    No, Activation is tied to the Hardware/VM on which the key was used. :smokecowboy:

    Now for the long answer.

    The activation tokens.dat is tied with the motherboard, cpu, network card, etc. From there a hardware id is generated on the fly from those to which the token activates against so as it is unique to the system. That means even though the VM has the same hardware it will not have the same Hardware ID. This makes it impossible to transfer licenses with almost the exact same hardware from machine to machine.

    You can utilize data.dat of a VM and activate via phone after putting your OWN WMC promotional key as mentioned in this thread.

    And for the record though, VMs get a different unique ID, motherboard make/model and MAC address.

    That listen like to ask MDL Users for to do an Hacktivation Activation for you?!

    First: Hacktivation is against the Forum Rules of MDL and banned;
    Second: Nobody with an honest mind would like to start an criminal action for an unknow (and known) person! Who would do that would just be stupid, at least!
    Third: You have to do your own "dirty" work!

    One moment!

    To share hacktivated OS / files is NOT allowed at MDL, that is right.
    To discuss about is no problem, also to share experiences. To share experiences is important even to recognize that hacktivation is no proper solution.
    The OP did not necessarily ask for hacktivation (which means to use altered / exchanged system files), he wrote 'activator'. MTK is also an activator.

    I don't like the harsh imputing tone here. To correct a member is usually the job of a moderator. The OP is a new member and should be welcomed with any question.

    Yen, I believe that Pisthai refers to the post above his. He does not answer OP's question. To my knowledge, such ID phone activation requests are forbidden. Correct me if I'm wrong

    No one used the word "hacktivation" except the OP. I think you're trying to shift the focus towards others.

    I don't shift anything. Simply let us wait until Pisthai answers and then we know whom he directed his message to. that easy

    Yes, that's the right thing to do because even OP didn't mentioned the word "hacktivation"; he simply asked for help.

    Yes they are. But that has no reference to hacktivation


    No, nobody used the word except pisthai.
    Hacktivation has neither a reference to an separate activator nor to phone IDs.

    This is maybe all just a mistake.:)
    We should refer to usernames.

    To me OP = original poster = thread starter.

    Hmmm I think I'll take the input from this in order to link to the rules regarding hacktivation though.
