Windows activation error code 0xC004D302 indicates that the security chip reported that the trusted data store has been reactivated.
Error 0xC004D302 can be very big and each number has its own problem. It takes a thorough investigation to use these “codes” to fix the wrong thing.
There are several possible reasons for this error:
- Changes to standard permissions “C: ProgramDataMicrosoftCryptoRSAMachineKeys”.
- Damage to license files. (Tokens.dat)
- If you ran slmgr.vbs / erectm and tried to run another activation command (such as / dlv or / dli) before restarting, this error occurs. You must restart slmgr.vbs / erectm after using the command before attempting activation.
If you are always missing error code 0xc004d302 on your Windows system, then there could be much more serious problems on your system that will ultimately seriously affect your computer. However, error 0xC004D302 should not be ignored, as the possible result could be a slowdown or complete failure of the computer if left untreated.
