  1. Switching from KMS license to private License without administrator rights


    When leaving my employeer i got to keep my Laptop. Now i can´t get the Windows license renewed from the Companies KMS Server. Many of the solutions described on the www require Administrator rights which i do not have. What is the best way to keep Windows functioning? I do prefer a solution which dos not requiere me to reinstall a new windows which would mean having to set all programs etc. up from scratch.

    Thanks for your help

    :)

    kms license expiring - what to do and what will happen?

    Hi there

    I'm surprised your Windows AV software or Windows defender didn't flag some part of KMS as possibly dangerous malware etc -- kms activation is routinely used with Pirate copies of Windows / Office usually downloaded from those notorious torrent sites.

    Usually KMS activators will have something like hacktool.gen in it.

    As soon as you mentioned KMS I suspect the original software wasn't licensed legally. If you bought it from a recognised retailer complain - and to Microsoft.

    If you bought privately -- unfortunately "Caveat Emptor" applies in this case so you'll just have to get a legit license.

    This Forum (absolutely correctly) takes a very dim view of any Pirate software (or in fact of any Pirate content) and it's against the rules to help people on using or obtaining such software or content.

    Cheers
    jimbo
