Need a way to activate sideloading key without online activation


  • I am currently installing a windows app store app (metro).  My customer has a need to install the app store app without an internet connection.  For this reason we chose to use the microsoft sideloading license key option.  This option works fine however it requires an active internet connection to access the microsoft license server.  This connection is required when using the following command..

    slmgr /ato  ec67814b-30e6-4a50-bf7b-d55daf729d1eappx

    My question is this.  Is there any way to use a volume license key, or some other key that i can activate while not connected to any internet whatsoever?  

    thank you,
