The Difference between a Loader and KMS Activation

A Loader, like that written by Daz for Windows 7, is a stand-alone program that can be used to activate Windows 7.

To activate Windows 8 you either need a valid license or you can activate it by means of a KMS (Key Management Service) server. A KMS server is often the method that OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) activate their copies of Windows on their retail products. The KMS server will supply the appropriate serial (Key) from a database of approved manufacturers and equipment.

To access a KMS server you will need a server access program. Running this program with the appropriate parameters will activate your copy of Window 8. You need to supply the equipment manufacturer and version of Windows 8 and the server will then supply the key and activate your copy of Windows as if it were a copy supplied directly from that manufacturer.
