    Hmm, I don't know, I didn't have any activation problems. If you are using a single license, keep in mind that the VM is considered a different machine, and thus needs a different license.
    If you have a volume license installation, it will work even without any activation at all, but you can't do certain customizations, such as choose your wallpaper.
    That's about all I know about it.
    Well then I’m out of luck, because I bought my laptop with windows 8.1 pro preinstalled e.g single license . Oh well, if the only limitation is the wallpaper I can live with that no problem. Thanks alot for the information shmu26.

    You can buy a license on ebay for super cheap. I did it a few times, and it always worked. Once Windows is activated with a single license, even an ebay one, you won't have problems after that.
