It is rather expensive sometimes to purchase a Windows license. Therefore, some users prefer to trust third-party developers and utilize all sorts of activators to obtain a license key. There were so many activators of various properties for Windows 7. However, situation with Windows 10 is more complicated. Among the utilities that can provide a license key for Windows 10, the most secure ones are activators based on the KMS engine.
What are these KMS activators?
These applications add a randomly generated key to the operating system. TAP drivers are used for this purpose. This method of activation is «almost official», as there is no manipulation of the system files. The activators, based on the CMS engine are such applications as KMSAuto Net, KMSpico, KMSAuto Lite, Easy KMSAuto, KMSAuto Helper, AAct Portable and set KMS Tools. The latter includes many activators and programs to search for the license key on the Network.
All of the above programs are considered the most secure among applications of this kind. Unlike such products as Windows Loader, activators do not remove system authentication or modify OS files. That is, the stability of operation is not affected.
This application for activation appeared first with the release of Windows 8 and has been constantly modifying since. The current version is capable of installing license keys for Windows 8, 8.1 and 10. You can also activate Microsoft Office products.
What editions does the activator-support? KMSAuto Net does an excellent job for activating Windows 10 Professional, VL, Home, Enterprise, and Education. As for Windows 8, the application copes successfully with all the revisions.

- Select the desired line and click «Change the OS edition» in the «change Windows edition” unit box. In a few seconds, the revision will be changed and you can repeat reactivation.
Therefore, it is possible to activate the products of Microsoft with KMSAuto Lite. Technically, this program does not support all editions of Windows. Nevertheless, with the built-in Converter, you can easily transform the wrong version into the «correct» one. Moreover, it is the main feature of this activator.
The simplest KMS-activator is Ratiborus. It goes from companions/associates. It is so simple that it does not even have a simple graphical user interface, but uses the MS-DOS console structure. Some keys carry out all controls. It is written in detail how to use every button of the program.
Activator copes with Windows 7, 8, 10 and Microsoft Office products beginning with 2007. Just look at the interface of the program, difficult to believe that it can do such things. All you need is just to know how to work with it.
- Product activation. It is the first and the main function of KMSAuto Easy. The program copes with this task perfectly. The application works well with the operating systems of all editions. There is also nothing to say about Office products, KMSAuto Easy just works well.
* Kms service installation. The activator can install and uninstall service of KMS-Service program separately from the installation process of the key. This allows you to get rid of the service if something went wrong and you decided to choose another activator.
- Validation. There is a separate button to pass Microsoft validation. This option is very useful for downloading updates from MS servers. It also adds «formality» to the system. However, this function is rarely used.
The appearance of the activator brings to mind the early 2000s and the dawn of computer technology.
The interface is designed in the best traditions of MS-DOS. The program has only one window, which is extremely convenient.
- Activation options are located under the numbers from 1 to 3. Just press the corresponding button and confirm the action. Number 1 is the activation of Windows, number 2 is Office activation, and the third one is activation of both at once.
- If you press the «R» button, you will see the basic information about the program and the developer.
- Pressing the «I» and «U» buttons will install or uninstall KMS-Service program.
How to use
Using the activator is easy. First, you need to download the archive from our website using a direct link and go to it using Windows Explorer. The archive contains two files.
- Select the file with the desired language (e.g. EN or RU) and right-click on it. Next, click on the item «Run as administrator».

That’s it. The process for Office activation is identical. Only instead of «1» just press «2» and confirm the action with «Enter».
One more activator based on the engine CMS is KMSAuto Helper. It differs from all the previous programs in its interface and the principle of its operation. KMSAuto Helper installs the license key into the system in the same way, but does it quite aggressively.
The activator can cope with Windows 7-10 operating systems, but it works only with VL editions. All the other editions are beyond its control. The activator can also work with Office 2007-2016 products. Moreover, the latest version has in-built support for MS Office 2019.

- Ability to use an alternative service. The activator uses KMS-Service for its tasks by default. However, if the process does not succeed, you can try switching to the AAct service. There is a corresponding item in the settings.
- Installation of keys for all products. This is the so-called batch activation. The program installs keys for all products that it finds on your computer. However, developers advise you to use this option carefully, as the consequences of failures are unknown.
The appearance of the utility is quite good. All controls are located conveniently. It is worth considering several tabs in more detail.
- The main window has the current activation information, product selection and control buttons. You can update the information, activate one of the products or just hide the window.

- Right – click on the executable file with the EXE extension and run the program as administrator. If you do not do so, it simply cannot work. However, it is dangerous to grant administrator privileges to the unverified programs. This can lead to sad consequences. The most unpleasant thing is that you can grab a bunch of malicious software.
- Go to the main window. Check and put a tick next to the product you want to install the license key with and click the appropriate button.
- The progress bar will be displayed at the bottom of the window. There is a special green band below. When it reaches the end, the activation is completed.

The graphical shell of the utility is quite modern. Everything is created in the best traditions of Windows 10. You got flat buttons and minimalism atmosphere.
The main program window consists of two main units: buttons and console. Except buttons, there are some elements of activation launch, information about the license status and a link to the program settings. The console is quite large. It reflects the whole process.
How to use it
Using this program is even easier than all the previous ones. Download it from our website following a direct link and go to the directory of the utility.

- The ability to obtain a real license. Such programs as Garbage Collector are looking for some official license keys on the Net. This means that the user can get a fully official license if the utility finds the corresponding key on the Internet.
In fact, KMS tools Portable is just a shell. It allows you to run the activators and not produce their search in the folders on the hard disk. The main window of the program looks like a list of utilities available to run.
There is a list of programs and window controls. That is the whole interface. All the rest of the design will refer only to a specific activator. First, it must be selected.
