Windows 8.1 Pro License Migration To New Laptops(From Older Ones To Be Decomissioned) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone!

    We are registered members on Microsoft Partner Network with Action Pack Subscription. We have a Windows 8.1 Pro Product Key which gives us 10 licensed installations. Please advise us regarding the following:-

    We want to decommission the laptops we are currently using and procure newer ones.

    #1.  Is it possible to migrate the product key/licenses to newer machines?

    #2.  If yes, what's the process to be followed for doing so?

    Thanks & Regards,

  • #1 - Yes, I believe you can do this. 

    #2 - Just use the same key.  If you have any issues with activation, then you'll need to contact the licensing center and they can help you directly.  They're typically very forgiving when you explain that you're installing a license on a replacement machine.
