    If you mean the russian virtual machine thing which does not work with Windows 8, then why would it work on Server 2012?

    I found this link prathaprabhu . blogspot. com and contacted prathaprabhu. He sells license keys for Windows Server 2012 and claims that Microsoft has changed something from Server 2008 & Windows 7 that prevents any sort of KMS crack similar to ZWT Keygen.

    I don't know if it is too early to say, but is there any reason why a similar ZWT Keygen could not be made to work with Server 2012? Does Server 2012 "phone home" or something that informs Microsoft that your copy is not legal in terms of purchase?

    i know (from the book of dell) that we don't need to do anything special to install windows 2012 (put the CD, click next next next .. and that all), so i pretty sure that they will be OEM/SLP key !
    Dell is already saling windows 2012 so we simply need to wait ...

    I installed the trial version yesterday. No key needed (it is built in). It is activated for 180 days.

    Don't forget you can Rearm it too, giving you atleast another 180 days
    (SVR2008 trial had 3x Rearms giving 720 days total)
    AND...
    You can convert it to either OEM or KMS at anytime by installing a valid key. ;)

    It's just that KMS requests and responses are now being encrypted in some pretty twisted way.

    Yep thats what i will do, just reinstall after the term is up. Works better than any hacks to get past activation. Only takes a day every 3 moths or 6 months to reinstall everything from scratch.

    Best alround solution.

    Looking for an actual activation method, not actually a reinstall method.

    I agree it's no big deal to reinstall, but sometimes it can come at an inconvenient time. :)
