Hi There,

Just wondering. if you a TechNet subscriber and you claim a product key, is it purely for testing purposes or is it your key as if you bought it. How does it work?

Thanks in Advance.

Your TechNet subscription gives you access to a wide range of Microsoft products for evaluation. Some of these products require product keys during installation, and some of those require activation.
