Part 1. About Windows 10 Activation

Activation is the mechanism that prevents unauthorized copy and usage in Windows. There are many reasons you may reinstall the system and lost all the activation information of Windows. But if you just forget the login password of your Windows computer, you can reset Windows 10 password without damaging data inside. If you continue to use the device that Microsoft Software License is not applied, you will not get all the features in Windows 10. The following features may be restricted if you are not using an activated Windows 10 version:
Watermark at the right-bottom of the screen asking for an activation

windows notify to active the system

Frequent pop-up notification for activation

windows license will expire in days

Unable to change the wallpaper, the theme and many other personalization settings

Unable to update the system

If the system is unable to be updated, bugs cannot be fixed in time. That will cause unstable system performance with hidden risks. Sometimes, Windows will add new functions or features through the updates. That is to say, update is very important.

Unable to use some functions and Microsoft services

If you are using a inactive Windows 10 version, you are unable to use the Microsoft online services, such as One Drive, Xbox Live, and you cannot use the Windows App Store, either.

Therefore, you should activate Windows if you hope to use all system functions without any limitation. Official product keys, activation software or some methods may help you activate Windows.

As you pass through the Windows activation, you will become an authorized user under Windows system protection. Otherwise, the system may easily go wrong. Unless for some reasons, it is suggested that you should activate the Windows system. The followings are about how to crack Windows 10 activation for free.

2. Crack Windows Activation via KMS

(1) What is KMS

As Windows XP was prevalent, the best way to install an activation-free system is to download the two system versions, MSDN and VOL. These versions are key-free and activation-free. You can get a free and genuine Windows system through running scripts. Why? Because, MSDN — Microsoft Developer Network is the portion of Microsoft for their developers and testers and VOL — Volume Licensing for Organizations serves for organizations and companies. Microsoft specifically get them free from activation. However, these versions have been leaked, which causes worldwide piracy. Facing with this problem, Microsoft has stopped publishing the VOL versions since Windows Vista, and replaced it with KMS – Key Management Services, which partly curbs piracy and the unauthorized actions.

(2) How KMS Works

Windows VL is designed for volume activation. Based on this point, KMS requires a KMS server which can provide an activation ID in continuous 180 days for users who connect with the same Local Area Network. Once the supported Windows system is installed, the computer will contact the KMS server and automatically activate the system. Since KMS activation is valid only for 180 days, computer must regularly connect to the KMS server in order to check and renew the activation. This way allows organizations and companies volume activation within specific range but also avoids illegal authorization. Once the user is beyond the server network, the activation sever cannot be connected again, then the activated version will expire over 180 days.

(3) How to Personally Apply KMS

Though KMS is designed for enterprise activation with the internal network, we can still utilize the existed KMS servers to keep the activation. Volunteers have built many KMS servers where you can get access with the Internet and activate the system. It is a convenient and safe way because the system can be re-activated automatically as you get access with the sever. KMS activation covers almost all version following Vista and automate the process quickly. You are not worried about the system expiration any more if you keep using the KMS protocol. Meanwhile, you don’t need to search product keys because the commonly-used, limitless GVLK encrypted keys utilized by KMS can quickly activate the system through the same activation process, no matter you are updating or installing the system.

(4) Instruction for KMS Cracked Script

You can run Command Prompt as administrator, and then use the following commands for KMS actication:
slmgr.vbs -upk#: clear the original product key
slmgr /ipk + KMS client setup key #: different editions have different GVLK product keys. If you need the key suitable for your system, please view the list below.
slmgr /skms + KMS server address: please view the list below for the KMS server name or internal IP.
slmgr /ato #: run the KMS activation
slmgr.vbs –dlv
People use the KMS server emulated by VLMCSD in C to build the simulate KMS server, then the server will cheat on the Windows 10 identification and pretend it as legal product key during activation. That is how KMS cracked script works.

(7) Risks in KMS Cracked Script

Technically speaking, the activation way has demerits. Your computer will become one members of the computer group and the developer of the KMS server is your administrator. This administrator has high authority so it can copy data in any member computer, even interrupt the computer performance. Therefore, it is suggested you build the KMS server by yourself, or choose a reliable KMS server when you want to crack Windows 10 via KMS scripts.

Part 3. Crack Windows Activation 10 via Third-Party Tool

(1) How to Work via KMSpico

Some activation tools, such as KMSTools, KMSpico and HEU KMS, collect KMS activation functions in the form of executable program, where Newbie can quickly finish the activation. We suggest you use KMSpico because it is developed by the KMS developers with more reliable functions. It can not only activate Windows systems but also Microsoft Office.

Part 3. Limitations of KMS

According to what is mentioned above, we all know that the KMS tools is free and safe. Different from the permanent product key, it provides the computer connecting to the KMS server with a alternative ID in only 180 days. Once the ID expires, you have to re-activate the computer. Worse, your activated system will stopped if the KMS server is invalid. Therefore, as the activation is finished, we suggest you use Renee Becca to back up all data as the system runs well, ensuring you won’t lose you data at any time.

Product features:

  • Efficient backup, up to 3,000MB/min.
  • Multiple backup modes, incremental backup and differential backup are also provided.
  • Disk, partition, files backup and recovery.
Renee Becca can backup files with short time, automatically distinguish data difference between the original files and the backup files, and support incremental backup and differential backup without any repeated one, which can save disk space.

Part 4. Why Windows cannot be Activated

With these mentioned methods, the system pops up the notification saying that Windows cannot be activated. You can refer to possible reasons and feasible solutions as follows.
Product key is invalid

If you have ever recovered or reinstalled the system, the product key may be invalid. Microsoft Software License Terms limits the times to use each product key for multiple computers. Once the product key which generates from a keygen or the other free ways, exceeds the limitation, it will be invalid. You should search for a new product key, or regularly backup your files to ensure the performance when the system goes wrong.

You don’t run the command prompt as Administrator

Some people may fail the activation when they crack Windows 10 activation through KMS because they don’t run the command prompt as Administrator. Please contact with the Administrator or create a new Administrator account.

Counterfeit software

If you have a counterfeit copy of Windows that wasn’t published or licensed by Microsoft, activation won’t work because Microsoft won’t be able to match your PC’s hardware profile with the 25-character product key. Therefore, you should use the clear, not repackaged MSDN version and avoid the premade versions, such as Ghost Installer.

Hardware changes

If you made substantial hardware changes to your PC, such as replacing your hard drive or motherboard, Windows might no longer be activated.

Part 5. Disclaimer: Legal Risk in Windows Crack

Globally, millions of people are using counterfeit Windows, especially those who live in developing countries with low economic level. It is noticed that using unofficial way to crack Windows activation is intellectual property infringement in all countries and regions.

In Japan, the laws on intellectual property have been well established, with rigorous punishment. The punishment criterion of individual piracy is over that of theft, with the maximum sentence of 15-year imprisonment and the maximum penalty of 10 million yen.

America values the intellectual property, too. According to United States Code, those who copy systems and software without authorization may bear civil or criminal liabilities. The civil lawsuit is involved with penalties in thousands of dollars whereas the severe criminal lawsuit means felony, with the maximum sentence of 5-year imprisonment and the maximum penalties of 250,000 dollars penalties.

China, one of the developing countries, lists the punishment for illegal software copy in Intellectual Property Law.

According to the history cases of the Microsoft legal department, it seldom take legal action against individual piracy. But it will safeguard its legal rights if organizations and companies use the counterfeit Windows in volume.

Using the counterfeit Windows is infringing Microsoft’s copyright and trademark. Individuals may fortunately escape the Microsoft lawsuit, but the right to seek legal accountability is reserved by Microsoft. It is suggested you use the genuine software as long as conditions allow.

Part 6. Summary

These are the common methods to crack Window 10 activation for free. Each has its own merits:

Activation via product key is easy, but it is hard to search for valid product keys, easy to get invalid;

Activation via KMS activation is safe while it has time limitation. You also need to search for a built KMS server;

Using an activation software is convenient and quick while it risks in virus attack. Buying a permanent product key can help you free from all these troubles!
