Question

So a question, I need to activate this with my KMS right? I used my <g class="gr_ gr_5 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="5" id="5">vpn</g> to connect to the VM get I get a crazy error about being out of <g class="gr_ gr_8 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling multiReplace" data-gr-id="8" id="8">licences</g> which I know is not right.  A little help would be great.

Crazy <g class="gr_ gr_163 gr-alert gr_tiny gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling multiReplace" data-gr-id="163" id="163">i</g> would not <g class="gr_ gr_26 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="26" id="26">activte</g> with the commands but I just used the CB7KF-BWN84-R7R2Y-793K2-8XDDG key and it shows right with /<g class="gr_ gr_159 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling ins-del multiReplace" data-gr-id="159" id="159">dlv</g> now.

Is this all I need to do?
