I have a client who has been using:
Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition Service Pack 2 (build 3790)
They have been using this same for the past 6-7 years. Since the initial installation, my client has moved offices twice - Murphy's Law, some where in these moves their installation copy was lost. Now, we want to move to a newer hardware platform and we need the installation CDs to install the "Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard Edition".
Why don't we move to the latest version of Windows Server?
> Good question. My client is a property management company and as such, they use a vintage property management software application that is ONLY supported on this version of Windows Server - Of course it is.
So, how can my client get a replacement for the missing installation CD?
NOTE: I have Google this question and there are third party vendors who will replace the CDs but at the full retail price. Since we have a valid Product Key, we are hoping to pay for a replacement set + shipment.
Any Secrets as to how to get these replaced?
Inquiring minds would REALLY like to know...
