How to order a Windows license?

NB: You can order Windows OS License service only when the virtual data center is on (status Active).

Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard and Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard licenses are available.

1. In your Personal Account go to Windows OS License page. Click Order.

2. Select the payment terms (one month, three months, six months, one year). Click Order.

3. Select license type and number. Click Add to Cart.

4. If all the settings are correct, click Pay. Further follow the instructions of the panel.

5. After your payment is made the license activation process will begin. When it is finished on Windows License page the status will read Active.

7. Now, launch the virtual machine from the corresponding template:

  • WIN2012R2-ENG LIC (Windows 2012 R2 English)
  • WIN2012R2-RUS LIC (Windows 2012 R2 Russian)
  • WIN2008R2-STD-ENG LIC (Windows 2008 R2 Standard English)
