Good Day Everyone-\nI am trying to install an MSDN version 2003 Std R2 over a VL 2003 SP2. When\nI enter the key, I get the error: "The product key you entered is not valid.\nPlease type a valid product key"\n\nI am using the MSDN for testing purposes, and will buy whatever key is\nrequired if my testing goes well. I have 2 questions.\n1. Why wonâ€™t the MSDN install? According to\n[URL]http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912309[/URL] it should install, but it does not.\n\n2. What "Channel" do I need to purchase the license from? According to the\nabove kb, one would think either VL or Retail, but after not seeing the MSDN\nwork, I am not sure and really don't want to get stuck with an extra useless\ncopy of R2.\n\nI may just need to find an alternative to DFS (What we are testing for).\n\nThanks all.
