    Previous Technet subscribers - Keys still available

    Hi there

    For those who were previous TechNet subscribers -- you CAN still get your keys even if you can't download the products any more.

    This is good for people who for example want to get a W10 licence -- you can enter a VALID W7 / W8 / W8.1 key for example for W10 installation and activation.

    On the TechNet page you can export your keys as an XML file which you can open with EXCEL and save as an EXCEL file.

    Hopefully this is of use to some people - especially if you want an extra licence or two --for example creating VM's.

    I wish they wouldn't block you from downloading software, what's the harm in that? It's useless without a key anyway. I exported my keys long ago, just before it expired, just in case.
