3 Methods to get a free Windows 7 license

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on

Even though Windows Seven is a 7-year-old operating system, proportion of population who use it remains relatively high. Personally, I think Windows 7 interface is elegant and user-friendly. Its boot screen really makes me impressed. It is true that Windows 7 is still a good choice at the moment. Microsoft announced that they will continue supporting it till 2020. So you can keep your mind on using your computer for at least 3 years.

In today’s post, I will show you how to activate all versions of Windows 7 permanently without paying a dime. There are currently three ways to get a free license: first, by phone, which is the best way; second, by using KMS client setup keys, which is easiest; and third, by using activator tool. Honestly, I do not recommend the third way because Windows 7 Activator tool is often suspected of hacking tools by antivirus programs. If you don’t feel safe to use it, please try the first method. The following are the detailed instructions for activating Windows 7.

Method 1: By phone

This method is fully legal but it depends on the number of remaining activations on a MAK.

NOTE: If you see one of the notices below, please try another license key.
1. “Unfortunately, we cannot complete this transaction as our records do not recognize this as a valid product. You may be able to return the software to your reseller for a new product.
Thank you for contacting Microsoft, goodbye.”
2. “Your Microsoft Product has exceeded the set number of activations. No additional activations can be provided on this product key. Customers with volume license agreements should notify their IT Administrator or IT Professional about this error message.
Thank you for contacting Microsoft, goodbye.”
3. “Let’s get you to one of our Answer Desk agents for help.
I was not able to validate your installation ID. Please have the Activation window up on your computer screen, so you can have this number handy. The representative will need this number to help with activating your product.”

Method 2: KMS client setup keys

This one is not recommend anymore due to the new update of Microsoft.

Strengths of this method are 100 percent success rate and ease in implementation. However, it supports Windows 7 Pro / Enterprise only. That is why I have encouraged people to install Professional edition instead of the others. Please watch the video below for more details.

Method 3: Windows 7 Activator tool (not recommended)

Here is the latest VirusTotal scan result for this tool: https://virustotal.com/en/file/2f2aba1e074f5f4baa08b524875461889f8f04d4ffc43972ac212e286022ab94/analysis/.

Step 1: Download the Windows 7 Loader tool here (password nextlevel).

Step 2: Extract files from the archive and run the tool as administrator.

Step 3: Click Install button and wait…
