    Unless KMS V6 gets emulated we cannot activate Windows 8.1 Enterprise using KMS server :(

    Google "remove windows 8.1 watermark" and you will find a way to do it. I just removed mine last night but i forgot what i used.

    I was able to remove the watermark on 8.1 Enterprise x64 using Watermark_Editor.exe v1.0.1.0

    dropbox.com/s/vneo6m2x64pzgr0/Watermark_Editor.rar OR h++ps://app.sugarsync.com/wf/D0945626_097_608518542

    Thanks for posting. I'll give it a try and see if it works. As long as the "Activate Windows" watermark is gone, I couldn't care less about the build number. Thanks again.

    There is no KMS V6 at the moment!




    BTW:

    The info about the appearance of an online Host or even better, an Emulator, will rush like a Tsunami through this forums, then through the net, trust me :cool2:.

    Currently there is no way that some (individual) can activate W8.1 Enterprise. This has been discussed already. If there is anything in near future i will update here.

    Thanks

    It does get rid of the windows build watermark, but not the activate windows watermark. After a few hours, it is back.

    I just find it weird, why there isn't any hacktivation on the net right now, I'm not in favor of those tools, but it could give me a change of trying the new Windows 8.1 before a true solution comes out.

    where is your problem? You can try it without activation for at least 30 days plus several rearms. It is fully functional. Only thing is that you cannot do customization. Until this period of trial ends, some might figured out how to activate it in terms of a KMS server or even the MTK tool :D

    There is no grace period in Win 8:

    I agree. While I know that the tools do not represent a long term solution for circumventing activation, they would at least allow for me to use the operating system without the nagging watermarks until there is a viable solution for legitimate activation.

    With Windows 8, it was a matter of days before tools were released to allow both "hacktivation" and removal of watermarks, depending on which route you wanted to go. I understand there isn't the same sense of urgency with this because people can activate pro with retail keys. Still, it just surprises me.
