    Our group was using the trial version of VS 2008 Professional edition. It is installed on a remote virtual machine so we can’t load the media directly. We just purchased the media and now want to upgrade to our ‘real’ version. But there is no product key information of the CDs. How do we get this information?

    If you purchased VS08 Pro, then the Product Key should be on a sticker on the inside of the box.  The stickers are usually yellow, and have a 25-letter/digit key that you can enter.  If you follow Jake’s instructions, you should be able to upgrade.  If not, let me know and I’ll see what I can do to help you out.
