    Hi,

    Can we discuss on the activation procedure for Windows 7 Enterprise Edition (W7EE)? I know the bunch of loaders, keys and certs that are available for Windows Ultimate, but will they work to get the Enterprise Edition activated "Permanently"?

    Also, I know there is a Eval Key available for W7EE which activates the product for 90 days with 5 rearms (totaling some 450 days). But this leave a watermark on the desktop about the validity :mad:

    Is there any tool that will activate W7EE once and for all?

    PS: The Key present in the Batch Script provided by yaluza1967 seems to be blocked by the KMS Servers :(

    Thanks. I appreciate it. MAK - I believe you are talking about the "Multiple Activation Keys". Can you please elaborate on this one by clarifying below queries:

    1. Where these keys can be found?

    2. How to apply these keys? (Directly in Computer -> Properties screen or via slmgr tool?)

    3. Does it involve any online activation?

    1. In your Microsoft Volume Licensing account. :)
    2. Either way you like.
    3. Identical behavior to retail keys, require online activation.

    Most hassle-free method for Enterprise is a KMS server, once you have one up and running, but you need to have access to it indefinitely or the activation will expire in 180 days.

    The total days for the Enterprise Eval is 600
    When finished installation you have a 10 days period to activate the Windows.
    When you activate them is for 90 days, so 100 days.
    Any time you rearm them(5 totally) it happen the same.
    10 days to activate them and 90 days activated
    So count them and you see that is 600 days:D

    They ll not change it.
    All the other versions have a limit 30 days to try and activate them, but with the 3 rearms you can use them without activate for 120 days.

    They wont change this.

    ReArm is a feature of Windows.

    (Introduced with Vista.)

    Only Chew-WGA/RemoveWAT will work on Enterprise. No OEM:SLP keys avaliable for enterprise. You can swap the tokens.dat though, and use a loader if you want.
