They did that with corel paintshop 10, 11 and 12.....nothing is impossible
I just wondered if anyone can answer this question..
I have installed the Mini KMS activator (v1.2) as a windows service (KMService) (by selecting this as an option when first running Mini KMS activator)
Is this enough to have the 180 days renewed automatically? Or do I stll need to manually reset it before the 180 day grace?
I think that's answered up the thread:
If you ever go past the 180 day period without checking in with KMS (let's say if you didn't have the service installed), there's a 30-day grace period, so it's hard to go wrong. I'm not sure how graceful that is, though. You may get warned every time running Office or Windows, I don't know.
I guess I did something wrong... I used the KMS Activator v 1.0 and it is good for 180 days. and every time I check , is is simply counting down... NO IT DOES NOT ACTIVATE EVERY 7 DAYS.
and yes it is installed as a SERVICE. you can use several different methods to check an see how many days you have left... before Activation is needed again.

Why would I want to change the Service. It works, Office is Activated. "Me GrandPa always said "If it works don't fix it.!!!"
Because it's no longer working for you? It may not be running, check that first. With KMS, activation isn't a one-time event, so it needs to work on an ongoing basis.
Sometimes install it with one key (uncheck the automate online activation box), and install again use another key will activate it dramatically.
Yep, i can confirm this, i did it myself. But "sometime" is not always though. There's still a big chance of failing.
Why not just use “Office 2010 Trial Extender” for 180 day and hope something new will came out?
Take a look at here:
Name: Office 2010 Trial Extender
Requirements: .NET Framework 3.5
Microsoft Office 2010 needs to be activated after 30 days. It can be rearmed 5 times, every rearm gives you additionally 30 days to activate.
If you always rearm it on the last day before it has to be activated that makes a total evaluation time of 6 * 30 = 180 days.
Although the rearm feature was made for corporate users, it cannot be illegal to use it since it's an official feature.
Anyway if you back up your entire hard disc without office installed you can after 180 days recover it again and just install office and you will have more 180 days for free.
How bout an even better Idea lol...
And I'm not insultin anybody here...
But if you saved the activation status by savin a few files here and there and in the registry and reapplied them latter couldn't you get a infinite rearm thing going...
And yes I am looking in your direction Timesurfer...
And yes I'm done with my personal project time to get back n the groove with office 2010...
UPDATE: Without having to reinstall office cause thats kinda annoying...
But if you could make it into a service you could keep it up indefinitely...
Well I guess its about time I used those 2 folders I was hanging on to that are marked activated and unactivated....
That way is for “premium” users.
The way I use if for non-premium user like me
i mean backup entire hard disc without office installed and after 180 days recover it again. Just need to re-install office en voilà assez! more 180 days for free.
Anyway I use to format and clean install at list 2 times a year… it’s the way I like
Sorry, but the link does not seem to be perfect. My BitDefender AV detects the file KMS activator v1.3 as a virus.
Strangely, the link I have mentioned in the thread "What version of mini-kms are we at now?" in post #11 is not detected as a virus.
So guys, better try that link..
Try now the SkyDrive link, both have now the virustotal report...... misfortunately, at about 35-40% antiviruses detect them as viruses....
Norton keeps stopping KMS-mini activator -
my Office 2010 has 20 days left before it stops dead! Can't extend another 180 days - Norton says KMS is a virus. Can this dilemma be solved? How? Helppppppp gracias, muchos
Sure, STOP Norton! run KMS, start Norton
KMS is definitely NOT a virus
Simple as that
I have Norton and I just went into settings & told Norton to Exclude autokms.exe
i am using mini-kms-activator. but when i try to install it avg says it's a Trojan. Why does avg say it's a trojan if it's clean?
Almost every antivirus at virustotal says it's a virus... At this point i think it's a virus.
Fail post is fail. If you would actually stop and think about it and do a little reading then you would know it's NOT a trojan.
