  • View all agreements or purchases in your organization.

  • Easily access a licensing summary that illustrates all entitlements by product and version.

  • View all assigned product keys and download products.

Ready to manage your volume licenses?

The VLSC enables you to access your licensing information in one place. To use it, just go to the Volume Licensing Service Center page and click Sign in.


Before you use the VLSC, make sure that you have an up-to-date browser installed. The Volume Licensing Service Center was designed to work best with Microsoft Internet Explorer.


Also, you’ll need a valid business email address and a Microsoft account to register to use the VLSC and access licensing information. The business email address must be the same one that is listed on your volume license agreement. If you do not have a Microsoft account, you can sign up for one for free. When you register to use the VLSC, you’ll need to you validate your business email address by using links that will be provided in an invitation email from Microsoft. If you need additional help, contact your Microsoft Regional Service Center.
