[Micronet] FW: windows 7 key

Lucy Greco-2

Hello:

after calling back to answer this particular e-mail the question comes to mind. Do we have a website behind authenticated servers that we could get this information from. The other question that comes to mind has to do with how SHI decides which key to give us. Both myself and this department were given to completely different keys both of which were to work on the exact same version of Windows. How are we the IT people to know which key to use when. When I originally asked the question that this person is referring to I had two separate keys both of which I was told by SHI were the campus key for Windows 7 business edition strangely enough they were given the same keys. The key that works for me was not the key that works for them. Why are there two keys to begin with. Or should we all be getting individual keys for every individual install confused I know I am

Hi Lucy,

We are running into a similar problem with our Windows 7 license key up here at Chemistry. Did you ever solve this problem and if you did, how? We contacted SHI but haven't received a response to our inquiry. 

Thanks in advanced.

Hello: could someone on campus with a windows 7 key give me a call to check the key you have with the one I am using. My laptop keeps saying I have a unlicensed version of windows and I keep losing my system settings when it does that.  I now have to different keys from shi and I want to check then against one that is working so I can re set the key on this system. Thanks Lucy

Re: [Micronet] FW:  windows 7 key Hi everyone,

When I’ve worked with the UC SHI team, they originally gave me a Windows 7 Enterprise key, good for 15 copies.  The number of copies was my choosing, as I was testing out Windows 7. When that keycode ran out of licenses, I was given another keycode by SHI, which installs Windows 7 Enterprise, with no limit (that I can find).


(Now some back story)
Earlier, I ordered Vista with our campus MCCA.  At the time, the Microsoft Rep, Taylor Gao told us that when we ordered MCCA Vista licenses, we could get ANY version of Vista.
So, it was legal for us to get Vista Ultimate edition, instead of Professional, for every Windows desktop purchase.  So, I ordered 100 desktop licenses for my users.

However, due to some licensing issue with video codecs in Vista Ultimate, you couldn’t get one master key code.  Each keycode had to be generated and given to you by Microsoft / SHI.
So, I had 100 keys to manage if I installed Vista Ultimate edition.  If I installed Vista professional, I had another master key to use for every machine.


This changed in Windows 7.  I was told that I only would get Windows 7 professional or Enterprise with our MCCA purchase.

In talking to our SHI rep, I have now been given another key that has no limit that I’ve found, that works with Windows 7 enterprise.

When I use this code, I validate against the Microsoft servers, not the UCB campus servers.

Is this the same as what the rest of you that ordered MCCA this year are being told or what you do?
