Windows 8

Activation

Windows 8 does not have the Activation Wizard Enabled - Below there are two work arounds

Method 1 - Use slui to bring up an activation prompt

    • Open an MSDOS command prompt using Right CLick "Run As Administrator"
    • slui.exe 3 (you wil be prompted for an Activation Key)
    • Notes:
      • SLUI 1 - brings up the activation status window
      • SLUI 2 - brings up the activation window
      • SLUI 3 - brings up the CHANGE PRODUCT KEY window
      • SLUI 4 - brings up the CALL MICROSOFT & MANUALLY ACTIVATE

Method 2 - Use slmgr to Enable the Activation Wizard

    • Open an MSDOS command prompt using Right CLick "Run As Administrator"
    • Run this command: slmgr.vbs /ipk "WINDOWS PRODUCT KEY GOES HERE"
