This error usually occurs when you are trying to install wrong key to activate your Windows.

Depending on your OS, find out the product key for the KMS Client Setup. The product keys can be found here.

Now, start Command Prompt with administrative privilege, run the following command:

slmgr /ipk YC6KT-GKW9T-YTKYR-T4X34-R7VHC

This will give success message that the product key is installed successfully.

Now, you have to point your operating system to the KMS server. To do so, run the following command:

slmgr /skms

Here, replace the “” with FQDN of your KMS server.

Otherwise, the following command might also work the same task:

slmgr /ato

Your tension should have gone.
