Valid PID? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently purchased a copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and am now concerned that the PID I have has a value within it of 068. Does this mean it's one of the MSDN keys that have been sold on as Retail packaging? The packaging has Made in USA on the top of the box. Details below:

    It's an MSDN Key in use here - if you're a member of MSDN/TechNet/BizSpark, then it may be valid. If you bought it, then it certainly won't be, even if ii activates and validates at the moment.
