Windows product validation before installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I work for a fairly large online retail company and we have a policy that the customer is always right, this results in a very large quantity of returned software, much of it Windows operating systems.  The problem is, much of this software is opened but we have no way to know if it has been used and returned, or just opened and returned.  Aside from calling Microsoft tech support and verifying each product key to see if it has been used (I have well over 100 for this week)  Is there an easier/faster way to check to see if a serial number has been used on an individual license of Microsoft software?
