Windows Loader has always worked for me.

why do you need to activate it?

Need to work sometime on Windows 7, so I have installed Windows 7 Basic Home, and it keeps nagging every now and then of "Window not Genuine".

Personally, I prefer to use a modified VM BIOS/EFI with a SLIC table, or just pass through the real SLIC if the physical BIOS has it (or it has been 'added'). Then use the available keys and certificates to activate 'for real'.

 

Modified BIOS: https://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/vmware-workstation-12-x-14-x-15-x-pro-player-slp-slic-bios-efi-mod.64693/

 

Pass through SLIC from physical BIOS:

Add the following lines to the VM's .vmx config file

acpi.passthru.slic = "TRUE"
acpi.passthru.slicvendor = "TRUE"
SMBIOS.reflecthost = "TRUE"

I found and reverted back to DAZ loader. So, far it's working with no issues at all.
