Webstore, Error Activating Windows from the Campus Agreement
When activating Windows from the Campus Agreement, I get an error "0xC004F074 The Software Licensing Service reported that the computer could not be activated. The Key Management Service (KMS) is unavailable".
Applies to Office and Windows for University owned computers manual KMS activation.
To activate Windows or Office successfully you must:
Be connected to the campus network or the campus VPN with the TunneAll setting if you are off campus or connected to the campus WIFI.
Right click on the activation file and choose Run as Administrator.
Last, check to be sure your computers Date, Time AM/PM, and Time Zone are set correctly. The error can be caused by your system clock being too far off from the server's.
If you still cannot activate your software email WebStore the name of your computer and the approximate time you tried to activate last.
