Why not use 8ctivator.....all activation process would be much easier!
Which activato can do the same thing without any changes of Windows Files?
But apart from this, I would know if i have wrote correct things..
Providing the address is online that should work.
No. Why use an application that is likely to infect you when the same thing can be done from command line or a batch script with zero risk.
Mask/remove key from post
Sorry Daz, I thought that there were not problems with the Key because it was provided from microsoft on his site, but ok.
One last question and then this thread can be closed..
What are the benefits (or disadvantages ) from installing the Vl version?
Just one disadvantage i think so... You cant use retail key on it to activate permanently if required in future..
8ctivator against virustotal.com gave zero ifections though, so one would say is safe and easy to use.
what is an 8ctivator? Did I miss something or is it a greek version of ......
There's no trusted source for it though so it can easily be "mirrored" with a trojan attached.
At the moment theres things like:
But I honestly don't see whats wrong with:
slmgr.vbs -skms <address_here>
An exe that has a built in list of KMS hosts. It does nothing more than the above commands. Well, at least that's what it used to do.
It's got a misleading name by calling itself an activator as it's not. It's a helper tool.
slmgr.vbs -skms <address_here>
my question was not directed to the tool itself which I know but to the guy who talked about. Meanwhile there are some clowns around who have not the glimpse of an idea what they are talking about but currently bring a lot of traffic into the forum unnescessarely. therefore I asked this question. Nothing more
Gotcha. At least with my reply though it can educate others as there's far too many people online trying to get other people to run potentially dangerous software when the same thing can be achieved by using command line.
If I was going to use any software to activate Windows via KMS then I'd just use CODY's as it can activate a lot more than just Windows 8. Then of course there's the KMS VM's which are even safer (no remote connections), although may not pass all genuine tests.
Windows 8 AIO activator tool,first google result,works
Someone put it on the net where folks downloaded from.
By "mirrored" you mean that it can be copied to servers all over the world?
It activated my computer and windows say there are gonna be 180 days of activation. I can update normally.
But, now, how can iverify that this is the original non_trojan tool and not some bundled crapware?
perhaps you didn't get the joke out of todays work on MDL.
There were clowns around who got banned serveral times because of their funny nature. This sunday was a bad day for a greek guy who thought to be a big fish in the MDL universe and on other forums as well. So I'm curious how long his new attempt will last
Honestly, I don't think very long ... lol
That's what I mean by mirrored. If it's not downloaded from the original owner and you don't know any of the expected file information (MD5/SHA1) then how can you be sure it's clean? So that's why command line is recommended over it, or at least one of our own sources as the devs are active on the forum here.
It *must* be clean, because VirusTotal which scanned it with near 36 virus detection engines, say it is clean.
Even if it "was" downloaded from the author's site, still how would have been sure it was a pure product?
How can the author be excluded from trojan infect his own code?!
New versions with different trojans can be repacked over and over until no scanners detect them.
As for how you can detect things, I do it personally by analyzing the executable. I'll sandbox some things and others I'll inspect in IDA, or if they're built in .NET I'll view their source. We caught one guy out here at MDL before trying to steal peoples passwords from doing such tests.
