    I work on a Mac. Recently (for online business purposes) I purchased Parallels in order to download Windows 7 Home Premium. This is where my problems started. I am a South African working in Korea. I could not download Windows 7 because I was told that my purchase would not be valid for that region. Ok, so I visited SA during my vacation and purchased Windows 7 and activated it. Now I am back in Korea (working on parallels desktop) and suddenly my installed and activated Windows program tells me that my activated key is not valid outside the region it was purchased and activated. Now what? I have paid a lot of money for this damn software and now I cannot use it???

    Is there any advice out there for me??? Thanks

    Try the Phone Activation:

    1. Click Start, and in the Search box type: slui.exe 4
    2. Press ENTER on your Keyboard
    3. Select your Country.
    4. Take the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person.
