Anyway to find out what version of office a key goes to? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a few keys at work that are genuine and as I add them to my inventory system is there a way to tell if they are Pro/HB/Home Office versions? the previous admin here took the sleeves with the product key out of the packages and left it in a pile. Most of the stickers said HB or Pro just these 4 dont mention what version they are.

  • Not so far as I am aware - although you could try phoning the MS Activation Center and asking them...

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.

    From memory, VAMT can tell you that, when you key in the keys to your VAMT you can validate them online to MSFT and it tells you what type of product and key.
