    Hi there!

    I want to sale two of my retail Windows 10 licenses (they've been running on a VirtualBox Linux host). In my country (Germany), it's allowed to resale Windows licenses, but I've got two problems:

    1. One of the licenses is connected to the Microsoft account,
    2. the other is not.
    I think, I can deactive the second license without a problem, uninstall the software and sell it. But what about the one connected to my Microsoft account? Is there a way to remove a license from it?

    Best reagards,
    Johann

    Sorry, but when you're buying a product key at eBay or others, you're getting NO LICENSE. You're only buying a product key, which you can activate WIndows with. You don't get a license to actually USE windows. But Microsoft doesn't sue legit users right now. There are strict rules for selling used software or split volume licences.

    I think, I'm not allowed to sell them here. I'll do it on the right thread as soon as we've cleared all the problems :)

    Use the current HWID developments and all sku's are 100% free and legit.

    ps, the activation now probably is HWID anyway, afaik the used key should not re-activate again on other systems.

    This is going offtopic, but an activated windows doesn't mean, it's licensed. Activation != license.
     
  9. Why one would buy you a key when they can get it from MS ?

    I think, we're so far offtopic now that I don't understand what you mean :-(

    If they can at all, they didn't do it, except for LTSC they did not provide HWID options, but longterm KMS activation is possible:)
