[How To]Change Windows 8 Product Key To Complete Activation

Microsoft will be releasing its full version of Windows 8 on October 26th, 2012….. But before that few days ago it has already released the RTM version of Windows 8. Which brought excitement on me too so at a once I have decided to get in Windows 8 RTM of enterprise version as my TechNet Subscription does not have right to get download of windows 8 Pro. I installed Windows 8 RTM on my machine but it never asked me any product key to get register… I thought as I have downloaded it from my TechNet Subscription this might have auto activation procedure. But as I went to my PC setting I saw that there alert to get my PC activated…


So I tried to get activate my windows my using the normal activation process… I couldn’t get success so hence I use the next method of activating my windows 8 Enterprise by using Command line. I went to search and RUN the CMD with Administrative privilege and then use the command line


Using the Command line “slmgr.vbs -ipk YOUR-PRODUCT-KEY”.

Command line “slmgr.vbs -ato”

I hope this procedure have activated your Windows 8 Enterprise RTM.
