    Hi, I posted here a while back when I encountered problems with my Windows 8 installation (activated via KMS) and Office 2013 (activated by KMS).

    I currently have a Lenovo work laptop with OEM Windows 8 Core version.

    I want to install Office 2013 VL and activate via KMS but I am scared it will break my current Windows activation, as it did with my previous computer (My Windows 8 installation kept deactivating).

    Is there any way I can test this without breaking? Is there a way I can take a full laptop backup, and are there any known problems with regards Windows 8 OEM and Office 2013 VL KMS?

    Thanks

    I don't think it is "officially" supported, maybe that's why bunch of people are complaining :unsure:
    Again, I'm following Microsoft rules... :rolleyes:

    BTW, thanks for the info, i didnt know mtk could activate core and PWMC ;)

    I used the method on this thread: Office 2013 MutliLang 2 Click Setup & Activation! (for Win7 & Win8)
    Sorry can't post the link but that is the thread title.
    With the online activation...

    • Grab a clean copy of Office (Volume) from here (Check need a Volume ISO? link) (Torrent)
    • You can also download from here
    • Activate with MTK (Click EZ-Activator)

    Go with recommendations by Alex. The mentioned Tool is rather old and was updated last long ago.
