Advanced tokens manager 3

When you need to lớn bachồng up your Windows and Office 2010 activation, Advanced Tokens Manager is quichồng & efficient.

In the line of business I occupy, I giảm giá khuyến mãi with Windows licenses frequently, particularly in virtual machines and thử nghiệm hardware that I set up. Although activating a legitimate copy every time I go to lớn throw up a new container is not particularly arduous, I do fear activating a key one too many times & then having the key blacklisted. Bear in mind that I don"t have sầu the previous installation in this instance and I am starting completely anew, so I am not doing anything tacky with my license, like using the key on multiple live sầu installations at once. Unfortunately, Microsoft really isn"t going khổng lồ know if a key is only being used on one machine at a time or not.

Advanced Tokens Manager

· Product Information:

Product URL: Supported OS: Windows Vista, 7 và 8 (optionally Office 2010) Price: Free Rating: 4 out of 5 Bottom Line: When you need khổng lồ baông xã up your Windows and Office 2010 activation, this utility is quichồng and efficient. Just don"t expect to use this on Windows XPhường or older versions of Office.

Since I see myself as someone who doesn"t like lớn tempt fate with Microsoft customer service, I"ve called on Advanced Tokens Manager by Josh Cell Softwares to lớn save sầu the day. Basically, this utility does one thing và one thing only. It backs up your Windows license activation for safe-keeping so that you don"t have sầu to lớn make the dreaded call lớn Microsoft again. You can even vày the same process for Microsoft Office 2010 keys that are active sầu on your system if you like, for added convenience.

When you run a backup on the utility, it takes a snapshot of your tokens.dat file in Windows & creates a backup, ready to lớn be restored anytime you go to lớn rebuild the system. For those who are curious, the tokens.dat tệp tin contains all the Windows & Office activation information & it is digitally-signed.

This probably goes without saying, but if you change a significant part of your system và don"t back up your activation afterwards, you might still have to lớn call Microsoft in even after performing a restore. This is an obvious security measure from Microsoft, as anyone could just tóm tắt their tokens.dat backup with anyone và become fully activated at a moment"s notice & effectively stealing a copy of Windows or Office.

Advanced Tokens Manager essentially takes the place of a series of command-line operations that can be considered inconvenient to lớn less technically-savvy Windows users. Commands like slmgr and the like, can be a bit dicey and, even when you think you typed it in correctly, it still manages to throw up errors or not perform the intended operation during a restore. Even if you are an IT manager, it can still be more convenient lớn use this tool in lieu of an in-house script or a visit khổng lồ each machine khổng lồ persize backup và restore operations by h& via the command-line. At least this tool keeps the process easy.

Finally, it should be noted that this tool only supports Windows Vista & up; users of Windows XP as well as Office 2007 and older need not apply. Even though Windows XPhường & other older versions of Office might be nearing the end of their useful và supported lifespans, I still find it annoying that there is no real good way khổng lồ baông xã up the activation on those products, likely due to the completely different activation methods they employ.

Bottom line

For what it is, Advanced Tokens Manager is simple & to the point. I have sầu little lớn complain about it aside from the obvious limitation of not being able khổng lồ use this on Windows XP. systems. This software does require version 4.0 of the .NET Framework, so you might need khổng lồ grab this if you are running either Windows Vista or 7 on your system. As a piece of advice, consider keeping this software alongside your activation backup so that you don"t have sầu khổng lồ re-download it.
