        Many customer deployment scenarios begin with testing on an operating system acquired through an MSDN subscription. Once the test is successfully executed, the decision may be made to simply move these systems from the development or test environment into production. This white paper presents product activation options for some common transition scenarios. The guidance focuses on Windows client and server licenses sold through volume licensing. This includes Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2.
