    I just activated it and i'm just wondering does it actually activate it or only activate and reactivate every time when its last days are up? I get that it activated and working but is it not possible to find a crack code or something. May be stupid question but i'm just wondering.o_O

    KMS activation used by the toolkit is time-limitted by design; 180 days to be exact. AutoKMS will care about the reactivation.

    Huh, ok then. Just wondering isn't Microsoft office professional plus a non subscription? Because reason why I chose this is because I wasn't hoping for any sort of tool to activate it every time after it expire date.

    Has nothing to do with a subscription, KMS activation is normally used by enterprises and universities/institutes. It's a proper way to achieve activation without messing with leaked keys (which are blacklisted/blocked soon) or system files (hacktivation).

    Well I suppose if the tool gets the job done then nothing to worry about. I just tend to not have open source software on my computer but nvm. Thanks for help you two, and keep up the great work.:D

    You can also use the 'Activate' Function, then nothing is installed (Emulator is shortly started and closed immediately afterwards). Not that hard to do once in half a year :cool2:.

    Oh, I see. So this function enables the activation for a period of how many days you have, then when office pro plus expires i can simply re download it again and use the active function to extend the time? Where as the autoKMS does it for you? I suppose that's why it called "AutoKMS".o_O

    Yep.
    Yep +1. (Actually it's a task in Task Scheduler [pointing to AutoKMS.exe] and some files copied)

    Like the OP, I am also new to KMS.... All I have used till now is Keys.

    So KMS hooks to a public server and activates our copy. So once activated, does it keep on transmitting certain/vital PC info. throughout till expiry to its home server?
    Does this method have any kind of privacy issue?

    Also at the end of 180days the software (office/windows 8) will give warning that its expiring and then I can re-run the KMS OR it will expire all of a sudden.

    What is the step by step procedure to Run KMS - If anybody canhelp me out here.

    Thanks.

    This works offline with MTK :cool2:. Install AutoKMS for automatic reactivation.

    Download Microsoft Toolkit from my sig, start it, navigate to Office Toolkit (the little Office symbol at bottom) 'Activation' and hit 'EZ-Activator'.

    and with MTK it will not expire since it runs on reboot or every 24 hours (not always running) to keep the KMS activation around 178 to 180 days. Because MS and Co. try to stop these, make sure you make an exclusion in your antivirus for c:/windows/autokms/autokms.exe as it is what will run once at every reboot to keep the system activated. There is no need to ever have an internet connection with this method, as MTK uses an emulation of a KMS server.

    Well my main question regarding security and privacy is still a mystery !
    Apart from that what is MTK? is it - Microsoft Tool Kit ?

    Also, I don't want anything tht boots automatically on my PC at startup OR AutoKMS.... Ol' school guy who prefers Manual, so I guess I just have to use KMS, so again does software expires directly OR it given warning ?

    For activating office 2013, there are so many ways which is all alien for me:
    Microsoft Toolkit; MTK v2.5 BETA or higher for Windows 8.1
    KMSpico; For Windows 8.1
    Duality 420
    WOAT

    How can I know the pros & cons of each of the above activation method ?

    PS: I require just MS word 2013, so any easier/key way to activate ?

    For Win 8.1 only MTK and KMSpico, the other two tools work on Win 7 only.

    If you like it manual: get MTK v2.5.2, start it, navigate to Office Toolkit via the little Office button (down-right), open 'Activation' tab and hit activate. This will start the Emulator, activate and shut it down ... Done :good3:. Nothing gets installed that way :cool2:.

    Is there some reason for running it more than once every 6 months ?

    lol no idea Mr. Jinje, other than set it and forget it. Why every reboot or 24 hours isn't my decision with MTK.
