Release of subscription Key RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've read a number of post regarding how a renewal of an MSDN subscriptions does not reset your licence Key usage count.

    I work for a Large State government which are heavily invested in everything Microsoft. Like a few hundred state employed I've had my subscription renewed annually for more than a decade.  During this time we have upgrade our development workstations a number of times.

    My last dev workstation had 3 VMware o/s images on it for different versions of windows.  It had at least 3 versions of Visual studio and the same number of SQL server servers.  The workstation was decommission as a dev workstation.  That is, completely wiped then either passed on down as a general workstation or sold off.

    All the licence keys would have been lost with it.  Is there a way to reclaim the licences keys when the workstation is retired ?

    Thank You
