ring & explain.

    You should maybe activate by phone and talk to a real person there at MicroSquish. Tell them what is happening... Maybe (more than likely) they've encountered this before and will tell you what's wrong and how to fix it.
