    Is there anyway to activate Office 2013 on Windows 8.1 Pro? (other then having a valid key)

    As I understand it, Windows 8.1 uses a different version of KMS so the current crop of activators won't work

    Thanks in advance

    Just make some calls, then you can activate it.

    First find and install the newest KEYs according to the version you installed: VOL OR RETAIL...(A LOT YOU CAN FIND VIA GOOGLE)

    Then open word, choose to activate via phone, choose region: UK\US.....

    Then open skype, make free 800-xxxxx call, follow the guide and enter the numbers

    When all done, and if the key still valid, write down the numbers given back.

    At last, enter the numbers and Your office is activated!!

    Good luck.

    Apparently you can transfer your activation from Windows 8... see here.

    I begin to think Amresh has been replaced with a bot which posts random words to random posts for no reason.

    KMS still worked for office2013 with the win8.1 CP, so it is only with 8.1 RTM that KMS is changed. Is this right?

    Guys, you still having problems activating by phone? Right at the start there's the option to select home or business and she won't recognize the option entered (calling UK toll free)

    Will it work if the "source" is Windows 8 with WMC but the "target" Windows 8.1 without WMC? Or does it mess up my Windows activation when I swap the files?
