    Hello All, Where can I get a good clean copy of KMSAUTO, I have a legally bought copy of Windows 8.1 which won't activate due to me trying it on another computer, All the sites supplying KMS seem to start downloading and installing all sorts of rubbish.

    Sure, in my signature. I am translator of it and guarantee is clean...:D
    The problem of the crap installed at downloading time is not KMSAuto Net related. It's a filehost policy to install such a crap...

    You can get from Mr.X sinature.

    But i would still recommend to use a MDL solution like Microsoft Toolkit or KMSpico (see my sig), as they have a support thread, that might be helpful in case of problems :cool2:.

    Hi guys

    My Windows 8.1 license is going to expire on 26th of June and I have no clue how to deal with the issue.

    I have installed MS Toolkit 2.5.1 but cannot get it to renew my licence. Earlier the Windows 8 was upgrade to 8.1 with KMS Ultimate Activator. I have no product key whatsover.

    I am getting the following error in the Activation area when I press Activate button in MS Toolkit: <Product key installation failed>
    The Software Licensing Service reported that the product SKU is not found.


    And when I hit EZ-Activator, I get the following error:

    ----------------------------------------
    Installing Any Matching Volume Keys.
    ----------------------------------------
    Attempting To Activate Microsoft Windows
    Attempting to Activate Professional
    ERROR CODE: 0x8007000D
    ERROR TEXT: The data is invalid.
    <Product activation failed>
    ----------------------------------------

    I am not a techie, so any help in this regard would be highly appreciated :)

    Post output from:

    Code:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /dlv
    from admin command prompt.

    What AV is installed? Was the toolkit ever successful or did you try the first time?

    Thanks for prompt reply s1ave77 :)

    Here is what I got from the step you proposed. I hope I did it fine.

    Code:
    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]
    (c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    
    C:\Users\hp1> cscript slmgr.vbs /dlv
    Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.8
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    
    Input Error: Can not find script file "C:\Users\hp1\slmgr.vbs".
    
    C:\Users\hp1>

    There is no additional AV installed on the machine. I have whatever Windows has by default.

    About toolkit, I was able to validate Microsoft Word 2013. But the toolkit gave the error for Windows 8.1 validation which I copied in my first post.

    I think the problem might be that you are running 8.1 with activation left over from 8.0.
    You might need to slmgr /rearm, reboot, and re-try your activation with MTK.

    Could you please explain it a bit further as I am not very well-versed in technical issues.

    Do as Murph suggested;

    1. From administrator command prompt, type: slmgr /rearm ...and press Enter.
    2. Reboot your system
    3. Try to activate again with Microsoft Toolkit

    The "activator" might have done something funny. :popcorn:

    It was activated, and not upgraded by the activator. I didn't say it correctly earlier.

    I hope there is a way to activate my Windows 8.1. I have lots of programmes loaded on the machine, cannot reinstall Windows at this stage.

    I seem to remember data invalid when system is blocking the secohook.
    Try going into MTK settings and changing it to TAP adapter

    I got Windows 8 with the machine which I later upgraded to 8.1 and activated it with an application which I lost yesterday. But even that wasn't working last night, though it was able to activate MS Word 2013.

    I had bought a used machine which had Windows 7 installed by HP. On my insistence, the seller removed Windows 7 and installed Windows 8 Pro on the machine but did not activate it. I then activated the installation with an activator and upgraded it to 8.1 Pro. The activation was good for 180 days, to be expired on 26th of this month. But now as Murph and you suggested, I 'rearmed' it with "slmgr /rearm" command and now it is an unactivated installation.
