Hello Meinolf,

First , thanks for your reply.
But this software can only get the product key. I don't know if it is the
MSDN key or not. Is there any way to see from the OS side , I can know the
version no. or build no. can determine it 's installed by MSDN key?

Thanks,

Wayne Wan

Hello wayne,

You should have an overview over your keys in use or on the MSDN web page.
So you can compare them.

Try "Wininfo" it can inform on NFR, Volume, OEM but I cannot say about MSDN as I
do not have a copy. It can also do it for remote systems.

There are 10 types of people, those that understand binary and those that don't.

Hello Wayne,
Right-click on My Computer and choose properties
There is a twenty digit number on that page in this format
xxxxx-YYY-xxxxxxx-xxxxx
What are the three digits represented by YYY listed above?
Thanks,
Darrell Gorter[MSFT]
