We often hear from customers asking about tools they can use to track and report activation data for Windows operating systems activated using Key Management Service (KMS) or Multiple Activation Key (MAK). Microsoft’s free Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) 2.0 helps you monitor KMS, MAK and even retail activation information. VAMT can provide important information on license status, and whether installed software is genuine, which can help with license compliance.

VAMT 2.0 Monitor and Manage

VAMT isn’t meant to replace a tool you already may be using for software asset management or license management. However, it will help you to centrally manage and monitor activation for the following products: Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008, plus Office 2010 client suites and applications, Visio 2010 and Project 2010 clients.
