Did anyone else's Windows 8 randomly deactivate today.
What about some more details?
well when I started up my computer, I got a message from the Action Center saying to reactivate Windows 8, when it was activated and fine yesterday.
How did you activate, via KMS or official retail key ?
Or did you used an "Activator"? Or what else you'd done?
I used W!nvator the first time, and then I used my WMC key. This morning, I used Microsoft Toolkit to reactivate it.
Version I have is: Windows 8 Pro.
My point of view : too much different processes for activation, you should try a fresh reinstall using MTK only.
ok, thanks for the info.
here all went absolutely perfect on some boxes both legally and KMSed
No, absolutely not, the bought Retail doesn't do such things. )
My Windows 8 Pro (legal - Retail) with MCE (the free key - Retail - legal) got deactivated Sunday. Had to run the "Slmgr.vbs /ato" to reactivate.
I have Office 2013 with KMS on the laptop though.
interesting. Sunday was no update yet. So reason certainly was somewhere else
It's maybe because of the Internet connection. I had several times to reactivate to while on the move using my Laptop which has only legal apps installed. Also a simple restart would activate again.
As I use a lot Macros, I created one for re-activation and I need only to press my Hot-Key (3 key's at the same time), That works fast and well.
