Windows 8 deactivates when offline I backed up my spp folder manually and with ATM. After I clean installed Windows 8 ProWMC x64, I restored activation with ATM. Every time I go offline (disable adapter or unplug Ethernet), after several seconds, Windows 8 becomes deactivated. When I reconnect to the Internet, after several seconds, Windows 8 becomes activated again. Every time that it reactivates, my activation date changes to today's date. For example, my activation date is now 2013-01-12. I have tried reactivating online a few times, but it says that the key has exceeded the limit of activations and that the key was used by another computer (untrue, still same computer). Then, I restored activation again with ATM. Although it is currently activated, it still remains activated only when online. My data.dat is KMS + Full retail + ProWMC x64. ProWMC was phone activated offline.
