Error 0x8007232B on activating Vista

Asked By 1230 points N/A Posted on -


I am using Windows Vista Business Edition.

When  my computer was re formatted yesterday and re installed a license copy of windows vista business edition, when I am about to activate its copy via the Internet, an error occurred while on the process, it said something about DNS.

Error Details

The following information was found for this error:




DNS name does not exist.

As I understand on the error, it cannot connect to the activation server of Microsoft, so I checked on my Internet connection.

Its running since I can browse the internet. I also ask ED, the service provider.

They told me they have nothing to do with it, since it a local computer issue. Please help me activate my copy of Windows Vista.

Any other way?

Thanks a lot.
