Unable to activate Windows 8 Pro error message slui.exe 0x2a 0xd0000010.

Original Title: slui.exe 0x2a 0xd0000010

Trying to activate windows 8 pro after purchasing the upgrade through MS online.  At first it was working fine then I got prompted to re-enter my activation code today which I did, now it will not activate.  What is weird is, if i go to system properties it says not activated,  I click to view details and then it tells me it is activated.

I feel like it is not, I cannot download apps or run updates to add features to windows

I've tried slui 3 to activate as well as running CMD slmgr.vbs -ato which still registers an error (same error as subject states).

I've done a refresh with windows tech on the line to restore windows again but that did not solve the issue.  I couldn't finish up with MS due time constraints.

Anyone run into anything like this before?  The upgrade was ran from Windows 7.

Sorry I haven't responded, I just got power back after the hurricane!  After the PC booted up again it finally had the status of activated.  I am not sure what did it, but at least it is working now.  Thanks everyone for replying.
