Issue: How to fix Windows 10 activation error code 0xC004F034?

I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, but I get an error code 0xC004F034 when I try to activate. I can’t see an option to phone in for activation. Could you please help?

Solved Answer

The Error Code 0xC004F034 is a Windows 10 activation[1] bug. It occurs when the PC’s owner upgrades the system from older Windows versions (Windows 7, 8, 8.1) to Windows 10 and navigates to the Settings -> Update & Security -> Activation -> Activate.

Windows 10 activation error code 0xC004F034 is not a critical system error that does affect the ability to install or activate the OS. This is the system vulnerability that occurred on the first week of this particular update because of the overloaded server due to the huge number of downloads. 

The Windows 10 activation process fails with an error code 0xC004F034 and the PC’s owner is restricted from a part of Windows 10 features[2] and cannot sign into Windows account. The mentioned error code usually means that the user entered the wrong license key. However, Microsoft admitted that the problem is more often at Microsoft’s server’s end, which may get too overloaded after the release of updates and other Microsoft support products.

Therefore, if you cannot activate Windows due to the 0xC004F034 error, we would recommend postponing the activation for at least a couple of hours or the whole day. If you need to activate right now, we’ll provide a couple of alternative methods that you can try for activation.
