How Many Activations Do I Have Left On My Licence Keys?

To find out this information you’d normally have to go through the pain in the arse that is “telephoning Microsoft”.

Far easier though is to import the keys into the Volume Activation Management Tool (VAMT) and use it to check online with Microsoft over the Interweb.

VAMT is part of the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (Windows ADK) and can be downloaded for nothing from:

Simply import the relevant keys and use the “Refresh product key data online” to retrieve the number of activations left.
