Hwidgen activates Windows 10 (Including VL Editions) with Permanent Digital Licence. It's actually quite simple and doesn't mess with any system files and leaked (*errrm stolen) keys.
In Windows 10 all systems no matter how they were activated (be it via Upgrade from Windows 7/8.1 or by using a bought Retail or an embedded BIOS aka MSDM license) will be converted to a Digital License which is based on the Hard Ware ID (HWID) of the respective machine. This License is stored at MS Servers and will activate this machine every time it's freshly installed. Only hardware changes will cause the License being invalidated. By binding it to a Microsoft Account (MSA) you will be able to transfer it in latter case.
The process only needs to be performed once per machine. In later installs just skip any key prompts (choose 'I have no product key' during setup) and at first online contact the MS Server will regocnize the HWID and grant activation automatically.
You can get HWID digital licence on all windows 10 version including VL editions (except 1507), There is no pre requirement, Just run this tool, click on patch and done.
it will automatically replace any kms licence if present already.
It doesnt install or store any files for activation in your system. so no need to set exclusions in your av for anything.
You will have to connect to internet while using this tool to get activation instantly but It also works offline, but will give an error at the activation step at the end. At next online contact system will activate.
In same hardware, Upon windows 10 reinstall you don't have to run this tool again and at first online contact the MS Server will recognize the HWID and grant activation automatically.
but if Windows 10 VL version is installed, in that case you will have to insert that edition generic key to regain activation. or you can use key-install option in this tool.
There is also manual method available and if you want, you can use that instead of tool.
Silent switch — hwidgen.mk3 silent.
Things to check in case of failed Activation
Make sure your internet is working fine.
Make sure you are not running any VPN.
Make sure there is no windows update blocker program used.
make sure there are no entries in host file and firewalls made by Antispy and privacy Tools.
If you want to regain hwid licence Upon windows reinstall in vl edition (retail edition will activate auto, no problem there) of windows 10 then you have to enter its generic key, or you can use key-install option in this tool.
Windows 10 1507 version is not supported by this tool.
Still you cant get activation then post your concern here with hwidgen generated log. (I will post more suggestion as soon as i find them)

processes have been reworked (thanks to Sponpa for inspiration)
separated slc.dll for HWID and KMS38
both use gatherosstate.exe from 17134 ADK, only LTSB 2015 uses modded version of it
processes now read SKU-ID from temp file, no registry entries needed
