Windows 8 en Server 2012 KMS Service Activation

For Licensing and Windows 8 on a R2 you need to the Service.

Install the following update: An is available for and Windows 2008 R2 hosts to support Windows 8 and Windows as described in KB2691586.
If you don’t install this hotfix registering a Windows 2012 will throw an Error: 0xC004F050 The Software Licensing Service reported that the product key is invalid

So request the hotfix and install it. Just follow the instructions and you’ll be fine clip_image001

We can start putting our brand new key into action.

Uninstall the current key using slmgr.vbs /upk clip_image002


Now you can install the new key. The key listed here is obviously a demo one clip_image002[1]If you run in to any here, restarting the Service can help. Try that first.



Now activate your brandnew key slmgr.vbs /ato

We run slmgr.vbs /dlv again and as you can see now we can activate all our Windows 201 servers and Windows 8 computers
