Hi everyone, I've read the majority of sticky threads on the forum but I'm a little confused about some things. I'm going to install and activate bother Windows 8 and Office 2013 on one machine and update my parent's old Vista machine to Windows 7 and Office 2013. This is what I understand: To activate Windows 8 via KMS: Code: slmgr.vbs -ipk <KEY> slmgr /skms <KMS SERVER> slmgr.vbs -ato slmgr /ckms Where <KEY> is a Windows 8 Professional KMS key and <KMS SERVER> is the address of a KMS server that is capable of activating Windows 8. This seems easy enough. Am I right there? Windows 7 can be activated with Daz's excellent Windows Loader. Simple. Now from what I understand, Office 2013 (VL editions, not retail) can be activated on Windows 7 with CODYQX4's Microsoft Toolkit, this isn't an option for Windows 8 though? Am I right? Is there a tool for activating Office 2013 (VL) on Windows 8 or a set of command lines to activate it via KMS in a similar fashion to how I activated Windows 8 above? Finally, is there a good GUI for automating this stuff every 180 days so I can just leave my Windows 8/Office 2013 to activate with KMS automatically? Sorry for having to post this. There's just a lot of information floating about and I'm a little confused! Thanks for your time in advance.
