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/1406443 -2 How does Windows 8 license (key) work?

(It is Not a strong machine, that will come later on in the year. </p> <p>I have two questions: </p> <ol> <li>How does the Windows 2016 Server License work, on a VM, with a single core? </li> <li>If I get a license for each of the VM's that are on the system, and if for some reason, I have to reinstall one or more of the VM's. How would that affect the License that is attached to the existing VM? 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? If it will install across all the VM's then that will be great. </p> <p>Anymore incite on this, would be greatly appreciated. </p> <p>EE</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?

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.

One is a Windows 10 computer I use for internet and day-to-day stuff, and the other is a Windows XP computer that I've had for ages. What I want to do is part out the Windows XP computer and possibly save its operating system and files as a partition on the Windows 10 computer. The problem is that the XP is OEM, and I can't just move things around without losing the license. It turns out someone is selling a Windows 7 Pro retail upgrade disk for a reasonable price and since XP mode is a thing, here's my question... </p> <p>If I upgraded Windows XP Home OEM using the upgrade disk, would my license now be for Windows 7 Pro retail that could be transferred to another pc?</p> <p>Okay, I could totally just setup Windows 7 Pro OEM or even Windows XP Pro x64 OEM as the other partition and just transfer the files, but after these shenanigans I don't want to hassle with OEM. And since I have a better chance of catching a camo unicorn than finding a reasonably priced retail license for either of these operating systems this is what I'm going to have to go with. Should I just forget this and live a normal live only using Windows 10? Maybe, but what's the fun in that?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1400443 0 Java JRE distribution and JDK licensing HenrikW http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/992328 2019-01-31T08:49:51Z 2019-01-31T08:49:51Z <p>Not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but I'll give it a go :)</p> <p>We have a hardware product (scientific instrument) where we supply the user with a java application served via webstart and also distribute an unmodified Java JRE 7 installer in case of offline use.

It says they are unlicensed and should login. However, if I look at the accounts settings in the apps they are already logged in. In the O365 control panel they are set for the correct version and apps. If they go to the office.com portal themselves it even confirms that they are licensed and logged in. If I delete their computer authorization from O365 and have them sign in, it gets updated with that computer again, but the sign in from the app reports failure and continues to tell them they are not licensed (but if you check accounts afterwards it will show them as logged in).</p> <p>I've gone so far as to deactivate the license, uninstall Office completely, and reinstall. Every indicator in the system says they are licensed <em>except</em> for the apps themselves. What else should I look at?</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1389861 0 added Office 365 licenses, broke launching Keager http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/534898 2019-01-02T17:19:48Z 2019-01-02T17:19:48Z <p>Using our cloud session through VMWare, we had it all set up so that anyone on a certain "tier" would have access to Word, Excel, Power Point, Access, basically everything but Outlook which was through office.com. Worked great, everyone could launch it, would not prompt for user credentials. Had to get into office.com for email. No problems. We were running out of licenses, so more were purchased and the licensing was updated. This no longer works as it once did. Everyone was getting prompted to log in. Everyone had access to it, but had to keep logging in with every new cloud session. Our call volume was crazy. With a very small IT department, we made the decision to change the access from everyone uses it through office.com to full office licenses. For an additional cost (well over $4k a month), everyone once again works. Not everyone <em>needs</em> full office, just mostly access to Outlook. Looking for a way to set this back the way it was. We contacted our cloud hosting company, and they...didn't help much other than saying they didn't know how they original set it up, or that it shouldn't have been set up that way to being with. </p> <p>I did see this similar question (<a href="http://andreidionian.com/?id=questions/1272590/office-2016-disallow-sign-in-to-office-but-continue-using-office-365-email-in">Office 2016: Disallow sign-in to Office, but continue using Office 365 email in Outlook</a>) but am not convinced that these are the same issue. Looking for clarification if it is, and if so, will try it out. </p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/922867 7 Windows 10 Free Upgrade - What happens to Windows 7/8?

I want to have (at least) two virtual guests running Windows 10 (ideally home edition). These guests will be running on KVM-QEMU (so type 1 hypervisor from the MS licensing point of view) and will be accessed remotely from various devices, such as Windows notebooks, Macbooks, iPads, iPhones, Android tablets or Android phones over the SPICE protocol or using the NVidia Gamestream. From MS point of view this is regular Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, nothing else.</p> <p>All of this I would like to use just for personally, not commercially.</p> <p>According to the license agreement it is not possible to use OEM neither Box version of MS Windows. I would like to know if there is a Software Assurance and/or Windows VDA subscription for personal use. I really don't want to pay $100 per device a year as it is for personal use and I will not make even a $ profit on this.</p> <p>How do you guys solve such problem?

The PC's are going from Windows 10 to a different Windows 10 image. One of the salesmen relies on Microsoft Streets and Trips 2010, but getting it working on the new PC has been impossible. We have the DVD, keep case, literature, and registration key, but the online activation process fails with a message that we're out of usable licenses. I then spoke to a person at MS's registration center and because the software is discontinued, they won't lift a finger to help. (As an aside, being able to use something you've paid for is not my definition of offering "support".) Is there a technique to copy the "this software is registered" information from his original PC's registry, or is it signed in some way? As S&amp;T is a MS product, I assume it adheres to some standard.</p> <p>Failing that, can anybody provide insight into how the registration process works from a low level perspective? And has the Electronic Frontier Foundation or others ever put this scenario forward for a DMCA exemption? I am used to using free software at home, and this problem has gotten me ticked.</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/1374729 0 How to know the license of a code generated by a GPL-licensed software?

I am doing the same steps, however when installing Windows to a drive, it still prompts me the Product Key dialog box also with EULAs.</p> <p>My product key is valid and the purpose of this operation is to install my Windows 10 Edition in "one-shot" which means without typing any license key or accepting any EULAs since they would have been already typed/accepted.</p> <p>(I am using a bootable USB drive in UEFI)</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/114308 3 Virtualbox license AO http://andreidionian.com/?id=users/0 2010-02-27T19:25:17Z 2018-11-01T10:38:02Z <blockquote> <p>It doesn't matter whether you just use it for fun or run your multi-million euro business with it.

It has Windows 10 on it. When I check with dell web site it was first delivered with 8.1 but was upgraded to Windows 10 while that was free.</p> <p>Theres a million programs and files on the computer so I would like to re-install it using Windows 10.</p> <p>If I understood correctly checking with MS the license should be coupled with that hardware (when upgraded to Win10) so I could just download the Win 10 ISO from MS and run an installation from that.</p> <p>What do you think? Should I try to extract the license key first? And if so How? :) Or should I try to find a Dell recovery image instead? Any ideas and tips?</p> <p>Thanks!</p> <p>--</p> <p><strong>Here is what I did</strong></p> <p>I downloaded the Windows 10 iso from Microsoft and created a bootable USB drive with the provided tool. I booted the computer from that and when it asked for a serial I just clicked I don't have one and continued the installation.</p> <p>When Windows was installed and I had put in my Wifi password it had activated itself with Microsoft. The license key is generated based on the motherboard for all (or many?) of the upgrades from Windows 8.</p> http://andreidionian.com/?id=q/866623 0 How to find the actual product key of Microsoft Office 2010?
