Hey guys
Well I’m selling my licenses of Windows Vista
Here’s the deal
1 key can activate 10 pcs
So here are the editions for sell
Windows Vista Business = 1 key + ISO and 10 Activations
Windows Vista Business N = 1 key + ISO and 10 Activations
Windows Vista Home Basic = 1 key + ISO and 10 Activations
Windows Vista Home Basic N = 1 key + ISO and 10 Activations
Windows Vista Home Premium = 1 key + ISO and 9 Activations
Windows Vista Enterprise = 1 key + ISO and 15 Activations MAK Activation Type

I have the ultimate too but I don’t want to sell it
Keys are valid and 100% genuine
Why they can activate 10 pcs well because a friend of mine (Inside Microsoft) sold me the pack so yeah
They are not OEM
They are full retail with full Microsoft Support
Also… I have some Office 2007 ones too.
Office Professional 2007
Office Enterprise 2007 (Retail)
Office Professional Plus 2007
Office Ultimate 2007
But for those I don’t have the ISO files… mostly because the DVD+9 well... it got under the bed and when I find it again it was all scratched so it doesn’t work anymore I tried to clean it but nothing so I just put it on the garbage
However you can get the ISOs from Torrents and use the key and it will work just fine
They also have 10 activations each
The price
Well I’m taking the Retail Price of a single license and multiply by the number of times that it can be activated
Example:
http://www.amazon.com/Microsoft-Windows ... B000HCZ9AW
Price: $204.99
Each
So my price will be…
204.99 x 10 = 2049.9
Final Price $1844.1 USD
So if you have someone who may want those or you want those well.. Just PM
I need money and I don’t use them anyways that’s why I’m selling

For that money you ask, you can get 10 different keys.

I dont think anyone would buy it.
Unless you have about 2000$ to spare (wich nobody has, only very rich people).

EDIT:
These licenses CAN activate 10 pc's, but it can only be used online at 1 pc at a time

These sound like TechNet keys, and it would be a lot cheaper to buy a TechNet subscription and get them that way direct from MS, in addition to all the Office, Windows Server, Windows XP etc ones that you get in a TechNet subscription...

Note too that TechNet keys are really only meant for "evaluation", albeit non-time-limited evaluation - while it's debateable what that means, I don't think you could get away with using them for commercial use.

Technet keys are for ''Personal'' use only.
So you can use them at home all the time, but not at work.

"normal" retail can be activated on one pc at a time. The key is valid for both x86 as well as x64 but still only one install simultaneously. As for the maximum number of different computers I don't know an exact figure but I've been told that it's unlimited as far as the transferral goes.

The ten activations at the same time makes it sound more like a VLK or something similar.

Cool, been looking at the terms and as far as I can see technet rules. You get "full" licenses for software with the only catches being that they're personal and not transferrable. Subscribing to technet looks like a great option if you have a bunch of machines.

How do we know these keys are official?
Do they come with a Certificate?
Are they Technet or MSDN Keys?
Have they been activated before?
Are these OEM keys off School/Business/Uni systems?
Are these keys legal under the conditions of Microsoft?
Where did you buy these keys?
Where did you get these keys?
Who did you get these keys from?
How do we know you wont use these keys in the future?
How do we know the person you got these from wont use them in the future?

I have many more of these questions, because I am 98% sure I know where these came from.

Is there any chance you can show us a picture of the box, if you have it (it was a little unclear weather he gave you the box or he grabbed stuff from the box)?

Those keys are useless if something goes wrong with activation and Microsoft requires you to prove Proof of Purchase and for additional support.

http://www.microsoft.com/resources/howt ... laylang=en

http://www.microsoft.com/piracy/

Those were 2 of the links that Microsoft sent me when I sent off an email asking the legality of sales without a COA or documentation of the purchase with or without Media, and with or without a COA, location of purchase receipt of location of purchase.

umm and why something will go wrong with the activation?

the only way they will go wrong is if they have been activated more than 10 times

wich if you buy its up to you...

as for the COA

it only comes with OEM/Retail Box
not on licenses

Example:
U dont get COA on MSDN/TechNet/ActionPack/Open/Select/Etc..
you only get the licenses by key and meida

and maybe you dont even notice that im not selling FPP
im not sellin OEM so theres no way i can have a COA

the Proof of Purchase can be any ticket @ anyplace just marking the product keys on the invoice thing

for example:
Digital Purchases

u will never get a COA
the DVD well. its optional
what you get is:
KEY
ISO
just like the stuff im selling

Look at here:
http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/content.aspx?ctId=395

maybe Microsoft forgot to tell you that
lol
so just one question...

are you planing to buy? or you are just trying to look go0d infront everyone ?
just wondering...

Quote:
How Can You Tell?
Always look for a Certificate of Authority (COA). A COA is a label that helps you identify genuine Microsoft software. A COA is not a software license – it is a visual identifier that assists in determining whether or not the Microsoft software you are running is genuine. However, without it, you will not have a legal license to run Microsoft software. A COA should never be purchased by itself without the software it authenticates.

lol
microsoft needs to update that info because on marketplace you wont get the COA
lol

or for example....
i have my connect key in use
but omg i dont have a COA!!
acording to Alexsis here

OMG!! what im going to do?!!!
lol!
i dont have a Proof of Purchase or COA?!!!!
lol!

is really that simple.

Fact remains that it's a breach of contract and EULA to resell the keys/licenses. If someone's willing to pay full price for a license that runs the risk of being blacklisted it's up to them. :)

the keys will only get blacklisted if they are abused
but umm well theres no way to actually "blacklist" the vista keys
mostly because they are not VLK 1.0 as so0n as they reach the activation limit they are useless for someone else

but valid for the 10 pcs
remebr this is not Windows XP
that had 1 key VLK that was on almost every single pc on the planet

Ok, blacklisting was perhaps not the correct terminology. Invalidated or "illegal" would be a better name for it I suppose.

Ok, I'll try to clarify. Use of those keys isn't allowed, if they get hold of either the person who uses them or provided them he'll get into trouble. Those keys are about as valid as an OEM activation crack, sure they "work" with all updates etc but that doesn't mean that the practise is legal. So any buyer is pretty much paying a hefty sum of money for something about as valid as a downloaded Vista crack.
