Finding the Serial Number to Activate Windows OS on Microsoft Imagine

Once you download Windows through Microsoft Imagine, you will prompted to enter a product key to activate it. This will require the serial number given during the initial download of the software. This document will walk through where to find it.

NOTE: This applies to the old Microsoft Imagine program. As this is no longer available, and Microsoft Azure does not offer Windows downloads, this page is only for reference to those who previously downloaded Windows from Imagine. It does not apply to Windows downloaded from the Campus Software Library.

1. Navigate to the Microsoft Imagine page. To get here, you can follow the link "Microsoft Imagine" from your CAE Account Management Page.

2. If you have already downloaded Windows or any other software, it will be under "Your Account" at the top of the page. This is shown below.

3. Once you are in the "Your Account" page, you should see the Windows download. Click on this.
    You will now be at the page with the necessary information. The location of the serial number is shown below (the Xs are placeholders, not a real code).
