Windows Thin PC (WinTPC) can be activated with Key Management Services (KMS) activation only if Write Filters are not used.
By design, a KMS client will need to request reactivation from the KMS host every 180 days. Use of Write Filters would revert the system to a pre-activation state at each reboot.
- When using File Based Write Filters (FBWF) on system drive, Microsoft recommends to use MAK Activation instead of KMS.
- WinTPC should be activated prior to enabling the Write Filters using the MAK Licenses.
