How to Activate Windows with KMSPico (Video)

Here is a simple explanation video created by the KMSPico development team to help you with the installation and activation on a Windows 10 machine. The same method can be used for Windows 11 and other Windows versions as well.

KMSPico Activation Process on a Windows 10 PC

What is KMSPico?

KMSPico is a tool developed by TeamDaz (also known as Daz) to emulate the original Microsoft product activation server known as KMS. This “Key Management Server” is a built-in service in every version of Windows released after 2006. Upto today, Microsoft uses the same technology to verify the authenticity of the license key of someone’s PC. KMSPico took the advantage of this to create its own KMS Server to bypass the Windows Genuine Validation check and keep the product activated without using a real license key. This is pretty neat and mind-blowing compared to other Microsoft windows activators available.

What is KMSPico

How KMSPico works?

To understand the way how KMSPico works, you need to have a basic idea of Microsoft’s software licensing system.

Not only Microsoft but all big software companies use a web-based software licensing server to verify and validate consumer product activations. Microsoft uses its in-house developed server named “Key Management Service” to do these product activations in real-time. What KMSPico does is replace these original KMS servers with their own so you no longer need a unique retail product key to activate Windows. After this change is successfully applied to your system files, KMSPico uses volume license keys issued for company organisations to make your activation permanent. The entire process is done with a click of a button and all you have to do is wait for the success message!

Is KMSPico Safe?

You may wonder if KMSPico can harm your computer with malware or viruses. But don’t worry, if you get the tool from a reliable source, like the official KMSPico website or a well-known download site, you should be safe from malware. The best thing to note is we have not received any complaints about our activator over the past 15 years.

    My Win10 is already (officially) activated.
    Can I use KMSPico for Office 2013 professional only, leaving my existing, activated Win10 key being untouched?

    • Kevin February 24, 2020, 8:15 am

      Hi, Once you run the KMSPico, it automatically detects the activated windows and it won’t be affected.

  • markovski May 31, 2019, 3:26 pm

    hello i have a question, my kms pico previously got deleted by the win defender, and now its shows that my windows will expire soon within next month (june 14th). So, do i need to re-apply the activation using this kms pico or is there any other way around to solve this? Thanks

    • Kevin May 31, 2019, 7:09 pm

      Hi, You have to disable Windows Defender before running the KMSPico. This will solve the issue.

      • markovski June 1, 2019, 12:23 pm

        Thank you for your reply. Before using the kms, should I remove the license key first using /upk in cmd or just simply use the kms right away (before the expiration date)?

  • Kevin March 15, 2019, 3:32 pm

    Maybe your virus guard is preventing kmspico to extract. Try disabling your antivirus protection.

  • Clement March 2, 2019, 8:40 am

    Does it require the machine to be connected to the internet for KMSPico 10.2.1 to successfully activate my office 2013

    • Kevin March 15, 2019, 3:32 pm

      Office 2013 and earlier versions can be activated offline.

  • Anonymous February 28, 2018, 11:10 pm

    Thank you, this works a treat. Got my windows 10 enterprise fully registered. Thanks for the great work.

  • Billy January 10, 2018, 7:20 am

    • Kevin January 10, 2018, 8:29 am

      Hi Billy, Yes. It completely activates windows and you won’t see those messages again 🙂

  • nagasai July 29, 2017, 3:02 pm

      Hi Zack, Yes. It’s tested and confirmed to work with Windows 10 Pro 64bit.

  • Phil May 12, 2016, 8:07 pm

    Why is it prompting me to burn kmspico to a dvd instead of automatically running as your instructions describe?

    • Kevin May 22, 2016, 6:46 pm

      Hi, The .ISO image can be opened by Windows just like a ZIP file. Do you have any DVD burning software installed on your PC?

  • Sckhar August 1, 2015, 2:44 am


    Is this working for the latest version of Windows 10 Pro already?

    • Kevin August 3, 2015, 6:50 pm

  • drewski September 8, 2014, 10:58 pm

    Hi Kevin,

    1st: I’m finding a lot of windows 8.1 pro cracked. but most of them have some kind of cliche. Is there a windows 8.1 pro o/s that you recommend that works perfect with KMSPico? if so, can you send me a link.

    2nd: windows 9 will be coming out at the end of this month and i was wonder on how soon it will take the Daz Team to conquer this verison?

    3rd: When windows 9 does come out; is it possible for your team to create a “Special Edition” of KMSPico with windows 9 / ms office 2013-14 all in one small package to download?

    -Drewski 🙂

  • Bob Whiite August 27, 2014, 8:16 am

  • Tan August 20, 2014, 11:40 pm

    Thanks a ton for this amazing tool! Saves a lot of money for so many people over the globe!!
    Two questions:
    Is it safe to download any Microsoft Office updates after using KMSpico? I have Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013.

    Secondly, some sites say it can cause changes in the system files. I had cracked my Office once before with a friend’s help (I don’t know what technique he used) and after a few weeks, my genuine copy of Windows 8 suddenly went into Trial Version mode and kept saying that my license would expire soon and even KMSpico couldn’t reactivate it (since it was a genuine copy), so I had to format my PC. Will KMSpico ever cause such changes in my OS?
    Thanks in advance!

  • Cobus August 19, 2014, 10:08 am


    I tried installing your software but it aborts the installation with the following message… network error encountered, aborting installation.

    My anti virus was turned off before trying, even disabled my firewall temporarily.

    Help please.

  • Pan August 17, 2014, 6:22 pm

    Hi, thank you!

  • pjottr August 17, 2014, 12:10 pm

    I used the tool to activate Office 2013 Earlier was stated,that one needs to keep this tool installed But that was in relation of activating the OS
    Do I need to keep the tool also if I only used it to activate Office 2013?

  • Sanjay August 16, 2014, 1:42 pm

    Hi guys, Before downloading i want to know that my pc is windows 7 (ultimate) and i wanna install microsoft office 13 and visual studio 13 using kmspico. Please can you tell that this can work….

    • Kevin August 17, 2014, 8:48 am

  • Kenith August 1, 2014, 8:42 pm

    I totally love this program, the only thing I don’t like about it is the sound effects. Is there a way to disable them and if not, could you please add an option/disable them completely. I find them pretty annoying.

    And as many others have said, you need to develop a version for upcoming Windows 9 too.

    • Kevin August 12, 2014, 9:06 am

      Hi Kenith, We will add an option to disable sound effects. 😀 Thanks for the motivation!

  • Cardell July 29, 2014, 2:37 am

    Is it possible to activate only Office through KMSPico, considering I already own a registered version of Windows 8/8.1?

    The reason for my question is because when I crack Office through KMSPico, it automatically cracks Windows too, so I can’t update it (i.e. I can’t update it from Windows 8 to 8.1, but I can do the basic updates available on Windows Updater)

    • Kevin July 29, 2014, 9:48 am

      Hey Cardell, The latest version of KMSPico scan and detect already activated products and skip them automatically. So no need to worry about existing licensed softwares. 🙂

  • Alonso July 23, 2014, 3:33 am

    I send a comment just to say thanks! This tool works for me anytime on Windows 8/8.1 both and Office 2010/2013 activation. Thanks KMSpico Team for develop possibilitys to inpossibilitys people!

  • Mattia July 22, 2014, 4:17 pm

    I tried to download KMSPico, but if I click on the green button it doesn’t happen anything. Same if I click on the link in the description.
    Isn’t it available anymore?

    • Kevin July 26, 2014, 3:38 pm

      Hey, Did you try disabling your Antivirus software? Some antivirus software wont allow it to download or execute.

  • Ivan July 21, 2014, 12:45 pm

    can this kms pico activate the windows 8.1 enterprise evaluation for 90 days
    to full version

  • Evan wildenhain July 21, 2014, 4:12 am

    Hi, I am buying a laptop with no OS, but I have a disk for 8.1 pro. Will this be able to activate the non-activated disk?

  • Pietro July 16, 2014, 9:36 pm

    I’m using Office 365, and I’d like to activate it. I was using it just nice, but since today it crashed, I don’t know if it updated or something, but now I can’t save any docs. I’ve download the last KMSpico version from here, but nothing happened.

    • Kevin July 17, 2014, 1:29 am

      Using KMSPico on a crashed install will not help. First try to re-install Office and then use our tool to activate.

  • mwansa m July 16, 2014, 6:39 pm

      Yes, you can activate your current version with KMSPico and upgrade to the newest Windows version.

    Hi, Glad you found our little tool useful. You need to keep it installed to keep windows genuine.

      Hi Beelz,

      It’s a permanent activation patch. Also you’re safe to use windows update as well. Hope it answers your question.
