This will change the key (if required)

cscript //b c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX <-----Windows 7 VL / MAK key

This will activate

cscript //b c:\windows\system32\slmgr.vbs /ato

Also this other way works.

In a batch run (.bat) :

slmgr.vbs -ipk <type your product key here>
slmgr.vbs -ato
