Product key is missing or do you need a new one?
According to the agreement with Microsoft, the University cannot disclose any product keys.
When you download software, the interface is similar to a web marketplace. In the download process, a product key comes visible. Remember that all product keys are personal. Please write down the product key because you will need it during installation to confirm your eligibility for installation. If you lose the key, you can retrieve it in the same place where you downloaded the software.
If you have used a product key and need a new one, you can request it through the Microsoft Imagine interface. You can't request product keys directly from the University. If you request a key through Microsoft Imagine, the University system will get the necessary information needed to issue a new key.
If you want to request a new product key, follow these steps:
- Please log in.
- Click the Software button.
- Now click on My software in the left menu.
- You'll see a list of all the programs you've downloaded.
- Find the software in the list and click on download.
- The system recognizes if you have used your product key.
a) If the product key is used up, you will see the button Request Additional Download. Click on it and you'll get to a form where you can re-select the software and you must submit some additional information.
b) If the product key is not used, you will not see the button Request Additional downloads. Instead, you will see a product key or the text the product key is not required.
