    I used Windows Toolkit to activate Office 2013.But I had to reinstall windows 8 & Office 2013 but when I use Windows Toolkit I get the error <Cannot Activate because this product is incapable of KMS Activation.> I did close UAC,Firewall& window Defender & rebooted. It won't work now.

    1. spend a little more time reading this forum, especially a pinned thread:
    http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/39048-HOW-TO-KMS-HOST-and-TOOLS-v-3-0
    2. find a VOL version of the office 2013.

    Older versions of MTK would convert the installed Office from RETAIL to VL. That is no longer the case. You either have to get a VL copy from the Applications forum, or convert the Setup before installing. Note this won't work on C2R (Click2Run) Installers.
