In order to get a bit better parts I have the option of buying it without a Windows license. I need Windows however and after some thinking I remembered that I have an old PC collecting dust which should have a retail version of Windows 7. Now I've long forgotten where the key is or even if I had a key (it might have been a volume license thing from work) so I have a few questions...</p> <ol> <li><p>How can I check what type of license I have and whether it can be transferred to a new PC?</p></li> <li><p>If I can use the old license, how can I see the activation key?</p></li> <li><p>I've read that even now (about 2 years later) one can still upgrade to Windows 10 for free? How is the best way to do this? I mean is it better to upgrade on the old PC and then reinstall on the new one, or should I install Win 7 on the new laptop and then upgrade?</p></li> </ol> <p>I hope I've managed to ask my questions clearly enough as I don't think I understand Microsoft's licensing policy well.</p> <p>Thank you!</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1431175 2 BBC iPlayer downloader app DRM issue SpacePhoenix http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/1029445 2019-04-29T22:18:01Z 2019-05-01T10:07:09Z <p>Got a strange issue with the iPlayer app on one of my computers.

I was given a task to install Ansys Fluent at new computer at my university. The authorities provide national license and our university's public ip is authorized by Ansys national license server (ANLS) and each internal computer obtains licence automatically by connecting with the licence server via our public IP. However, our new computer was given by IT a static IP by which I can connect to it remotely through the SSH for instance, plus it has another IP for default gateway (which I supposed it was a public IP) and also it has some completely different IP when I check it through "what is my ip website". So, there are 3 different IPs what I can't understand and more importantly, which IP I should provide with the ANLS so they will be able to configure their license server to authorize our new computer.</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/866623 0 How to find the actual product key of Microsoft Office 2010?

What if I have to purchase another license for each re-install or will the License cross over to the newly installed VM as long as the VM Machine name is the same? </li> </ol> <p>UPDATE----<br> You have to purchase a 16-core license pack or more. Nothing less.<br> Standard = $882.00 US for a 2 proc, 16 core<br> Datacenter = $6,155.00 US for a 2 proc, 16 core </p> <p>If you have a system like what I have at the current time, which is<br> 2 proc, 8 core (4 cores for proc)<br> Then you have to get the 16 core license pack. </p> <p>However, I can not find rather this one pack, will install across ALL VM's or not?

I don't remember it exactly and can't find any product key associated with it, so I wonder how I should provide the license during such installation?

After reading online, it looks like I would be able to do it easily since my system is activated with digital license. </p> <p>However, I have a question. I have at least 3 PCs in my house with the same Microsoft account on them. Presumably, all of them have digital license linked to this same Microsoft account. I wonder if there is a centralized place to check all my digital licensed connected to my Microsoft account?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/619135 0 How to enable the WMI service on many machines to find MS-Office licenses using the Volume Activation Management Tool 2.0 using Active Directory? leeand00 http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/2293 2013-07-12T20:38:19Z 2019-02-16T13:02:45Z <p>I installed the <code>Volume Activation Management Tool 2.0</code> from Microsoft to scan all the computers on my network to find out how many valid MS Office licenses we have installed on all of the machines. </p> <p>Every workstation should have MS-Office installed on it, but not all of them are registered. Unfortunately I'm not sure that every workstation in the place is configured to pickup the licenses. I've gotten alot of <code>Unable to connect to the WMI service on the remote machine</code> errors. Okay so obviously it's the WMI service, is there any way of batch-enabling on the network?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1404946 0 Dell Inspiron 3421 - get license key of a Win8 on Ubuntu [duplicate] user8012 http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/915174 2019-02-12T18:11:14Z 2019-02-12T18:11:14Z <div class="question-status question-originals-of-duplicate"> <p>This question already has an answer here:</p> <ul> <li> <a href="/questions/650019/how-to-use-windows-8-1-rtm-with-8-0-key" dir="ltr">How to use Windows 8.1 RTM with 8.0 key?

So I've downloaded from the Microsoft website a new copy.</p> <p>To get the license key I've found a few different solutions, and all of them gave me the same result. The one I am using is: <code>sudo hexdump -s 56 -e '"MSDM key: " /29 "%s\n"' /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/MSDM</code></p> <p>According to the Win8 installation, the key I've got is not a valid key.</p> <p>I don't know where to go from here, but I would like very much to avoid buying a service from Dell to get this done.</p> <p>I've done this on another laptop a few years ago. I don't remember exactly how to process went, but I do remember that I got different license keys, using different commands. Can't remember the commands!! :(</p> <p>So far I've used the one above and: dmidecode, lshw and hwinfo.</p> <p>Anyone can help?

At the end of the "Pro" support I was told that this is totally fine, but I asked for documentation to be emailed to me and never got it.</p> <p>First off, this is in a commercial environment. We are imaging Dell laptops and desktops with Windows 10. The systems came with Windows 8/8.1 keys embedded, but were downgraded to 7. We are not "upgrading" from within the OS, just imaging right over the top.</p> <p>After the imaging process Windows 10 automatically activates, I'm assuming because it sees the embedded 8/8.1 key.</p> <p>Is this a properly/legitimately licensed copy of Windows 10?</p> <p>If it is, how can we know? If it is not, why is Microsoft allowing this to happen?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1181567 0 Set Proxy credentials in Visual Studio Community when license is expired Thom G http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/652276 2017-02-22T11:22:54Z 2019-02-06T19:01:00Z <p>I have an issue setting the proxy for Visual Studio Community.
