I installed Visual Studio 2013 Professional as a Trial version while waiting for my company to complete the license purchase.
They completed the purchase of 4 licenses (64 bit), but were not given
Product Keys. Instead, there is a particular
.iso file with the license or product key embedded in some way.
I want to avoid having to uninstall Visual Studio 2013 only to reinstall Visual Studio 2013 and re-setup all my settings. Is this possible? Is there a way to extract the license/product key from the
.iso or from other coworkers desktops that did a clean install?
Here is what I have tried (with 2 coworker installations):
Looking for the license info in:
but it is unique on both computers.
Looking for the Product Key in:
One install had one, which my install said was invalid when attempting to use it. The other install had a blank
SW_DVD5_Visual_Studio_Pro_2013_English_MLF_X19-20996.ISObut I see no mention of a License or Product Key.
Help > Register Productin Visual Studio, which simply says
License: Product key applied
Tried doing an install/repair from the ISO but it says:
The product version that you are trying to set up is earlier than the version already installed on this computer.
Likely because of the Visual Studio 2013 Update 1 and 2
Again, I would really like to avoid the multi-hour process of reinstalling VS 2013. Is there any way?
