    Hi All,

    Since KMSnano is working perfectly to activate Windows, I was wondering if I could just swap my product key out with a "sideloading enabled" one.

    I can sideload metro apps fine if I have enabled the Developer License via Visual Studio (or via Get-WindowsDeveloperLicense) but I absolutely despise the the very idea of needing to reactivate every 30 days (or until Microsoft stops the activation server in a few years).

    I have Win8 pro since I don't want to do that Domain stuff in Enterprise. For the record, I don't want to use apps I haven't paid for, I just want to run my software that I have put effort into porting to Windows.

    Has anyone tried this and can share their experiences? I don't yet have a sideloading key so I wanted to check if it would work before I attempted to track one down :)
