    I activated Windows through the promotion in which M$ was giving away free media center keys. I'd like to use Advanced Tokens Manager to backup my activation but have been running into a problem when attempting to restore the activation.

    I was able to backup my activation successfully however after reformatting and reinstalling windows 8 pro and downloading the media center add-on I was not able to restore my activation.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Tell us exactly what you did. Are all files there in the backup? The subfolder "Windows Activation Backup" with data.dat and tokens.dat?
    It worked for me, and is the only way I can keep ProWMC "activated" (the other data.dat method doesn;t work for me anymore, not even with a "valid" file...) So good thing I had my ATM backups!! I did numerous reinstalls, both x86 and x64 on same PC, 1 ATM backup works for both.

    (Edit: for me, it worked without copying data.dat *before* the ATM restore.)

    Report the issue with all the informations here:

    And you need to install the Windows 8 Pro with Windows Media Center instead of installing the Windows 8 Pro and adding manually the Media Center.

    These issues isn't a bug but a problem of the Operating System that is not able to accept the media center key. You need to install it cleanly.

    Sorry, but maybe your tool is better than you think :biggrin:. I installed Windows 8 ProWMC from a wim made with the HowTo from the "Creating a AIO with ProWMC only etc". I backed up the activation back in oct/nov (just to be sure), and tested a restore last week. For me, it works! But maybe that's bacause I reinstalled from that modified wim?
    As I said, the "data.dat" method doesn't work for me anymore (even after copying it a second time, reinstalling with /ipk etc.), so ATM is a very elegant solution with its nice GUI!!! A Pro tool for a Pro OS!

    I had also installed Windows 8 Pro, activated by KMS and then upgraded to WMC by free Microsoft Key. Yesterday, i re-installed Windows 8 Pro with WMC (made with Deltas available here at MDL), then installed Office 2013 and finally restored the Activation Backup by Advanced Tokens Manager.

    It works flawlessly. My both Windows 8 and Office 2013 got activated at an instant. Thanks to Josh Cell for the amazing piece of Software. :biggrin5:
