    I read that a subscription to technet.microsoft.com includes 10 product keys for Windows 7 Ultimate as well as other OS versions. Can anyone confirm this? I'm considering buying a subscription solely for the product keys. I have several PCs running Windows 7 at home/office and would like to make them legit. The subscription price is $251 which isn't bad if it actually includes 10 keys.

    Are there any other sources for legitimate keys?

    Unless they have changed it in the last couple years, when I had a TechNet subscription, I got one key for each product requested, but each key was good for 10 activations.

    I can confirm that you get 10 keys for each product.. 10 for 7 ultimate...10 for 7 Pro...1 key for Enterprise which is good for 500 activations....10 for home premium etc...same for vista and xp...office 2007...just bought my susbscription a little over a month ago...hope this helps in answering your question

    And you also get 10 keys for Ultimate N...and 10 more fore Home Premium N...with the N version not having media player bundled with the OS....but you can download an add on from microsoft to install it on the N version..

    Oppsss it is 322 eu in amazon.de and same is amazon.co.uk,
    1.5x price compare with us!!!!

    on us site :
    Subtotal $251.28
    Shipping & Handling $0.00
    TAX @ 9.75% On $251.28$24.50
    Order Total $275.78

    There is a notice:

    so i need real US adress?
    if i write fake US adress on Technet Us, is there a chance to get subscription,they re going to send subs. details by e-mail or they send only Subscription Identification card to billing adress?


    @Esipes3821

    If one or more of your msdn product keys are stolen by virus trojan etc. and publish on net,microsoft would be block and blacklisted all of your key and subscription as a fraud -violation of EULA or they just blacklisted the key which is stolen?

    I cant really answer that question without guessing....because I have yet to have any of my keys leaked anywhere.....but if you try to activate a key on more machines or times allowed...you will just get message when activating that says key is active on another machine....but if a key was leaked on the net and was trying to be activated thousands of times...I dont know if someone would notice and take the time to kill all keys gernerated on the account or not...and I dont plan on finding out...lol

    so what happens if i subscribe and pull a dozen or more keys in the first few days will the flag my account. i have a total of 12 systems i need keys for up front.. or does it not matter as long as the keys are not being used on more than one machine and properly??

    That's a huge amount of PCs for such a small price, I wonder if they can change that at any time.

    When I first got my account I generated over a hundred keys within an hour of getting the account with no problems..only activated 7-10 of them...as far as changing the amount of activations for Enterprise.. I am sure Microsoft can reduce the activations at any time..but I dont think they will....by the way you get no volume licence key for xp...(at least not with the technet plus account) and the key for Enterprise Edition of Vista is only good for 100 activations...

    Sorry, if this is a dump question. The idea of those technet licenses is for testing software and setups? When I use those keys to activate my home or office systems, isn't this against the license agreement?
    I need 12 licenses for my office, plus one 2008 server or SBS 2008. This would be a really good deal to get those systems to run. But I use those machines for normal production use and think this is not legit or am I wrong?

    From my understanding you are correct....They can not be used in a production enviroment according to the agreement..just for testing purposes....good thing I will be testing windows 7 until Windows 8 is released....lol

    That was my point :) Testing since DOS 3.0 and waiting for an MS OS I can trust without testing for several years. Oh wait, for MS DOS 3.3, 5,0 and Windows 3.11 I have the floppydisks with the license printed on them.

    So, thechnet is no way for my office to keep costs down.

    When Windows 7 was released, i bought a few keys from a certain trustworthy seller from e-bay. The keys are still working and she was even willing to replace non-working keys. Maybe you could try your luck over there.

    Is this subscription good for 1 year and then must be renewed?
