    Hello. I installed w8PRO retail, then enter XXXXX.J8CK4, then slmgr /skms ecc.ecc. then I attempt to activate with KMS several times, but no result. I used :
    147.134.1.42:1688
    win8kms4.mooo.com
    kms.creighton.edu:1688
    lunar21.no-ip.org:80
    I run cmd.exe as Admin, and I synchronized with time.windows.com both with fuse UTC+1(Rome) and UTC+2(Cairo) but it is impossible to connect with the server : the returned error code is always 0xC004F074
    I attempted to execute w32tm /resync but have error : the service is not running.
    I downloaded and installed VAMT 2.0 Volume Activation Management Tool and NetFamework 3.5, and granted connection in the Windows Firewall : but nothing. It seems there is not connections with the servers.
    I have received from M$ the code for WMC but I can't use it !
    What can I do ?

    I had this very same problem yesterday.
    I kept trying the servers one after another.
    Eventually the lunar21.no-ip.org:80 was successful.
    I kept my uk time without any alterations when trying.

    Just keep trying

    Why on earth have you started a new thread for this? There's a sticky thread for everything about KMS Activation. It may be you are trying to activate via incorrect servers, see this post.

    Edit: Server in linked post is working at time of this post. Also lunar21 changes his sig according to the status of his server, just look for one of his posts and see his sig.
