  • There are two ways to find out if a Key is valid.

    1) Install it, run an MGADiag report, and post the report in these forums for analysis - although we can't tell whether a specific Key is valid or not, we can usually spot if it's likely to become non-genuine in the future, even if it passes all current tests (including #2)

    2) telephone your local Activation Center and see if they will tell you if the Key has ever been activated, and anything else they are prepared to let you know.
