    Hello,

    I'm new to this forum. Yesterday I finally activated my install of Office 2013 RTM retail in Windows 8 pro using the Skype call. Before that, I tried to activate using a KMS server (KMSMicro) but It was only for a VOLUME edition of Office 2013, so It didn't work.

    Now that I have a full Office 2013 retail activated, I want to remove the MKS server I set up earlier and clean all the files related to it, but don't know how to do it.

    Thank you in advance to anyone that can help me!

    Above is self explanatory so no data is there & no cleanup is required

    To be sure you can use command

    ospp.vbs /remhst

    Thanks for your help. Could you please post the steps to apply that command?, I'm very novice on this.

    And what message appears when you type this command? I want to confirm I dont have any KMS host

    Tanks in advance...
