    Hi, Enthousiast.
    Sorry, my English isn't good, and I think I didn't understand very well.

    Maybe do you intend that I should use a kms emulator, as KMSPico?

    If the Windows 7 is in perpetual grace, you can upgrade to Windows 10, but there are issues:
    1. Windows 10 does not know any OOBE grace (initial 30 days in Genuine mode), you will be in Notification mode right away (=non-activated with all its restrictions, mostly personalization and watermark). This tool is does not work for Windows 8 and beyond.
    2. Windows 10 will not be activated by a digital license/entitlement/Store license. That's because a Windows 7 in trial does not allow for a free HwID.

    Using Windows Loader (all Win7 SKUs except Enterprise) or a KMS solution like KMS_VL_ALL (only Pro or Enterprise, note that KMSPico and MTK are dead and buried)* will truly activate Windows 7, and Windows 10 will keep the activation after upgrade. Note that activation is hardware-bound.


    Edit: See post below for KMS-activated Windows.

    10 Pro won't get a HWID from a KMS activated win 7 and for enterprise neither, the KMS activation will keep.

    For 7 Pro KMS activated there needs a specific upgrade step, first upgrading to 10586, before upgrading to the current builds.

    Sorry, it's hard to remember all these special requirements. But, if you use KMS, why should you stop? KMS works on any Windows 10.

    The HWID is a free gift for the life of the hardware for upgraders :)

    ps, he/she never told us what sku he/she is running, only a hint with mentioning the loader.

    Hi,
    a friend of mine has Win7 with the old Trilogy (IR5+IORRT for Office 2010).

    He would like to install IR7 (Rearm Wizard) but without unistall Office 2010.

    So I tried to uninstall the old IR5 but not the old IORRT and then install the newer Rearm Wizard.
    But when we tried to install it (as admin, I know), a black empty Dos window appeared with only the flashing cursor and stuck.

    Maybe Rearm Wizard can't be installed if there is the old IORRT still present?

    I installed Rearm Wizard many times in different "just installed" Win7 systems and I never had any problem so far.

    I don't know why, but I found that if I change the code from:

    Code:
    CLS=new ActiveXObject("Shell.Application").ShellExecute("\""+WScript.ScriptFullName+"\"","","","runas",1);/*&Echo off&title
    Rearm Wizard&NET FILE>NUL 2>&1||(CSCRIPT //B //E:JSCRIPT %0&EXIT /B)
    @echo off
    cls
    
    
    to...
    Code:
    @echo off
    cls
    mode con: cols=50 lines=12
    >nul 2>&1 "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\cacls.exe" "%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\config\system"
    if '%errorlevel%' NEQ '0' (
    echo Requesting administrative privileges...
    goto UACPrompt
    ) else ( goto gotAdmin )
    :UACPrompt
    echo Set UAC = CreateObject^("Shell.Application"^) > "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
    set params = %*:"=""
    echo UAC.ShellExecute "%~s0", "%params%", "", "runas", 1 >> "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
    "%temp%\getadmin.vbs"
    exit /B
    :gotAdmin
    if exist "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" ( del "%temp%\getadmin.vbs" )
    pushd "%CD%"
    
    
    the windows prompt opens regulary and all is ok.
    The funny thing is I have others three Win7 systems and the above lines work well. :hmm:
