I have used this program in the past, and I have found it to be a handy little utility that save time, aggravation, and maybe dialing MS for support.

I certainly hope that some of you will find this utility software as handy as I have!

Enjoy! :D

This is NOT a crack or hack to bypass use of a legal product key! It just backs up the legitimate "token.dat" file is all. Read the description and see what I'm talking about.
Advanced Tokens Manager - The Activation Backup Solution

"The Activation Backup for Windows and Office has never been easier"

The Softpedia Certification

Advanced Tokens Manager, will help to make a complete and trusted backup of your activation data.

Microsoft imposes a limit of activations for each license online, using the program, you can activate offline number of times you want, and enjoy your Genuine Software.

*Number of times you want on the same machine [ limited legally by Microsoft Hardware ID ]

The Backup Compatibility is:

  • Office 2010
  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista
  • Windows Server 2008 / 2011 Family
* All editions, versions and Service Packs of supported softwares

What is Tokens.dat?

  • Tokens.dat is a digitally signed file, which stores most of the windows activation files;
  • All files together have a digital signature that prevents tokens.dat be replaced on other machines, in this case, if used on different machines, will ask for online activation;
  • I advise making a new backup every change in hardware.

  • Virus FREE, no external programs required [ .NET Framework v3.5 only ]
  • Auto-log for Restore functions
  • Coded with security features
  • Very lightweight and fast
  • Dynamic interface
  • ~5 minutes is estimated time for restore your activation
How important is I have the phone activation?

  • You do not need to call for Microsoft, entering 25 numbers, and imput 25 characters on the microsoft activation utility ;
  • You restore the activation in one click ;
  • You can make changes in hardware, without losing your license [ of non-retail licenses without M$ support ] ;
  • Engine 100% safe from errors and brick with activation
Using the program:
Advanced Tokens Manager, is very simple to use, you simply have a folder with the program, run it, press Backup button, wait for the return of success.

After the procedure, save the folder, and make sure that the following files

  • Executable
  • Backup Folder

It's necessary to restore activation at a future installation

* For silent restore, put /S argument and check the following files are saved in the Backup folder, the silent backup is working only with windows activation

  • config.ini
  • tokens.dat

"BBBBB" Product Key is shown, What ?

  • This is return, is an MAK Key, or other key hidden in the Registry, and not has been decoded by application
  • No problems, the application will shown an window for you enter the correct product key for an trusted backup
  • Please have sure of input product key
  • If received key is wrong, the restore can't work
  • Is shown the last 5 characters of real product key for you input

Error extracting product key at the kernel ?

- You can receive this return when backup any activation, probably 2 problems:

  • [*]You not have any product key installed on the product
    [*]Your install is corrupted and impossible to extract the product key
- How can I solve ?

  • [*]Try restart the system
    [*]Repair your installs


  • Compatible only with all versions of Windows Vista / 7, Server 2008 / 2011 Versions, 6.0 and 6.1 Kernel , Office 2010 - All Service Packs
  • The Office 2010 will be repaired automatically next start, it's normal
  • If the license is restored on another machine to different hardware ID, both office and windows will ask for online activation
