Hi guys,
I bought Windows Vista Ultimate of ebay in October this year..the version with the 64bit disc included. It is in a case with a manual inside, it was shrink wrapped when I got it and activated fine with the included sticker inside. Now just recently I went to apply for the Windows 7 upgrade and Microsoft tells me that I have a "MSDN" license. Now I was under the impression that MSDN software is downloaded as an image and Microsoft send you a key, is this correct?. Is there anyway I can tell exactly what license I have?. I ran the WGA diagnostics program and said 5- Retail. I have spoken to 2 separate officers at Microsoft and they both say the same thing, can someone put me out my misery..I thought I payed for the proper version and am concerned that I have been raped.
