  • Hi,

    As far as I know, Visual Studio is licensed per user. You can have one installation on your laptop and another on your desktop as long as they are both used by you only (or any other user has a license). Here's Microsoft's whitepaper on licensing.

    And about your license information, please consult license specialist directly. You can call 1-800-426-9400, Monday through Friday, 6:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. (Pacific Time). Worldwide customers can use the Guide to Worldwide Microsoft Licensing Sites to find contact information in their locations: http://www.microsoft.com/licensing/

    Best Wishes!

  • IIRC, the VS 2013 license gives you two installations for one licensed user.

    You should be able to install your VS 2013 on your new workstation, then apply the key you have with no issues.

    The above assumes, of course, that the only previous installation was your laptop.

    Let us know how it goes, especially if you have any issues and need further assistance.
