Hi, Group.
I am having some issues with the server I have PP7 Server installed on. I can spend hours searching for the issue and hours more fixing, or I can simply reinstall the OS and start from scratch. Nothing but PP7 is running on the server.
My question is, can I use the same activation codes I received originally, or do I need to go through the full activation process? Nothing is going to change hardware or software wise.

Hi John,
Typically, if nothing changes then the magic number should remain the same therefore, the same activation code can be used.

However, in some instance, re-installing the OS can cause the magic number to change, therefore requiring a new activation code. If this is the case you can contact our activation department for a new activation code at

The Activation Department for North America is opened from Monday to Friday from 9:00am to 5:00pm Eastern Time. If you require an activation code oustide these hours, you can login the Web Activaton Manager and submit a re-activation request for your serial number. You will be receiving a 7 day temporary code, giving you time to contact our Activation Departement to extend this period.

Hope this answers your question!
