    hi, thx for the help, if i am not mistaken, this kind of tool can only check the key validity, but not check "the key itself is activated/used before or the key is brand new unused" right?

    No i don't think it can check if its been used before.

    As far as I know, no tool exists for standard OEM/retail keys. Only MAK keys can be checked for validity, using the VAMT.
