MCCA License Activation Issues

The newer Windows and Office programs use Microsoft’s Software Protection Platform with activation through the campus KMS server. KMS is the method you would use to activate this software on a computer that is regularly connected (after initial activation this means every 180 days) to the HSSEAS or UCLA network.  A license key will automatically be assigned to your copy – an individual key is no longer needed.  Should you experience a problem with the assignment of a license key, you can force the activation manually.  This should only be done in the event that activation has not been successful.  Please see the instruction for manual activation.

What are ISO image files and how do I use them?

Many products are posted as ISO-9660 image files. An ISO-9660 image file is an exact representation of a CD or DVD, including the content and the logical format. The most common use of an image file is to write it to a blank CD-R or DVD-R, resulting in an identical copy of the original disc including file name and volume label information. ISO image files may also be opened and their contents copied to a local folder, much like ZIP files. ISO files may also be virtually mounted and accessed as a device. These three methods of using ISO images are described below. Note: you may have to rename the file extension from .IMG or .UDF to .ISO, depending on your software.

License Keys

If your software requires a license key it will be automatically emailed to your SEASnet account.
