What is KMS-Auto and How to Use It?
KMS-Auto is a software tool that can activate Windows and Office products without a license key. It works by creating a virtual server on your PC and replacing the official developer site with a fake one. This way, the software thinks that it is activated and removes the lock and the countdown that prompts you to buy a license.
KMS-Auto is useful for users who have installed Windows or Office without a license or who want to extend their trial period. It can activate various versions of Windows (from Vista to 11) and Office (from 2010 to 2021). However, it is not a legal way to use Microsoft products and it may be detected and blocked by antivirus programs or updates.
To use KMS-Auto, you need to download it from a reliable source and run it as an administrator. Then you need to check the “Activate Windows” or “Activate Office” box and click on the “Activation” button. The program will start the activation process automatically and show you a message when it is done. You can also use the “Settings” tab to change some options, such as the activation mode, the language, or the backup.
How Does KMS-Auto Work?
KMS-Auto works by using a technology called Key Management Service (KMS), which is a feature of Microsoft products that allows large organizations to activate multiple devices with a single license key. KMS requires a server that periodically communicates with the devices and verifies their activation status. If the server does not receive a response from a device within a certain time, it deactivates it.
KMS-Auto mimics this process by creating a virtual KMS server on your PC and registering it as the official one. Then it sends fake activation requests to the server and receives fake responses that confirm the activation. This way, the software thinks that it is connected to a real KMS server and remains activated.
KMS-Auto can activate Windows and Office products for 180 days. After this period, it needs to renew the activation by repeating the same process. However, this happens automatically and you don’t need to do anything. You can also check the activation status and the remaining days by using the “Information” tab of the program.
