    Hey,

    I'm new to this forum.

    I have downloaded Office.Pro.Plus.2013.x64.EN.X18-55297 from torrents and installed Office 2013. I have downloaded Office Toolkit 2.4.7 and after I hit EZ Activator, it always comes back with

    "----------------------------------------Installing Any Matching Volume Keys.
    ----------------------------------------
    Attempting To Activate Microsoft Office
    Attempting to Activate OfficeProPlusVL_KMS_Client
    ERROR CODE: 0xC004F074
    ERROR TEXT: The Software Licensing Service reported that the product could not be activated. No Key Management Service (KMS) could be contacted. Please see the Application Event Log for additional information.
    <Product activation failed>
    ----------------------------------------"

    I don't know what to do. Previously I had Office 2010 that came pre installed with HP lappy I bought. Guess the 180 days got over, Office 2010 said Activation required. So I uninstalled it, removed any left over folders from C drive and installed Office 2013.

    Does any one have any advice? Please do help... Thanks in Advance..

    It'll not activate for the time being with MS Toolkit as MS KMS service is updated with version 6.. and MS Toolkit using KMS version 5..

    MTK still works with Office 2013, as long as Windows 8.1 is not installed. Windows 8 and Windows 7 are ok to activate. Check official support thread if you are not using Windows 8.1

    If it´s the AV which is blocking traffic via localhost, the Emulator of KMSpico will fail like the MTK one :hmm:.

    @ OP

    What Office is installed, x64 on Windows x64 or different?

    You can also try it manually online by opening CMD as Admin and entering following lines, one by one (it assumes Office installed in default location):

    Code:
    cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" /sethst:58.173.212.51 
    cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" /setprt:1688
    cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs" /act

    Must be an issue your end, it works fine here with Firefox

    Maybe you are having network issues, might explain not being able to contact the KMS server as it runs on localhost

    I tried opening CMD as Admin and typed the 1st line of code.. Got an input error message saying : There is no script engine for file extension ".51".

    So I downloaded and installed KMSpico.. After installing it.. Office 2013 got highlighted in RED while the loading was going on.. A moment later Office 2013 became green in color and the the window closed :/ :/
