Where is my product key for my retail systems? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I built my device with Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry.  I always used MSDN product keys to activate it, and it worked fine.  Now that I am ready to distribute, I bought runtime licenses for devices I sold, but there is no product key.  I only have a serial number (all numbers, no letters like other product keys).  So which product key sould I use to install them?  or where could I retrieve product keys associated with the licenses I just bought for those devices?

  • You distributor should have provided you with a form that you e-mail to Microsoft. Microsoft will then send you a 5x5 alpha numeric key for the image. All you need is one key for all clones, but each system shipped gets a sticker. Use the serial numbers on the sticker to track units shipped.

    Please contact your distributor for more information. / / Book Author - Pro Guide to WE8S, Pro Guide to WES 7, Pro Guide to POS for .NET
