Question about product registration
by magnifan - 2/27/10 7:39 AM
It's been a while since I've been on the forum. I'm stumped and I remembered how helpful CNET forums have been for me in the past.
Forgive me if I'm not posting in exactly the right place. I figured under software, subcategory design software was the closest.
I am selling visual studio 2008 but I want to be legit about it. I worked for a company that bought us our laptops and all of our software and we would install everything ourselves and at each 1 year mark we would have the opportunity to purchase our pc and what's on it at a discounted price and they would purchase a new one for you to work on. Since it was a software company with a lot of developers (not including yours truly, as I was in sales) they wanted us to stay up to date on the latest MS OS, Office products and developing tools. While I was there I took some interest in learning how to do some advanced web design and I started learning flash and wanted to learn Visual Studio. Since our company already bought many copies of this I asked for it to learn and was provided a copy. When I purchased the computer they knew I took VS with me along with office08 and vista pro.
Now I have no reason to have VS and I've since installed Win7 on my machine, I want to sell it. The only thing is I want to know about transferring the product or if I even registered it to begin with. I've googled all sorts of things and can only find a FAQ that doesn't answer my question. After all this typing and explaining, my small question is, can someone help me with a more intuitive site that may let me put in numbers off my disc with my product key to check whether I ran the registration process through to an end or possibly call a number and speak with a someone who could help me? I still have the plastic swing open case, all three pamphlets within it, the disc and my product key. Obviously a real developer would benefit from registering such a product and I wouldn't want to prevent someone from doing that if I've sold it to them.
To anyone reading and or replying, thanks for your time and possible help.
