    I am getting this round my school also, its the only product key I can remember by heart which I have used for years.

    I think I only used it when I needed to input one manually, I used my new one from VL in my sysprep file.

    We have just had this start happening to us!!

    I phoned ramesys up who have said that it is a known issue that has started happening due to leaked keys.

    They are emailling me a new key as we speak!

    Ramesys have some explaining to do IMO, how can you expect a key not to be leaked when your giving it out to every bloody customer

    at least 2 Resellers were given this key and had used it on many school installs...

    Ramesys will be to blame tbh, we used them years ago before they screwed all our lics up and back then our VL account could access and see every other account our account manager was using and see what they were lic'ed for. They obviously didnt have a clue how to use the MS lic site and borked everything. We are now with Pugh and have never had an issue yet.

    But Microsoft don't issue that key to you so they have no way of contacting you - they can contact Ramesys (or whoever) and it's them up to them to contact the people they allowed to use that key.
