In my earlier, “Activating your Open Value Software Assurance benefits, step by step (Part 1)” post, I walked you through how to get your Software Assurance benefits activated on the MVLS website and the steps needed to be taken by the person who receives your volume license notices and the Software Assurance Benefits Administrator. In this post, I’ll walk you through the steps to activate and distribute several of the individual benefits themselves, such as: Microsoft eLearning, Home Use Program, Employee Purchase Program, Microsoft Training Vouchers, Microsoft Windows Pre-Installation (WinPE), and Virtual PC Express (with Vista Enterprise). Be sure you have completed the steps in Part 1 first so you can see your benefits on the MVLS website.
First, go to Microsoft Volume License Services (MVLS) at https://licensing.microsoft.com to begin activating your Software Assurance benefits and select the employees you authorize to use those benefits. For each benefit, please follow the instructions below:
HOME USE PROGRAM
EMPLOYEE PURCHASE PROGRAM
MICROSOFT TRAINING VOUCHERS
MICROSOFT WINDOWS PRE-INSTALLATION (WinPE)
VIRTUAL PC EXPRESS
Need help activating your benefits? Let us know.
You can also download a 1-Page (double-sided) Software Assurance Activation Guide in PDF format which contains this information for your use offline.
