Hello,
Confirmed! Activation of WinServer 2022 Standard worked for me via kms9.msguides.com according to the steps above. Thank you, guys! I am using it just for educational purposes, no business. Just me and my son want to learn more and play with some virtuals in the home network conditions... That's it.

Cheers

George
