I restored my pc using dell restore pc utility and when I entered the product key of windows I received an error code 0xC004E003
the software licensing service reported that license evaluation failed
Also, have a look at the following article link along with J W Stuart MVP’s suggestion:
Error message when you try to activate a copy of Windows Vista: "The Software Licensing Service reported that the license evaluation failed: 0xC004E003"
Hope this helps.
Thanks and Regards,
