MICROSOFT – PLEASE READ!!

Some districts are having issues with key codes. Please read below for the process to solve the problem expediently.

We know that from time to time some of you experience an issue with Microsoft Volume License Activation or License Keys.  There can be a few reasons why this may occur, but whichever one may be the cause of your situation, you will probably need some assistance to troubleshoot it. Usually the solution is simple though, and the first step is to contact Matt Ingenito, matting@cdw.com, at CDW-G, or have your CDW-G Account Manager contact him for you.  If you are having any trouble with Microsoft Volume Licensing Keys or Volume Activation, they will be able to get you back on track quickly.

As a reminder, Matt Ingenito and his counterpart, Scott Horvath, scott.horvath@s3.cdw.com, are your dedicated resources for Microsoft Licensing questions and needs in general. Please contact them directly or through your CDW-G Account Manager for anything on the topic of Microsoft Licensing.
