KMS Host Keys to Products Activated for Windows 8.1

Answers

  • Hi,

    after testing I figured out that Windows 8.1 can´t be activated with a Windows Server 2012 VL key, unfortunately its not like a Service Pack. So I think its only possible with a Windows Server 2012 R2 VL or Windows 8.1 VL key.


    Kind regards,

    Tim

  • Hi,

    Currently Windows 8.1 is not formally released, so it seems we still cannot find enough information about it.

    However Windows 8.1 is more like a service pack to Windows 8 when it is released, so personally I think it will be the same as Windows 8 in products activation.
