    Note: This is not a piracy method. It is to install Office 2010 support on your legitimate KMS host. It requires that you have a legitimate Office 2010 KMS key.

    The original KMS Host available from Microsoft only supports Server 2003 SP2, Win 7 and 2008R2. I found this out the hard way when I upgraded my KMS host to Server 2012 and Office 2010 clients stopped activating. So I extracted the original file from Microsoft, and hacked at the installer until it would work. The results of my work are provided for your perusal.

    I also built a little batch file which generates a report of KMS status.

    Backup from Advanced Tokens Manager

    That would only work if the rest of the info was provided also

    uuid.bios =

    Most likely:

    uuid.bios = "56 4d 81 c6 cd 3a d8 e4-db 29 75 6d f1 39 ac b9"


    Otherwise it will not work

    Can this be run on top of the windows 8 enterprise hyperv kms host or does the default listening port need to be changed ?
