Activating Windows 7 without a Product Key

To activate Windows 7 without a product key, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Start menu and search for Notepad. Right-click on Notepad and select Run as administrator.

  2. Copy the following code and paste it into Notepad:

@echo off
set slmgr.vbs=%windir%\system32\slmgr.vbs
cscript //nologo %slmgr.vbs% /upk
cscript //nologo %slmgr.vbs% /cpky
cscript //nologo %slmgr.vbs% /rilc
cscript //nologo %slmgr.vbs% /rearm
echo Windows 7 activation script processed successfully.
  1. Click File > Save As and choose a location to save the file. Name the file as activate_windows7.bat and change the Save as type to All Files (*.*).

  2. Navigate to the location where you saved the file, right-click on it, and select Run as administrator.

  3. A Command Prompt window will open, and the script will start running. After the script has finished processing, you will see a message saying “Windows 7 activation script processed successfully.” Press Enter to close the Command Prompt window.

  4. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

After following these steps, your Windows 7 should now be activated without the need for a product key. However, this method is not foolproof and may not work in all cases. If you encounter any issues, consider purchasing a genuine Windows 7 product key or upgrading to a newer version of Windows.


While it’s possible to activate Windows 7 without a product key, it’s essential to understand that this is not a permanent solution, and we strongly recommend purchasing a genuine product key. This ensures that you receive official support, updates, and security patches from Microsoft, keeping your computer safe and up-to-date.
