    Hi, I just repair installed my machine, and lost the activation. Where can I find the latest version of KMS for activation of Windows 8.1 and Office 2013?

    Where is the "KMS section" in this forum?

    MTK is abandoned by its developer, KMS_VL_ALL is the most uptodate KMS solution and has active support.

    Office 2013 can be either Retail or VL. If it is Retail you must convert it to VL before activating with KMS_VL_ALL:

    Code:
    # Check Activation Status:
    
    * You can use those scripts to check the status of Windows and Office products
    
    * Both scripts do not require running as administrator, a double-cick to run is enough
     
    * Differences:
    
    - Check-Activation-Status.cmd: 
    query and execute official licensing VBScripts: slmgr.vbs for Windows, ospp.vbs for Office
    it can show exact date on when will Windows Volume activation will expire
    Office 2010 ospp.vbs show few info
    
    - Check-Activation-Status-Alternative.cmd:
    query and execute native WMI functions, no vbscripting involved
    it show extra more info (SKU ID, key channel)
    it can show status of Office UWP apps
    it does not show expiration date for Windows
    it show more detailed info for Office 2010

    I am confused does it mean Office is actually activated? If so how can that be, since my Windows is not activated yet.

    What is the meaning of OfficeProPlusVL_KMS_Client edition ? Does it mean I have the VL version of Office?

    Is there any way I can remove my previous activation? It was done with Microsoft Toolkit.

    I also get the following error when I use Check-Activation-Status.cmd

    Code:
    ERROR DESCRIPTION: The Software Licensing Service reported that the product was
    activated but the owner should verify the Product Use Rights.
    
    How can it show my office products as activated? When Windows is not activated?

    You have Office VL
    it seems activated already, through your LAN or VM NAT

    why are you removing IDs? they are mostly generic :)

    that is just side-effect-info error you get when your machine does not have BIOS SLIC 2.1 (i.e. Windows 7 OEM support)

    you need to activate Windows then
    unless your machine have this limitation

    since yoy are using Professional, better to use Windows Loader to activate

    What is Windows Loader? Can't I use KMS_VL_ALL ?

    Do you think Office is Activated from my previous installation? I recently did a repair install/in-place upgrade.

    Do you think I should start over from scratch ?

    Yes you can

    maybe

    clean is always preferable, but if you don't have issues just try to activate with KMS_VL_ALL
