Windows 7: Product Activation using VAMT 2.0

17 May 2010   #1

Product Activation using VAMT 2.0

Last week we blogged about how the newly released Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) 2.0 helps manage product keys. This week, we cover how VAMT can help you centrally manage Windows 7 activations. VAMT 2.0 also manages activations for Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Office 2010 client suites and applications, Visio 2010 and Project 2010.

You can perform KMS, MAK and retail activations on remotely managed systems, all from a single VAMT console. The process is simple; VAMT first discovers the computers and installed products. Then, the product key is installed for the target systems to be activated.

VAMT uses two primary activation methods: 1) online activation, where each computer connects to and activates with the Microsoft activation service, and 2) proxy activation, where the VAMT console connects to Microsoft on behalf of remotely managed systems.

These processes are detailed in Product Activation Using VAMT 2.0, or you can download the document.

Activation / Change Product Key
I have installed Windows 7 onto a couple of work PCs. Valid licenses by the way. Both PCs show that Windows is activated, but there is the option to change the Product Key. Does this mean that the licenses aren't fully validated if this option is available? Thanks, DN
