Changing a Windows product Key (XP/7)
We've just separated from a big org, and find ourselves needing to either reimage or relicense our XP and w7 operating systems. I'm hoping there is some way to do this in Kace, either changing to KMS or using our MAK key - has anyone had any experience doing this, or can offer some suggestions on where to start?

For Win 7:
I haven't tried it in a K1000 script, but you should be able to use the slmgr.vbs script for this: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff793433.aspx
This shows more options: http://www.windowsnetworking.com/articles_tutorials/windows-server-license-manager-script-slmgrvbs.html
A K1000 script would have two parts:
slmgr.vbs -ipk <type your product key here>
The first line would insert the new product key, the second would activate it.
