Issue when trying to test in a VM

    Question

  • Hi

     

    I am trying to build a VM with the ISO but I get an error

     

    " WIndows can not read the <Product Key) setting from the unattended answer file"

     

    Any ideas what can be done about this?

    Thanks

    Yes, I  had no problems by inserting any Ultimate Windows 7 key. you only need a key to install.  then later I had to click Activate

    since the key used was not the proper activation key .... M$ did Activate.
