    With all due respect, you have been a member for four years today, :D and this subject has been covered in many other threads. Please read them first. No reason for another thread about this. (And yes, it is still possible, depending on what you are starting from. VL or Retail? KMS or no? WMC key used previously or a new purchase?)

    That's the thing. I have searched but couldnt find an answer how can I do it hence I created a thread. :rolleyes:

    I'ts a Volume License and that's about it. WMC key is which I requested from MS when they were giving it away and it's not been used.

    Thanks

    Strike two: VL cant get upgraded to WMC

    Strike Three: Unused WMC keys are duds...

    ... you're out (of luck) :huh:
