    KMS not activating Windows 7

    Hi All,

    This has been puzzling me for a while and I知 sure I知 missing something really simple! I set up my KMS on a server 2008 r2 machine, as I added new server 2008 r2 machines it activated them fine via KMS. But now I知 adding Windows 7 machines they don稚 activate! Office 2010 activates no problem. I can see in the event viewer the new Windows 7 machines are commutating with KMS but no activation. Any ideas what I知 doing wrong?

    Thank you

    How many machines? Windows 7 KMS has a minimum count of attempted activations before it will actually activate. I think it is about 20?

    Windows 7 KMS needs 25 activations. Try this website for help:
