SkipAutoActivation

Updated: August 1, 2012

Applies To: Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

SkipAutoActivation specifies whether Windows® attempts to automatically activate. For automatic activation to complete, a valid Windows product key is required.

After Windows has been activated, it is not necessary to use the unattended-Setup setting: Microsoft-Windows-Security-SPP-UX\SkipAutoActivation. Do not use the SkipAutoActivation setting on a system that has already been activated with a non-system locked pre-installation (SLP) license key.

This setting has no effect on Server Core installations of Windows Server® 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012.

 

true

Specifies that Windows does not attempt to automatically activate.

false

Specifies that Windows attempts to automatically activate. This is the default value.

For a list of the Windows editions and architectures that this component supports, see Microsoft-Windows-Security-SPP-UX.

The following sample XML output specifies that auto-activation is skipped.
