Reboot normally, and when the Windows activation screen pops up like before this repair, you'll have the activation numbers showing and the phone support will now work. Sorry to be so dumb. No activation window, only a message about lack of synchronisation and nothing else. Edit: It is way beyond its end-of-life so I would stay away from it too. There are other products that can also find the keys on a computer, but that's beyond the scope of this Topic.
