Over the years, Microsoft has found adequate ways to deal with illegal Windows activations and improve support for users with purchased licenses. However, there is room for surprise, and it seems that the “dark arts” for “hacking” a desktop operating system haven’t gone far. Moreover, they are not far from Microsoft itself.

He was a programmer and content creator Wesley Pyburn, who shared information about Microsoft support in South Africa after asking for help activating his $200 Windows 10 Pro license from the official Microsoft store. A technology firm representative decided to use an OS crack to activate the product.

“My official Windows 10 Pro key from the Microsoft Store did not activate. The support team couldn’t help me yesterday. Raised today. Official Microsoft Support (not a scam) logged in with Quick Assist and ran a command to activate Windows” shared Pyburn on his Twitter account.

According to the YouTuber, Microsoft support initiated the activation process remotely by running a command from PowerShell on the user’s PC that connects to “massgrave.dev”, an unofficial repository of scripts that are not normally detected by antivirus systems and can activate Windows and Office services, including .

How to activate the official Microsoft license?

Microsoft typically uses a DRM-enabled activation process, a digital rights system widely used in streaming, and license activation that ties a purchase to a specific account. For official activation, a 25-digit key is required, the same one that is sent to the user after a digital purchase and is automatically associated with their Microsoft account.

Windows 11 is the current version of the Microsoft OS.

With the activation of this license, the user can log in with his PC account without restrictions and access all the functions of the operating system, even if he changes computers or requires a reset after changing components or disks.

However, due to the complexity of the activation processes for this license, users may contact their local Microsoft support to complete this procedure over the phone. On the Microsoft website, for example, only 0 800 51 900 is set for Peru as the volume activation phone system.
