Thinking outside the box.

Can you put in a complaint under Australian Consumer Law (ACL).


Basically they are failing to honour your original agreement.

So ask for a refund/replacement under ACL.

Seems like you are in a bind for as long as your dispute with Microsoft remains 
unresolved. I wish I could help you more.

Notwithstanding, it clearly states that a "Product Key" is not required nor is 
one available!

My experience has been that once my subscription expired, I could no longer log 
in to the MSDN site to get my previous product keys.

From memory, if you login to the MSDN subscriber site, you can still get access 
to your old keys (though I could be wrong about that)

Subject: Expired MSDN Subscription - Transfer of VS to a new machine


I'm currently in a dispute with Microsoft in that I have been unable to 
"activate" my licence as they claim I have "exceeded" my activations.
All I want to do is move my VS2013 installation from my old PC to a new PC.

My MSDN subscription expired some time ago however I'm supposed to have a 
perpetual licence. At least that's how I understood it.

They are also adamant that I need a Product Key. Product Keys have never been 
needed/available for VS2013 and above when acquired via a MSDN subscription.

Has any one else ever run into this brick wall?
