Is the machine on campus?

Connected to the wired network?  (Arguably activation should work over a legit authenticated UVM wireless connection, but the question rules out those using a rogue WAP without getting into policy discussions).

Where did you get the installer from?  Did it come from \\files\mca?

I have the option of changing the product key, but I don't know what it is.  I have installed many times on other machines without this problem.  There is an error code 0x004F074.  I haven't had this problem before with this installer.
