  1. Open up an Elevated Command Prompt window. For instructions, please see our guide: How To Open an Elevated Command Prompt.
  2. In the elevated Command Prompt window, verify that the current directory is C:\Windows\System32. If it is not, type
    CD \Windows\System32
    and press Enter.
  3. Type the following command:
    cscript slmgr.vbs /skms kms01.cit.cornell.edu
    and press Enter.
    (Note: The url in the command above begins with kay-emm-ess-zero-one.)
  4. Type the following command:

    and press Enter.
  5. Close the Command Prompt window.

And you’re done for that installation of Windows on that computer.
