  • Hi Tyler,

    This error indicates the you are using the incorrect PID for the installer you chose.

    "As the screen shot from the link shows, the Customer is using a “Retail” product key on an Evaluation instance of the install."

    Please get the key and the download from the same source.

    Sincerely,

  • Hi Tyler,

    It is no longer called DreamSpark, now it is called Microsoft Imagine.

    You can access imagine through this address: https://imagine.microsoft.com/en-us/catalog

    They seem to have pulled out a whole lot of older versions of software so I'm not sure if they still provide Windows Embedded Compact 2013 for free, especially now since MS is pushing Windows 10 IOT to new developers, you might be out of luck.

  • Hi Tyler,

    The key provided should match the installer also available through Dreamspark.  As suggested by Tom, please reach out to them for details on where to get the matching download.

    Sincerely,
