    Folks,

    As the title says, Is it possible to upgrade from Windows 8.1 Pro VL to Windows 8.1 ProWMC VL? If that can be done we would require 8.1 ProWMC VL MAK / KMS Key right? Please explain.

    Thanks

    No WMC for Pro VL version, only for Pro Retail ;)

    Then why everyone is after Windows 8.1 Pro VL? There is no point in using Pro VL right? Only because of KMS / MAK Activation. What's the point of being a Pro VL User and unable to use the WMC.

    Thanks

    Yes I think so but there is no way to activate with MTK actually, except if you find a MAK key. :D

    Well that's what i am saying. The VLSC Enterprise Customers may have a MAK / KMS key, but what's the point of having Pro VL 8.1 if you are not allowed to upgrade / add WMC as a addon. Unlike the retail users?

    Just create a ProVL WMC disc, then do a clean reinstall (upgrade not possible), when KMS 6 is online, use the command prompt to activate or use MTK? The ony difference will be 45 days for wmc vs the 180 days kms for provl?

    It is just Windows 8.1 Pro VL it doesn't include WMC. That's why i have created this thread but everybody is suggesting to create Windows 8.1 ProWMC Retail Disc. Actually i don't need to create any disc, i have MAK / KMS key for 8.1 Pro VL all i want to know is - is it possible to have Windows 8.1 ProWMC VL after installing Windows 8.1 Pro VL.

    PS - I don't need any KMS 6 or MTK etc..,

    Thanks

    How likely VL customer (some Win 8.x workstation in some office) is to use WMC?

    Do you expect secretary to suddenly drop Word/Outlook (or whatever they use) & instead start WMC (to watch last night Dexter?)

    LOL at your words sebus :)

    Not all Enterprise customers are in the office, for example like me who is working from Home :) So i was asking is there anyway to do it. Dear elzna replied it can be created but i need to know some "dism" commands. But I am still looking for untouched solution. Let's see if anyone can come up with.

    Thanks

    VL editions of Core/CoreSL/CoreCS/ProWMC aren't officially exist. Though licenses & GVLK of them exist, they can't be activated using real KMS server. A KMS emulator doesn't check client side Edition ID and thus it can activate them. But the grace period isn't same as normal KMS products.

    Forget it you just don't get it. Not available to VL customers it is not even available to download from MSDN or Technet. Normally home user would use pro retail not pro vl or enterprise.
