Including asking for more activations from whoever it is necessary. I recently (last month) ran out of activations on my red alert 3 key and was given more within a few hours after asking via email. I have heard of a few people running out but then receiving more. Just wondering if anyone has experienced a real lockout from this (not an internet sob story where you don't have the whole picture).
Myself, Windows XP. When I phoned Microsoft they said they were unable to provide more activations as a result of receiving legal advice not to. After 2 1/2 weeks of back and forth eventually my XP serial key was given unlimited activations.
