What Products Need Volume License Keys


Lately I have received lots of calls and emails in relation to volume license keys, people not being able to find them and wondering what they can do.

Not all Volume Licensing products require a key. Some products have a built-in key; this is known as "prepopulating the Product ID (PID)." Some Volume License Keys cannot be obtained through MVLS or eOpen and these are noted in the link below.

The following link will outline the products that require a VLK.


Keys are assigned to and intended for the sole use of your organization. You may be held responsible for unauthorized use of Volume License Keys that are issued under your agreement, so be sure to keep your keys secure and do not disclose them to unauthorized parties. If you use the Microsoft Volume License Services Web site, you should regularly review and update the user permissions.

Please feel free to drop me a line if you have any queries on vs-irl@microsoft.com

Have a good weekend.
