    I am using windows 7 and i have downloaded this torrent.

    en_windows_8_x64_dvd_915440

    I saw there is an activator inside this folder.
    KMSNano 20.1

    How does it work?
    Does it connect with any server to activate windows?
    Is it connect only once or everytime when the system loads?

    I found it will activate windows for only 6 months.

    Thanks!

    KMSnano is an offline activator.

    You are strongly encouraged to use an up-to-date solution like MTK 2.4.9 or KMSPico. Find them in the MDL projects or Windows 8 sticky threads.

    I will search in torrent for MTK 2.4.9
    If you have any torrent link please let me know.

    I don't clearly understand "offline activator".
    And the thread says, it is not possible to use any KMS in windows 8.1
    Can i upgrade to 8.1 from windows 8 or not?

    no you cannot use kms with 8.1 yet. still being worked on.
    You can upgrade, but 8.1 will still not have kms activation, you would need a genuine key.

    I mean, i install windows 8 and apply the KMS Activation.
    Then i will go for the update of 8.1. Will it break the KMS Activation?

    You can't update to 8.1 via the store with a KMS-activated version of Windows. You simply don't see the update there. At least, that's the way it is in my case (Windows 8 Pro).

    Code:
    • Go here
    • Download both the 8.0 and 8.1 installers
    • Launch the 8.0 installer [Windows8-Setup.exe]
    • Enter your key for 8.0 and begin downloading
    • Immediately pause your download at 1% (don't quit at the estimating time screen), then exit
    • Launch your 8.1 installer [WindowsSetupBox.exe]
    • You'll get an error saying element can't be found or something like that, you're ok - just close out
    • Re-launch WindowsSetupBox.exe
    • ???
    • You're downloading 8.1
    If i can download 8.1 from this method, Can i install it without any problem?

    Windows Toolkit 2.4.9

    I opened it and clicked the windows icon.
    I clicked the activation tab and clicked the activate button.

    Is that enough?
    Is there anything else to do?
    Is Windows Toolkit also an offline activator?

    Edit

    I found install button under autokms. Do i need to install it?
    I have just clicked the activate button only so far.

    Thanks for all the helps!

    yes, I already read that.
    There are so many options there.

    For me, it is difficult even though you have made it very simple.
    Has it already activated my system? please tell me

    Or do i need to install autokms?

    Also, Where is the readme file?
    There is only one file in the torrent which you gave me

    Pressing Activate one time activates Windows 8.0 Pro for 180 days (Windows 8.0 Core for 30 days). You can either repeat that step manually after some time, or install AutoKMS, which will do it for you. Note you will have to exclude the AutoKMS file from your AV.
