MSDN limit on number of keys?

Hi guys whats up. So in MSDN i am trying to DL windows 7 but i just have a question. You guys (MSDN subscribers ) have any idea on how many keys i can generate? because i accidentlly clicked the generate key twice and it gave me two keys . Thats not a problem is it? And also can these keys be used multiple times? so if i reformat can i use the same key instead of requesting for a new one?

I know little about MSDN, assuming you are not talking about MSND-AA. I'd say 10 keys per product and yes you could use them multiple times.

Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, likely thinking of TechNet.

No its not MSDN-AA..i think. Well it part of the BizSpark program. Thats good that i can use them multiple times though.(like install using the same key on my comp and my bros?) Anyone else got any more info?

The keys work like normal keys You should be able to reinstall on the same hardware using the same key a small number of times before requiring or waiting months for a reset.

For MSDN you should get 10 keys that has been the standard in the past, thoughI currently do not have an MSDN account so I can't verify.

Basically they give you 10 keys because they don't want you calling and bothering them about needing to reset a key when they know you are going to be installing and reinstalling OSes for testing a lot (Either serially or in parallel).

But I don't think the same key is going to work on two different computers at the same time. At least not for long.

Oh i see, well its Ok i guess no big deal. ANd its 10 keys per OS right? and also do Ultimate keys work with enterprise/home premium versions on windows 7?

And also guys, any idea how to get MSDN to ship certain programs instead of me downloading them? i cant seem to find the option, anyway ill ask around on MSDN.

Only ultimate and Entrerprise use the same keys...

On Technet there's a subscription option for receive the DVDs and boxes of the products...
