Windows 10 activation problem error code : 0xC004F074


If you had a KMS activated version of Windows 8, Windows 8.1 or Windows 7 before and you upgraded to Windows 10 then you may face the problem. You may have installed Windows 10 few months ago but after the recent up-gradation of January 2016, you may face this error code 0xC004F074 with this message"Windows is unable to reach your company’s activation service." Don't worry. There are some solutions to this problem. Hope you will find it useful.

Windows is unable to reach your company’s activation service:

I had installed Windows 10 few months ago after the immediate release of Windows 10 and I faced this error message while my Windows 10 computer upgraded automatically on Jan 06 2016. I got exactly the same message. You can better take a look...

Windows is unable to reach your company’s activation service. Please connect to your corporate network. If you are connected and continue to see the error, contact your system administrator. You can also click on error detail to find the exact error. Error code: 0xC004F074


There are two methods to fix this problem as far as I know.

Method One:

This method will work if you already have an activation key or KMSpico Key. You need to uninstall the existing key before applying the new one. Open command prompt in admin mode  and execute: (slmgr.vbs /dlv) without bracket before uninstalling the existing key.
You will find following description, note the description:

Description: Windows(R) Operating System, VOLUME_KMS_WS12_R2 channel

Next: Apply:  slmgr.vbs /upk to uninstall the existing KMS key:

uninstall-previous-windows-10-activation-key


With the old key uninstalled, apply the following:

slmgr.vbs /ipk <NewKMSProductKey>

Install-new-key-for-windows-activation


Now go to PC Settings >Update and Security > Activation.

And you will find your windows 10 activated.

Method Two:

This one is the easiest method I think. Probably you are familiar with torrent websites. If so then look for any torrent website( Top 10 Popular torrent sites) and find any updated KMSpico software.

You will need a torrent client installed in your Desktop computer or laptop. If you don't have any then you may download utorrent, Vuze Bittorrent Client or any other torrent client. Install and run the software and download the torrent file.

Steps:
  • Turn off Windows Defender for a while.
  • Download the KMSpico software.
  • Unzip the RAR file.
  • Look for "KMSpico Install" folder
  • Run the .exe file.
  • Complete the installation process.
  • Open KMSpico from start menu.
  • Hit the red "Push" Button.
  • Activation process will start shortly and complete within 15 seconds.
  • All done.
Windows 10 is activated now.
You can now Turn on Windows Defender.
Now go to Settings >Update and Security > Activation.

And you will find your windows 10 activated.

  14. Hello Vini,
    You should activate your windows at first. Or if you follow 2nd method it will activate your windows automatically.
