How To Fix Windows 10 Activation Error Code 0xC004E003

Description from Microsoft:

You might see this error after installing third-party software that changed system files. Windows activation needs certain system files to complete activation. You can try to restore the system files back to an earlier point in time. This removes any software you installed after that point in time without affecting your personal files.

After installing Windows you are likely to get a notification asking you to activate windows. Activation differs from the installation process that requires a product code. It is also different from post-installation registration. Instead, the goal of Windows activation is to establish a link between a licensed copy Windows and a specific computer system via your product key. Such a link should prevent the same copy of Windows from being installed on more than one machine, as was possible with earlier versions of Windows. Information from your video display adapter, SCSI and IDE drive adapters, processor type and serial number, hard drive serial number and your network adapter Media Access Control address are combined to form a unique identity for your computer. No two computers will have the same hardware signature. When you try to install the same copy of Windows on more than one PC and then try to activate online or by phone, the activation will fail.

The error code 0xC004E003 simply means that the Software Licensing Service reported that license evaluation failed.
