    Update: UniKMS Alpha2 ready for download.


    Currently Included Functions

    Activate Volume Editions of Vista, Windows7, Server2K8, Server2K8-R2 and Office2010 via emulated KMS Host.


    Not Yet Included Functions

    Practically all other features known from KMSA 5.0, such as GVLK Installation, HostMachineName Setting, ScheduledTask, etc.

    EDIT: If you would like to participate in the testing, and you have no previous experience with KMS, read MasterDisasters post for some KMS Basics.

    At the very least you have to know how to install the GVLK and set the Host Machine Name!




    Notes

    Since the download/feedback ratio in the other thread was about 200:10 i will make it better visible this time; if you do download it, please post some feedback too.

    This is an Alpha Test, not a release, which means it wont help me in the slightest if people just grab the file for the sake of grabbing it.

    All i am asking is that you tell if it worked or not.

    Thank You.



    Changelog

    • App environment now fully virtualized - interpreter plus all necessary files and scripts included to be 100% independent of system-resources and -paths

    • Inner structure significantly redesigned/simplified in the hopes that it will be more compatible with problematic setups that way

    1) KMSA itself is of course no longer an Alpha, it is at v5.0 which can be found here.

    File removed. Would it be possible that someone upload the file again?. Thanks.

    Well, it seems my new approach worked somewhat better.

    The app is now fully virtualized with all resources included so that files and paths should no longer be a problem.

    I have also redesigned the inner structure, which will hopefully solve the problems with some Server setups.

    First post updated.

    Tested on Windows 7 Professional (x86) with Office 2010 (x86), both activated.

    Tested on Windows 7 Ultimate (x64) with Word 2010, again worked.

    Will test on Server Core installation.

    Thanks.

    If the basic app works on Core as well i will start implementing your auto-repeat routine and some other things.

    Tested on Server 2008 R2 Standard Core, it did not work. Jumps straight to office activation, errors out with osppsvc not installed.

    About 0x800700D error... im one of those that was geting this error on office since OS reinstall 3 weeks ago (i reinstall every month or two anyway), today with about ~10 days of "trial" i decided to rearm office and now suddenly KMS activation works fine.

    Edit: View attachment 6465 this is office 2010 rearm method taken from office activator.

    Since the choices seem to be skipped; could it be that Core is missing choice.exe or something like that?


    Also whats odd is that it jumps to Office activation. In the script the Office part comes after the Windows part, so im not sure how the Office part could be executed first.

    Or maybe it did do the Win part too and you just didnt notice it because there werent any errors?

    Yes, it is known that this can help with a persistent 800700D.

    A slmgr -rilc might have the same effect.

    OSPPRearm is available at

    Code:
    %PROGRAMFILES%\Common Files\microsoft shared\OfficeSoftwareProtectionPlatform
    A rearm changes the Client Machine ID and renews the data in the trusted store both in Office and Windows.

    The screen flashes the menu but does not prompt and goes straight for office activation.

    (OP)
    And i think i know why now.

    Code:
    choice /c 12 /n /m "Enter a number: "
    if errorlevel 2 goto act
    if errorlevel 1 goto ato
    The Win part comes before the Office part, but goto act is the first command after the choices.

    This clearly indicates that the choices are just being skipped, and the only reasons i can think of why it would do that is if choice.exe doesnt exist or cannot be reached.

    Would you mind investigating this?

    Choice.exe is available in Core and it works with a small batch I tried.

    Interesting.

    Another one of these things that dont seem to make any sense at all as it is entirely illogical for it to work on all systems except for one.

    I mean a missing choice.exe or the app refusing to work on any system, that might have given me something to go on.

    But under these circumstances i dont even know what to debug since the app itself doesnt seem to actually have a problem.


    So lets sum this up:

    • A standalone bat with choices works on all editions

    • A standalone bat with choices works on Core as well

    • The app executing a bat with choices works on all editions

    • The app executing a bat with choices works not on Core


    Whats the missing piece here?

    In what way is Core different from the rest?

    Why would Core, and only Core, skip the choices, and only the choices, of an application-executed bat when the same bat would work just fine as a standalone?
