I have installed and activated - W 8.1 x86 Retail Key

 

I installed Office 2013 volume edition on W8.1

 

When I use Microsoft Toolkit.2.4.8 for Office 2013 Volume activation, it crashes....

 

So is it conflict between

 

OS - w8.1 being Retail version

 

and

 

Office 2013 being Volume version

 

OR

 

any other reason?

For all members "If you edit a post to say "Deleted" (or ask the mods to delete), this is really unhelpful.

The mods will not do anything with this. Using the "Report" button is more helpful for us" Thanks

Windows 8.1 uses KMS protocol v6, which is currently unsupported by Microsoft Toolkit and has yet to be successfully cracked and emulated. Windows 8 uses KMS protocol v5, which is currently supported by Microsoft Toolkit. Microsoft Office 2013 VL uses whichever KMS protocol the operating system is using. Because you are using Windows 8.1, Microsoft Office 2013 is also using KMS v6, which is currently unsupported.

 

You are going to have to wait for a solution to KMS protocol v6 (could be weeks, months, years, or never), use the solution above, buy Office 2013, or downgrade to Office 2010 (which uses KMS v4 no matter what the OS is).

 

Edit: With regard to how long it might take to reverse-engineer KMS protocol v6, it took around 6 months to reverse engineer KMS protocol v5. It might be that KMS v6 is so similar to KMS v5 that it will be reverse-engineered much earlier. It also might be that new security measures will make it more difficult to reverse-engineer. Only time will tell.

You don't seem to understand how KMS emulation works or the difference between KMS emulation and other forms of KMS activation. I sent you a PM correcting your misinformation. What I posted pertaining to Microsoft Toolkit is accurate.

I have a 2.4.9 build that fixes the crash, but have not released it yet.

 

It crashes due to the KMS Server code someone at MDL (jm287) made for .NET throwing an Exception when it gets KMS V6.

 

I fixed this and will make 8.1 License Backups possible. Restore would be untested, but the option to at least make the Backup would be there.

 

The new build will not activate anything but Office 2010 (not 2013), when dealing with Windows 8.1 (because Office 2013 marries itself to Windows 8.X, but 2010 uses OSPPSVC, independent licensing).

 

It is likely someone will dump a KMS Server VM like last time, because MS is making MAK/CSVLK available slowly (I am not aware of any leaking).

 As far as i am aware backup and restore function disable with Microsoft Toolkit since the compatible version of Windows 8.
