    impossible because enterprise and VL versions are not designed to carry such stuff

    If you have both Ent and Pro Activated. then if you can Frank-en-stein build ... I think it was discussed on MDL somewhere...
    but not worth the time (IMHO). I did this back in 2013. and called it Enterprise = Pro Retail so I could Activate it.
    with a Pro Retail Key...

    Just because it can be done doesn't mean it should be done.

    of course there are ways to circumvent many things like the conversion but it mostly ends up in a disaster like usual so MDL never recommends such procedures (perhaps behind back doors but never in public)
