Installed Windows 8 Pro (not VL, couldn't even get to "Add New Features" to install WMC with VL even using the gpedit) with retail install key, KMS activation with gvlk key for pro (Make sure to slmgr -ckms after slmgr -ato), installed WMC after getting a key from MS on the free offer link above (took a full 24 hours before email came). After a reboot done and click to customize your user pic and you will see the need to activate and activate.
that's what I did in a nutshell
i have windows 8 enterprise act via kms servers but i still have act till 24/4/2014 so how can i act permanently ?
Currently you cannot act perm with Ent. To my knowledge
And you never will be able to.
KMS, by its very nature, is a 180-day periodic activation. You need to understand the reason for KMS in the first place; Microsoft don't run their own KMS servers; each organization has an internal KMS server which desktop clients connect to in order to activate, in much the same way that the desktop clients connect to an on-site Active Directory server to manage group policy. KMS is designed for site licensing, where there's no NEED for a "permanent" activation as such. It's not a case of waiting until the right key comes out or something, the technology just simply isn't designed to work that way. It's like saying, "how to make my car fly?"; there's no special petrol which gives you aerodynamics and increased lift.
As far as I'm aware, there are no activation methods which are designed to last forever anymore; even MAK and Retail keys will deactivate upon a significant enough hardware change. OEM SLP may be the exception to this, but I haven't looked into OA 3.0 enough to be sure. It's not like the old days of XP/2K3 where VL keys would simply bypass activation entirely; EVERYTHING gets validated one way or another now, either by Microsoft, an on-site KMS server, or your own BIOS. And ALL of them can be deactivated in certain situations. KMS is the only one with a specific time limit, but it's also the easiest to work around at the moment.
If you've got £15, buying a key is the easiest solution for worry-free activation at the moment; failing that, you'll have to wait for a mini-KMS emulator (ZWT are probably working on one) or someone to crack OA 3.0 like Daz's loader.

Why do you need to? It's better to activate without talking to Microsoft, because you can change hardware as you like without giving account of why you changed your hardware the 3245234th time this month.
Why is an expiring activation bad if you have the ability to be your own activations server?
own server how
Maybe this way:
