    I think, but not 100% sure, but one live email or hotmail is associated with one windows 8 product key, whether it's 32 bit or 64 bit.

    bassfisher I think you are right. When I tried my Gmail account it wouldn't accept it. It did however accept my old Hotmail account.

    i believe it has to be a Microsoft account,thats why it wont accept gmail(google).again what would be the point of sync settings if you can only use one Hotmail or msn account for one windows 8 key?it doesn't make sense and I don't believe this is the case.

    You are correct, it has nothing to do with the gmail account. of you are receiving that error, it is probably because you removed the antivirus software (norton in my case) and it removed a couple regkeys with it. I put the regkeys back and that solved it. You can find the details on the microsoft support site and search for this error. It will be at the end of a thread, you will have to look around.
