For other antivirus their are detect and clean with crack Windows or Office, But for eset it's not detect with KMS and some file crack.

So the client they think eset low protection.

Why ESET not detect it?

What do you mean? KMS is not malware but a potentially unsafe application. This is an optional detection and thus is disabled by default.

You also might want to review this forum posting: https://forum.eset.com/topic/30618-if-you-use-cracked-software-it-will-cost-you/ .

Whereas KMSPico cracker software is not malware, the installer's for it are increasingly being used to deliver malware.

Itman is absolutely right, the packer that is also used for KMS and other cracks is also used by many malware writers and therefore Eset displays.

I for one am not aware of any FPs related to KMS. Detection as a potentially unsafe application is perfectly correct and intentional.

The issue is that a crack basically re-writes stuff into a program to make it work/think/act like a fully paid program, when it isn't. The problem is that generally most people won't know what code was changed - this means malware developers could start sneaking stuff in. 

A lot of cracks are detected as unwanted rather than malware, because of their nature I presume, and the fact they edit other programs code, registry etc. but if people think they are safe and so fully exclude them, in updates they might try and sneak other stuff in.

For that reason It's always safe to get your stuff legally, from trusted software. That's not to say these can't be abused e.g. the CCleaner incident from a few years back (probably quite a few now), but generally these are safer. Also there's probably more people going through the code of legal stuff, certainly if its open sourced.
