I am trying out different operating systems and I thought I would give the 64 bit Win7 version a spin on my work laptop. I have always been a bit annoyed with the 32 bit XP that I lose 600 MB of memory due to the 3,4 GB limit of 32 bit operating systems.
Win7 64 bit seems to work fine so far. But a couple of days into running it it started nagging me about activation and every time I tried to activate I got the error:
Code 0x8007232B – DNS name does not exist.
After some searching I found out the fix. Apparently there is a bug that has been around since the Vista days and it is still not fixed. Here is the solution:
Right click My computer, Properties.
Choose "Change product key" and enter your key once more (same as when installing). It will start to activate and 60 seconds later it works!
So far everything else seems to work fine. Only Daemon Tools lite does not work at all with 64 bit win7.
