    as host kms

    With QEMU the KMS server still runs on an emulated machine, and not on host OS. Considering resource usage and performance it doesn't even come close to a KMS actually running on the host OS.

    Question then would be: how to set up host on physical machine without having a CSVLK is legit :hmm:?
    So KMSmicro or better new WES-KMS-Host by Nucleus, last one should run smooth on this system. Simply download, unpack, install VM Ware Player and start provided +.vmx file after wards, wait for host to start.

    I believe the basic version of VMWare ESXi / vsphere is still free for personal use.
    You could install that instead of an OS and then use the WES-KMS-Host files to setup a virtual machine on the ESXi / vsphere host.

    Do you know if its possible to start the VM when I boot up the computer I run it on? I'd like for it to run on Host Windows Startup. With KMSMicro, I just threw a delayed task scheduler to startup the qemu.
