Windows 7: License

License

I have purchased volume OEM licenses for Win 7. I received a package which has a carboard outer sleeve with a barcode that isn't very clear on how many licenses are included. I have an idea of what it says but can anybody clarify? (1 Pk, 30 Pk)
Thanks

I think that computer plus is correct, but why guess. Give a call to the merchant that sold it to you.

If you exceed your limit, you will be notified quickly.

Actually if what I received is right I got the best deal this year. Too bad when I picked it up they had a bunch in a box and just handed me one and said "there you go" I asked the sales clerk about confirming how Microsoft labeled 7 and she said I dont know, I would guess it's what you ordered.

I've never known Microsoft's labeling to be vague or "blurry". This sounds like you got conned into buying a bootleg copy of a disc. I can assure you didn't get 30 legal licenses for less than a few thousand dollars.

Thats what I am trying to figure out MacGyvr. It is definelty Microsoft product but when the clerk couldn't decipher this one... Here is how the label reads "WIN ULTIMATE 7 64-BIT 30 PK". The 64 bit was for a specific customer so thats not a problem but I have an order in for a bunch more PRO singles and want to ensure that what I am getting is what I ordered. Imagine somebodies shock that ordered a 30 pack and only gets one....

If the clerk did not help. Microsoft is known for helpful reps. Giving them a call may help.
