    I have a set of Tokens.dat & Data.dat that can activate Windows 8 Pro just fine (Successfully tested earlier on Windows 8 Pro). I was wondering if these same tokens will be able to do the same for Windows 8.1?

    Tried it and do not work. Yet you can try upgrading W8 to W8.1 via Store.

    You cannot use the Windows 8 tokens on Windows 8.1. The license files integrated into the Tokens.dat file do not match up with those being used by the operating system.

    Also you will probably mess up the licensing state of the OS while trying to do this.
