Change Windows 2012 server Microsoft product activation key

Windows 2012 R2 server doesn’t allow me to change the product activation key through GUI and used PowerShell commands to clear and insert new key.

Step 1: Clear the existing key, if present.

  • Type “Powershell ” on Window start menu and open. Use the below command to clear the existing product key.

    slmgr –upk

Step 2: Enter the new Key (2 methods are available)

  • GUI

    Type “slui” on Window start menu and open Slui.exe. Then enter the Windows product key and Click “Activate”.

  • PowerShell

slmgr -ipk XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX (X is the Window product key)
