Quick Byte: Microsoft Licensing # 10

Validation? Some may not be aware, but your Microsoft software may occasionally need to be validated – meaning you will have to download the validation feature of your software so Microsoft can be sure that you have activated and licensed your copy properly. Ouch! Yet another reason why licensing and activation are an important part of implementing any software application.

During the process, the product keys are checked along with the IP address of the device it’s being used on. No getting around this one!

So what happens if something isn’t right? Basically, you won’t be able to use your software properly and Microsoft will hound you until you have properly activated and installed the software.

There is nothing more annoying than when you are trying to use a program and it won’t let you do anything that you need to except maybe type!
