Have you installed a Windows or Office license but do not know what license it is? Here we will explain how to understand which Windows or Office license is installed in the PC.

HOW TO UNDERSTAND WHICH WINDOWS OR OFFICE LICENSE IS INSTALLED ON THE PC?

To understand what type of Windows license is installed on your computer, simply follow a simple procedure. Specifically, just press the Windows + R key combination and then type:

slmgr.vbs -dlv

After pressing Enter, after a few instants the Windows Script Host screen will come out, where, next to the item Product Key Channel, the type of Windows license in use will be clearly indicated.
Speech is a bit ‘more complicated regarding Office. In this case, in fact, to understand what type of Office license is installed in the computer, you must first open the command prompt as an administrator, then you have to launch a special command that changes depending on the case. To do so, press the Windows + R key combination, type cmd, and then press Ctrl + Shift+ Enter, answering yes to an eventual confirmation. At this point, if you use Windows 32 bit + Office 32 bit or Windows 64 bit + Office 64 bit you have to run the following command:

cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs" /dstatus

Otherwise, if you are using Windows 64 bit + Office 32 bit, you need to run the following command instead:

cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\Office16\ospp.vbs" /dstatus

Once you press Enter, to find out what type of Office license you have installed on your PC, simply check the LICENSE DESCRIPTION item next to it:

check-office-2016-product-key-with-command

However, I would point out that if your version of Office is not 2016 then you will have to replace the 16 present on the right of Office in the above commands with the appropriate number of your version of Office and re-launch the relevant command. For example, if your version of Office is 2013 you will have to run the following command in case you use Windows 32 bit + Office 32 bit or Windows 64 bit + Office 64:

cscript "%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office15\ospp.vbs"/ dstatus

Otherwise, if your version of Office is always 2013 but using Windows 64 bit + Office 32 bit, you will have to run the following command instead:

cscript "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\ Office15\ospp.vbs"/ dstatus

The same is true for all other versions of Office where, as already mentioned, we only need to change the number on the right of Office in the above-mentioned commands with the relevant number of your version of Office. At this point, however, you should have finally figured out how to understand which Windows or Office license is installed on your PC.
