What is Microsoft KMS Activation and how it works ?

A Microsoft Key Management Server (KMS) is a legitimate service offered under Microsoft Volume Activation 2.0 solution which is used to activate volume licensed Microsoft products. The KMS allows automated activation of Microsoft products for organizations within their own network, eliminating the need for individual computers to connect to Microsoft for product activation.

The internally hosted KMS server activates client computers for a period of 180 day, once a machine is activated it will attempt to communicate with the same KMS server every 7 days to renew it's activation resetting it license counter back to 180 days. If the KMS activated client is not able to re-communication to the KMS after 180 days, the machine will become unlicensed and go to it's 30 day grace period and notify the user of this change. If the machine is not activated against the KMS after the 30 day grace period it will enter a reduced functionality mode until it is able to connect to it's KMS or is changed to a MAK license key and activated with other methods.

Windows 8 Activation using KMS

While being a legitimate service from Microsoft for volume licensing and activation of genuine copies of there software's, KMS activation process has been exploited by pirates since Windows XP and is is still done. KMS activation is also the only working pirated crack for Windows 8 as all available Windows 8 activators are based on this method.

To use and activate these keys all a user needs to do is to open an administrative command prompt on the client, and type slmgr /ipk followed by ENTER. Do note that this requires a KMS server to be configured and present, the so called Windows 8 crackers are basically KMS activators which simply configure a KMS server to use and apply the above command to activate.

Doesn't work for me, it can't activate for some reason says a file, folder or some other thing isn't named correctly or found

Hi, I thoroughly read and browsed your site but could not find a link to download kms activator. Would you like to please help me download one for me? Thank you

Read the article it tells you how to use the key

Hey Mr, read the damned article. It tells you how to run the activation right under the key lists.

A computer repair guy I found on facebook installed office 2016 and windows 10 pro on my computer and used KMS activator ultimate to validate the activation keys. he didn't tell me how it works or that after 180 days the software becomes unusable. I had to spend $350 buying the legal activation keys for software i'd already paid him to install. is what he did illegal?
