Windows 10 (21H2 / November 2021 Update or earlier) and Outlook

Windows 10 buttonThinking about upgrading your computer to Windows 10 or are you using Outlook on a Windows 10 computer already and are being offered a major Windows 10 update?

What should you be aware of when you heavily rely on Outlook?

The upgrade process from Windows 7 and Windows 8 is actually quite streamlined and trouble free for most configurations. Things are even easier when applying a major update to Windows 10. However, for either upgrade, there are still a couple of attention points before you start.

This guide contains not only upgrade preparation and troubleshooting steps but also various tips about the changes that you could encounter involving Outlook after upgrading to Windows 10.


Is your Outlook version compatible with Windows 10?

Windows 10 Compatible logoOfficially, only Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016, Office 2019, Office 2021 (+LTSC) and Microsoft 365 are supported to run on Windows 10.

However, before even starting Outlook 2013 on Windows 10, make sure you first apply at least Service Pack 1 for Office 2013 and any additional updates. This takes care of some known compatibility issues.

Of course it is always wise to stay current with the latest update releases, so make sure you set Windows Update to also include updates for other Microsoft applications. Microsoft 365 installations (including Office 2016 Retail, Office 2019 and Office 2021) will automatically keep themselves up-to-date but you can always check for updates manually.

Continuing to use Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007, or even earlier versions, really isn’t recommended (on any version of Windows that is) as these versions are out of extended support. These versions of Office are vulnerable for various security issues for which updates haven’t been made available anymore.

Upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8

When you are upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, then you can do an actual in-place upgrade as long as you are upgrading to the same Windows Edition (Home, Professional or Enterprise). If you were using Windows 7 Ultimate, then you can upgrade to Windows 10 Professional. Windows 7 Start users can upgrade to Windows 10 Home.

Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8 - Ready to install
When you are upgrading to the same Windows Edition, everything will migrated.

Programs, files and settings will then be migrated automatically to Windows 10 and after upgrading you can directly logon to Windows 10 and start Outlook with all its files and settings in place; just like you left it in Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Nevertheless, it is still good practice to make a proper backup (not just of Outlook, but preferably your entire computer) and write down your account settings before starting the upgrade process. In these cases it really is better to be safe than sorry.

When doing an in-place upgrade, it will automatically run the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. This tool will indicate which drivers and applications you need to uninstall or update before or after the installation process. This will increase the speed of the upgrade, its chance of success and decrease the chance of ending up with broken applications or other troubleshooting requirements.

A common application that you’ll need to uninstall on Windows 7 is Microsoft Security Essentials. There is no need to install this afterwards as Windows 10 has the features of Microsoft Security Essentials built-in in the form of Windows Security (which replaced Windows Defender).

Note:
If you did not format your PC before upgrading but did choose to do a clean install, you may also be able to find back your original Outlook data under:

  • Outlook 2007 and previous
  • Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016 and Microsoft 365

Updating Windows 10 to the latest version of Windows 10

Windows 10 Update Assistant buttonWhen you already have Windows 10, then the latest version of Windows 10 is always being offered via Windows Update.

However, when a major update for Windows 10 has just been released, it may not yet be offered to you via Windows Update as Microsoft doesn’t distribute the update to everyone at once.

Doing a manual search for updates will usually give you the option to install it unless there is a blocker specific for your configuration (like when incompatible hardware is detected).

Optional updates availabe - Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2

If you are not yet being offered the latest version of Windows 10 via Windows Update but you already want to update anyway, then you can initiate the update via the Windows 10 Update Assistant.

Microsoft 365 Activation not valid

Microsoft 365 buttonWhen you have a Microsoft 365 license and start Outlook or any other of the Office applications for the first time after the upgrade, you may be prompted to log on with your Microsoft Account again to re-activate your installation or receive a warning that your license is no longer valid.

In case of the last, the solution to this annoying issue is luckily easy and fixed within minutes; Run a Quick Repair on your Office installation.

To do this, make sure all your Office applications are closed, and choose;
Start-> Settings-> Apps-> select your Microsoft 365 or Office application-> button Modify-> option Quick Repair.

Office Repair; How would you like to repair your Office programs? Quick Repair / Online Repair
When encountering Office issues after upgrading to Windows 10, doing a Quick Repair might solve it.

Add-in Compatibility

Add-Ins buttonIf you are using any add-ins with Outlook, make sure they are also compatible with Windows 10. You’ll probably find that most of them are compatible as Windows 10 is in that aspect similar to Windows 7 and Windows 8 and most of the compatibility requirements for add-ins are coming from Outlook and not from Windows.

Still, since add-ins are not limited to operate just within Outlook and with Outlook data, it is a good thing to check with the vendor of the add-in first.

If you are having startup issues with Outlook after upgrading, disabling your add-ins would be a good first troubleshooting step.

Virus scanner integration

Windows Security buttonEven though Windows 10 has its own virus scanner in the form of Windows Security, you might opt to install a 3rd party virus scanner instead. When installing your virus scanner, make sure you do not install any Outlook integration components. This is not specific to Windows 10 or any Outlook version but a general best practice for Outlook.

There are many known issues caused by having a virus scanner integrated with Outlook. These issues range from poor Outlook performance to send receive errors and from corrupted emails to complete data loss.

You can safely disable this integration part of your virus scanner without compromising your security; you’d still be sufficiently protected by your on-access scanner part of the virus
scanner.

Send/Receive error: 0x800CCC13

Send/Receive Broken buttonWhen you try to send a message, you could receive the following error:

Error message: ‘Robert – Sending’ reported error (0x800CCC13): ‘Cannot connect to the network. Verify your network connection or modem’

While the exact cause for this issue is unknown, to fix it you must run “sfc /scannow” from an elevated Command Prompt and reboot your computer afterwards;

  1. Right click on the Start button of Windows and choose: Windows PowerShell (Admin).
    • If you don’t see this, instead choose: Command Prompt (Admin)
  2. Behind the prompt type:
    (note the space in the command)
  3. Wait until the process completes. This usually doesn’t take longer than 20 minutes with a regular hard disk and takes much shorter when you have a fast SSD drive.
  4. Restart your computer.

PST File access is denied

PST Access Denied buttonUpon starting Outlook, you may receive the following error message:

Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file
C:\Users\Robert\Documents\Outlook Files\Robert.pst.

In that case, you’ll need to adjust the file permissions for the pst-file that is referenced and grant yourself “Full Control” permissions.

  1. Browse to the file location as indicated in the error.
  2. Right click on the file and choose Properties.
  3. Select the Security tab.
  4. Press the Edit… button.
  5. Select your user account.
  6. Select the “Full control” permission.
  7. Press OK until all dialogs are closed.
  8. Start Outlook again.

Permissions for Robert.pst - Full control
Give yourself Full Control to your pst-file.

Tip!
When you are suffering from this issue, it may be wise to reset the permissions for your entire user folder. For detailed steps how to do that see: PST File access is denied after upgrading to Windows 10

iCloud doesn’t work

iCloud buttonDo you have the iCloud add-in installed? It may not work anymore after upgrading to Windows 10. To solve this, remove iCloud from your mail profile, repair the iCloud installation and then re-add the iCloud configuration to Outlook again via iCloud Control Panel.

  1. File-> Account Settings-> Account Settings…-> tab Data Files
  2. Select the iCloud data file and press Remove.
  3. If you also connected to the iCloud account via IMAP, remove this account.
  4. Close Outlook.
  5. Open the iCloud Control Panel via the Start Menu and uncheck the option: Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Task with Outlook.
  6. Download and install the latest version of iCloud from the Apple website or Microsoft Store.
    • When you already have the latest version installed, choose the Repair option.
  7. Reboot when being prompted to do so by the iCloud installer.
  8. Open the iCloud Control Panel via the Start Menu and select the option: Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Task with Outlook.
    • If this is a new installation of iCloud, iCloud may prompt you to run a repair on the iCloud installation again and reboot. Outlook integration will be available then.
  9. Start Outlook and let iCloud resync your data.

No new email notifications

Action Center buttonIf you no longer get any New Email Notifications, then click on the Action Center icon in the bottom right corner of your Taskbar to see your past notifications including emails from Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016, Outlook 2019, Outlook 2021 and Outlook as part of a Microsoft 365 subscription.

To get the New Email Notification banner again for each email that you receive;

  1. In the Action Center, in the top right click on: Manage notifications.
    • An alternative method is;
      Start-> Settings-> System-> from the Navigation Panel on the left choose: Notifications & actions.
  2. In the “Get notifications from these senders” section at the bottom, click on Outlook.
  3. Make sure that you have enabled all notification options which you want to get (“Hide content when notification are on lock screen” is off by default) and select how many notifications should be visible in the Action Center.
  4. Close Settings.

Default Notification Settings for Outlook in Windows 10.
Default Notification Settings for Outlook on Windows 10.

Note:
Outlook will only show New Email Alerts when the message is delivered to the Inbox folder. To make it show an alert even when the message is automatically moved to another folder by a Message Rule see the guide Creating a permanent New Mail Desktop Alert.

Rebuild search index / no search results

Search Outlook buttonAfter the upgrade to Windows 10 has finished, you might notice that no search results are being returned when you use the Search field in Outlook.

The first solution to this is: Wait!

In most cases, Windows Search still needs to re-index your Outlook content (and the rest of your computer) and will fix itself eventually when the computer is idle.

If results are still not being returned after you’ve left your computer idle for an extended period of time (like for instance overnight), then you can use the following troubleshooting guide: Fixing Instant Search.

Pictures not showing and “Work file” error

Broken Pictures buttonAfter upgrading, you might encounter an issue where pictures from the Internet might not be downloading into the message or that you get an error which reads;

Outlook could not create the work file. Check the TEMP environment variable.

Solving this issue is 2-fold and requires editing the Registry;

  1. Reset the registry value for the location of the “Temporary Internet Files” folder to default.
  2. Delete the registry entry for the “SecureTempFolder” in Outlook

Step 1
The Registry entry for the Temporary Internet Files folder can be found here;

  • Value name:
  • Key name:
  • Value type:

Here, verify that the location for that key is set to;

Step 2
Outlook uses a subfolder in the Temporary Internet Files folder to write its temp files which are retrieved from the Internet. For instance; linked pictures and attachments. To make sure a proper folder is being created, we reset the reference to this folder so that Outlook will recreate the registry entry and folder automatically the next time is needs to be used.

  • Value name:
  • Key name:
  • Value type:

Delete the key name. If the key name is not there, you’re ok already.

Now restart your computer for the changes to take effect and try again.

For more information about the SecureTempFolder for Outlook see the guide:
Error opening attachments / Cleaning out the Temporary Outlook Files folder.

Scan for and fix more issues with SaRA

SaRA buttonIf you are still having issues now, or even if you haven’t, use the “Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant” (SaRA) to scan for a specific issue or your entire Outlook configuration for any known issues that can cause problems.

After the scan completes, SaRA offers you to fix the issue if it was successful detecting the cause of the issue.

Via Advanced Diagnostics, SaRA can do a full scan of your Outlook configuration and will create a detailed report of all Outlook issues it detected. For any problems that are listed in the report, you are provided with a link to an article about that specific problem so that you can read about possible fixes.

SaRA may also find some issues that you didn’t know about yet and/or already had before upgrading to Windows 10.

Download: Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant (SaRA)

Clean install or upgrade has failed

Windows 10 - Clean installDid the upgrade fail and/or do you want to do a clean install of Windows 10 on a new or formatted disk?

During the setup process, when being prompted for what to keep, choose for the “Nothing” option. Of course, this means that you need to have a backup of all data that you wish to keep and restore that afterwards.

You can also download the Download Windows 10 to create a bootable USB-based installation media or burn to a DVD and boot your computer with.

    office 2013 suddenly says activation failed: what causes this, and what is the solution? I think that this installation of office was activated with a MAK key, which is supposed to be a permanent activation. 51669
Источник: https://www.windowsphoneinfo.com/

So like many others I refused to pay for windows 10 and decided to activate it using Microsoft Toolkit. I have done the activation process many times before without any issues because every so often you need to reactivate. It came time to reactivate it again so I did the same process I've always done, installing AutoKMS and using EZ Activator but for some reason now it keeps failing and I get an error message that reads as follows -

"The Software Licensing Service reported that the product could not be activated. No Key Management Service (KMS) could be contacted. Please see the Application Event Log for additional information.
<Product activation failed>"

I don't understand what has changed as I have activated Windows this way countless times but all of a sudden it just won't work. In my windows activation settings it also has an error message that reads -

"We can't activate Windows on this device as we can't connect to your organizations activation server."

Any solutions to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 10 (21H2 / November 2021 Update or earlier) and Outlook

Windows 10 buttonThinking about upgrading your computer to Windows 10 or are you using Outlook on a Windows 10 computer already and are being offered a major Windows 10 update?

What should you be aware of when you heavily rely on Outlook?

The upgrade process from Windows 7 and Windows 8 is actually quite streamlined and trouble free for most configurations. Things are even easier when applying a major update to Windows 10. However, for either upgrade, there are still a couple of attention points before you start.

This guide contains not only upgrade preparation and troubleshooting steps but also various tips about the changes that you could encounter involving Outlook after upgrading to Windows 10.


Is your Outlook version compatible with Windows 10?

Windows 10 Compatible logoOfficially, only Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016, Office 2019, Office 2021 (+LTSC) and Microsoft 365 are supported to run on Windows 10.

However, before even starting Outlook 2013 on Windows 10, make sure you first apply at least Service Pack 1 for Office 2013 and any additional updates. This takes care of some known compatibility issues.

Of course it is always wise to stay current with the latest update releases, so make sure you set Windows Update to also include updates for other Microsoft applications. Microsoft 365 installations (including Office 2016 Retail, Office 2019 and Office 2021) will automatically keep themselves up-to-date but you can always check for updates manually.

Continuing to use Outlook 2010, Outlook 2007, or even earlier versions, really isn’t recommended (on any version of Windows that is) as these versions are out of extended support. These versions of Office are vulnerable for various security issues for which updates haven’t been made available anymore.

Upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8

When you are upgrading from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, then you can do an actual in-place upgrade as long as you are upgrading to the same Windows Edition (Home, Professional or Enterprise). If you were using Windows 7 Ultimate, then you can upgrade to Windows 10 Professional. Windows 7 Start users can upgrade to Windows 10 Home.

Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8 - Ready to install
When you are upgrading to the same Windows Edition, everything will migrated.

Programs, files and settings will then be migrated automatically to Windows 10 and after upgrading you can directly logon to Windows 10 and start Outlook with all its files and settings in place; just like you left it in Windows 7 or Windows 8.

Nevertheless, it is still good practice to make a proper backup (not just of Outlook, but preferably your entire computer) and write down your account settings before starting the upgrade process. In these cases it really is better to be safe than sorry.

When doing an in-place upgrade, it will automatically run the Windows 10 Upgrade Assistant. This tool will indicate which drivers and applications you need to uninstall or update before or after the installation process. This will increase the speed of the upgrade, its chance of success and decrease the chance of ending up with broken applications or other troubleshooting requirements.

A common application that you’ll need to uninstall on Windows 7 is Microsoft Security Essentials. There is no need to install this afterwards as Windows 10 has the features of Microsoft Security Essentials built-in in the form of Windows Security (which replaced Windows Defender).

Note:
If you did not format your PC before upgrading but did choose to do a clean install, you may also be able to find back your original Outlook data under:

  • Outlook 2007 and previous
  • Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016 and Microsoft 365

Updating Windows 10 to the latest version of Windows 10

Windows 10 Update Assistant buttonWhen you already have Windows 10, then the latest version of Windows 10 is always being offered via Windows Update.

However, when a major update for Windows 10 has just been released, it may not yet be offered to you via Windows Update as Microsoft doesn’t distribute the update to everyone avast premier 2019 license file download - Crack Key For U once.

Doing a manual search for updates will usually give you the option to install it unless there is a blocker specific for your configuration (like when incompatible hardware is detected).

Optional updates availabe - Feature update to Windows 10, version 20H2

If you are not yet being offered the latest version of Windows 10 via Windows Update but you already want to update anyway, then you can initiate the update via the Windows 10 Update Assistant.

Microsoft 365 Activation not valid

Microsoft 365 buttonWhen you have a Microsoft 365 license and start Outlook or any other of the Office applications for the first time after the upgrade, you may be prompted to log on with your Microsoft Account again to re-activate your installation or receive a warning that your license is no longer valid.

In case of the last, the solution to this annoying issue is luckily easy and fixed within minutes; Run a Quick Repair on your Office installation.

To do this, make sure all your Office applications are closed, and choose;
Start-> Settings-> Apps-> select your Microsoft 365 or Office application-> button Modify-> option Quick Repair.

Office Repair; How would you like to repair your Office programs? Quick Repair / Online Repair
When encountering Office issues after upgrading to Windows 10, doing a Quick Repair might solve it.

Add-in Compatibility

Add-Ins buttonIf you are using any add-ins with Outlook, make sure they are also compatible with Windows 10. You’ll probably find that most of them are compatible as Windows 10 is in that aspect similar to Windows 7 and Windows 8 and most of the compatibility requirements for add-ins are coming from Outlook and not from Windows.

Still, since add-ins are not limited to operate just within Outlook and with Outlook data, it is a good thing to check with the vendor of the add-in first.

If you are having startup issues with Outlook after upgrading, disabling your add-ins would be a good first troubleshooting step.

Virus scanner integration

Windows Security buttonEven though Windows 10 has its own virus scanner in the form of Windows Security, you might opt to install a 3rd party virus scanner instead. When installing your virus scanner, make sure you do not install any Outlook integration components. This is not specific to Windows 10 or any Outlook version but a general best practice for Outlook.

There are many known issues caused by having a virus scanner integrated with Outlook. These issues range from poor Outlook performance to send receive errors and from corrupted emails to complete data loss.

You can safely disable this integration part of your virus scanner without compromising your security; you’d still be sufficiently protected by your on-access scanner part of the virus
scanner.

Send/Receive error: 0x800CCC13

Send/Receive Broken buttonWhen you try to send a message, you could receive the following error:

Error message: ‘Robert – Sending’ reported error (0x800CCC13): ‘Cannot connect to the network. Verify your network connection or modem’

While the exact cause for this issue is unknown, to fix it you must run “sfc /scannow” from an elevated Command Prompt and reboot your computer afterwards;

  1. Right click on the Start button of Windows and choose: Windows PowerShell (Admin).
    • If you don’t see this, instead choose: Command Prompt (Admin)
  2. Behind the prompt type:
    (note the space in the command)
  3. Wait until the process completes. This usually doesn’t take longer than 20 minutes with a regular hard disk and takes much shorter when you have a fast SSD drive.
  4. Restart your computer.

PST File access is denied

PST Access Denied buttonUpon starting Outlook, you may receive the following error message:

Cannot start Microsoft Outlook. Cannot open the Outlook window. The set of folders cannot be opened. File access is denied. You do not have the permission required to access the file
C:\Users\Robert\Documents\Outlook Files\Robert.pst.

In that case, you’ll need to adjust the file permissions for the pst-file that is referenced and grant yourself “Full Control” permissions.

  1. Browse to the file location as indicated in the error.
  2. Right click on the file and choose Properties.
  3. Select the Security tab.
  4. Press the Edit… button.
  5. Select your user account.
  6. Select the “Full control” permission.
  7. Press OK until all dialogs are closed.
  8. Start Outlook again.

Permissions for Robert.pst - Full control
Give yourself Full Control to your pst-file.

Tip!
When you are suffering from this issue, it may be wise to reset the permissions for your entire user folder. For detailed steps how to do that see: PST File access is denied after upgrading to Windows 10

iCloud doesn’t work

iCloud buttonDo you have the iCloud add-in installed? It may not work anymore after upgrading to Windows 10. To solve this, remove iCloud from your mail profile, repair the iCloud installation and then re-add the iCloud configuration to Outlook again via iCloud Control Panel.

  1. File-> Account Settings-> Account Settings…-> tab Data Files
  2. Select the iCloud data file and press Remove.
  3. If you also connected to the iCloud account via IMAP, remove this account.
  4. Close Outlook.
  5. Open the iCloud Control Panel via the Start Menu and uncheck the option: Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Task with Outlook.
  6. Download and install the latest version of iCloud from the Apple website or Microsoft Store.
    • When you already have the latest version installed, choose the Repair option.
  7. Reboot when being prompted to do so by the iCloud installer.
  8. Open the iCloud Control Panel via the Start Menu and select the option: Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Task with Outlook.
    • If this is a new installation of iCloud, iCloud may prompt you to run a repair on the iCloud installation again and reboot. Outlook integration will be available then.
  9. Start Outlook and let iCloud resync your data.

No new email notifications

Action Center buttonIf you no longer get any New Email Notifications, then click on the Action Center icon in the bottom right corner of your Taskbar to see your past notifications including emails from Outlook 2013, Outlook 2016, Outlook 2019, Outlook 2021 and Outlook as part of a Microsoft 365 subscription.

To get the New Email Notification banner again for each email that you receive;

  1. In the Action Center, in the top right click on: Manage notifications.
    • An alternative method is;
      Start-> Settings-> System-> from the Navigation Panel on the left choose: Notifications & actions.
  2. In the “Get notifications from these senders” section at the bottom, click on Outlook.
  3. Make sure that you have enabled all notification options which you want to get (“Hide content when notification are on lock screen” is off by default) and select how many notifications should be visible in the Action Center.
  4. Close Settings.

Note:
Outlook will only show New Email Alerts when the message is delivered to the Inbox folder. To make it show an alert even when the message is automatically moved to another folder by a Message Rule see the guide Creating a permanent New Mail Desktop Alert.

Rebuild search index / no search results

Search Outlook buttonAfter the upgrade to Windows 10 has finished, you might notice that no search results are being returned when you use the Search field in Outlook.

The first solution to this is: Wait!

In most cases, Windows Search still needs to re-index your Outlook content (and the rest of your computer) and will fix itself eventually when the computer is idle.

If results are still not being returned after you’ve left your computer idle for an extended period of time (like for instance overnight), then you can use the following troubleshooting guide: Fixing Instant Search.

Pictures not showing and “Work file” error

Broken Pictures buttonAfter upgrading, you might encounter an issue where pictures from the Internet might not be downloading into the message or that you get an error which reads;

Outlook could not create the work file. Check the TEMP environment variable.

Solving this issue is 2-fold and requires editing the Registry;

  1. Reset the registry value for the location of the “Temporary Internet Files” folder to default.
  2. Delete the registry entry for the “SecureTempFolder” in Outlook

Step 1
The Registry entry for the Temporary Internet Files folder can be found here;

  • Value name:
  • Key name:
  • Value type:

Here, verify that the location for that key is set to;

Step 2
Outlook uses a subfolder in the Temporary Internet Files folder to write its temp files which are retrieved from the Internet. For instance; linked pictures and attachments. To make sure a proper folder is being created, we reset the reference to this folder so that Outlook will recreate the registry entry and folder automatically the next time is needs to be used.

  • Value name:
  • Key name:
  • Value type:

Delete the key name. If the key name is not there, you’re ok already.

Now restart your computer for the changes to take effect and try again.

For more information about the SecureTempFolder for Outlook see the guide:
Error opening attachments / Cleaning out the Temporary Outlook Files folder.

Scan for and fix more issues with SaRA

SaRA buttonIf you are still having issues now, or even if you haven’t, use the “Microsoft Support and Recovery Assistant” (SaRA) to scan for a specific issue or your entire Outlook configuration for any known issues that can cause problems.

After the scan completes, SaRA offers you to fix the issue if it was successful detecting the cause of the issue.

Via Advanced Diagnostics, SaRA can do a full scan of your Outlook configuration and will create a detailed report of all Outlook issues it detected. For any problems that are listed in the report, you are provided with a link to an article about that specific problem so that you can read about possible fixes.

SaRA may also find some issues that you didn’t know about yet and/or already had before upgrading to Windows 10.

Clean install or upgrade has failed

Windows 10 - Clean installDid the upgrade fail and/or do you want to do a clean install of Windows 10 on a new or formatted disk?

During the setup process, when being prompted for what to keep, choose for the “Nothing” option. Of course, this means that you need to have a backup of all data that you wish to keep and restore that afterwards.

You can also download the Download Windows 10 to create a bootable USB-based installation media or burn to a DVD and boot your computer with.

What is the relationship between Microsoft and Amazon Web Services?

Amazon Web Services and Microsoft have worked together for several years, starting with AWS launching Windows Server based instances in 2008. AWS is a Gold Certified member of the Microsoft Partner Network and licensed to sell Microsoft software under the Services Provider License Agreement (SPLA). AWS is also an authorized license mobility partner. Over the years, AWS and Microsoft have collaborated to make Windows and its associated workloads available in the AWS cloud. Microsoft and AWS have mutual customers running Windows workloads on AWS today, including Dole Foods, Hess Corporation, and Lionsgate. In addition, AWS has released Microsoft-specific technologies that allow users to manage and optimize Windows applications in AWS – such as AWS tools for Windows PowerShell and EC2Rescue for EC2 Windows. 


Is Microsoft software supported on AWS?

Yes. AWS Support has been successfully supporting our customers who run Microsoft Windows-based EC2 instances in the AWS cloud since 2008 when we first launched Windows Server on EC2. Our support engineers have deep experience with Microsoft technologies on AWS including Amazon EC2, Amazon ECS, Amazon RDS, Amazon Workspaces and others. Now AWS has further enhanced our support capabilities with a new additional direct engagement between AWS Support and Microsoft Support, to help ensure high quality support and issue resolution for our customers. To find more information on end of support (EOS) for Microsoft products go here.


AWS is a member of the Microsoft Partner Network, licensed to sell Microsoft software under the Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA), and a Microsoft Gold Certified Hosting Partner. AWS is an authorized Microsoft License Mobility Partner and has an active Premier Support agreement with Microsoft.

 

What is the expanded support agreement between Amazon and Microsoft, and how does it benefit me?

For customers that have purchased AWS Support at the Business or Enterprise tier, AWS Support is able to work directly with Microsoft support engineers to resolve issues related to customers running Microsoft Windows Server, SQL Server, or Windows desktop (via Amazon Workspaces) on AWS. As a result of this expanded support agreement, AWS can engage directly with Microsoft to create the best possible support experience. If necessary, AWS Support can escalate issues directly to Microsoft and work with dedicated Microsoft support engineers to help ensure issues are addressed and resolved.

 

Can AWS open a support case with Microsoft on issues I might encounter?
Yes, AWS Support can work directly with Microsoft support engineers to escalate a support case if necessary to resolve issues encountered by AWS Support customers at the Business or Enterprise tier. AWS will not share any Customer information or specific details without your permission.

How does AWS work with Microsoft to resolve customer issues?

Customers who subscribe to AWS Support at the Business or Enterprise tier can submit issues through the AWS Support Center console. If the AWS Support Engineer finds that the problem is due to a Microsoft product or driver, the AWS Support Engineer can file a case with Microsoft and proceed with joint troubleshooting. The customer may be asked to document their authorization and permission for jointly engaging directly with Microsoft before AWS shares any Customer information or specific details.

 

Does the expanded support agreement between AWS and Microsoft cover all microsoft toolkit 1909 issues related to my applications running on Windows Server or Windows desktop?
Issues related to Microsoft products that are included with the purchase of an AWS Service (e.g. Windows Server or SQL Server with Amazon EC2, Amazon RDS, Amazon Elastic Container Service, or Amazon Workspaces) are covered under a customer’s AWS Support agreement. For software not purchased through AWS, AWS Support may help identify and resolve issues related to AWS Services, and, with your permission, work with Microsoft as necessary to troubleshoot the problem related to AWS Services.

Microsoft products that are outside of Microsoft’s End of Support dates are excluded from this expanded support offering.


Does the extended support agreement between AWS and Microsoft replace my Microsoft support agreement?
No, this expanded support offering does not replace a direct Microsoft support agreement. This service provides assurance that issues that may arise between an AWS Service and Microsoft product (e.g., Windows Server, SQL Server, or Windows) will be investigated and remediated with the support of both companies. However, customers may run into other issues with their Microsoft applications that are separate from their AWS Services, and in this case customers should work directly through their Microsoft support relationship.


Are there regional restrictions on accessing the benefit of the expanded Support agreement with Microsoft?

No, there are no regional restrictions to using this benefit.

 

What types of Microsoft software can I run on AWS?

You can run many types of Microsoft software on AWS, including but not limited to: Microsoft Office, Windows Server, SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, Skype for Business, Microsoft Dynamics products, System Center, BizTalk, and Remote Desktop Services. You can use license included instances that include the license for Windows Server and SQL Server on Amazon EC2 or Amazon RDS. AWS customers have the flexibility of bringing on-premises Microsoft volume licenses and deploying them on Amazon EC2 instances subject to Microsoft license terms.

Q. What is Microsoft End of Support (EOS)?

Microsoft Lifecycle Policy offers 10 years of support (5 years for Mainstream Support and 5 years for Extended Support) for Business and Developer products (such as SQL Server and Windows Server). As per the policy, after the end of the Extended Support period there will be no patches or security updates.

Q. How does EOS affect my existing instances on Amazon Web Services (AWS)?

There is no direct impact to existing instances. Customers can continue to start, run, and stop instances.

Microsoft will not provide patches for EOS products, unless customers purchase Extended Security Updates.

Q. Can I launch new instances that include EOS software from my Custom Amazon Machine Images (AMIs)?

Yes.

Q. Can I import images that contain EOS software into AWS using AWS tools?

Yes, customers can continue to import images to AWS using VM Import/Export (VMIE), Server Migration Service (SMS), or CloudEndure.

There is no direct impact to existing AMIs registered in customer accounts.

AWS will not publish or distribute Managed AWS Windows AMIs that contain EOS software to AWS Management Console, Quick Start, or AWS Marketplace.

Customers with dependencies on Managed AWS Windows AMIs impacted by EOS should consider their options, including creating Custom AMI(s) within their AWS account(s) to enable new instance launches. Learn more about custom AMI creation here.

Q. Can I create additional Custom AMIs from existing Custom AMIs in my account that contain EOS software?

  • SQL Server 2008 - July 9th, 2019
  • SQL Server 2008 R2 - July 9th, 2019

Amazon Relational Database Service (RDS):

RDS will automatically upgrade customer databases that remain on SQL Server 2008 to SQL Server 2012 starting on June 1, 2019. We recommend customers test this upgrade prior to this date to ensure compatibility.

RDS customers can upgrade their Database version at any time. Learn more about upgrading your SQL Server 2008 R2 database in RDS here.

Amazon WorkSpaces:

WorkSpaces will stop offering License Included public bundles of Windows 7 Experience powered by Windows Server 2008 R2 after January 14th 2020.

WorkSpaces launched from License Included public bundles with Windows 7 Desktop Experience will no longer be able to be launched or rebuilt after January 14th 2020.

There is no impact for WorkSpaces created from BYOL bundles. Customers can continue to launch/rebuild those instances.

Customers who have created custom License Included bundles powered by Windows Server 2008 R2 will be able to use their custom bundles to launch or rebuild WorkSpaces after EOS.

Microsoft will not provide patches for EOS products unless customers purchase Extended Security Updates.

Q. Does the change to Microsoft’s EOS software distribution policy only apply to AWS?

Microsoft has advised that this change will apply to all hyperscale cloud providers.

Q. What are my options for running Microsoft software that is approaching EOS?

AWS customers running EOS software on EC2 instances have several options:

Remain on EOS software: Customers may decide to remain on EOS software. There will be no impact to existing instances, or to custom AMIs. Customers who are interested in purchasing Extended Security Updates from Microsoft should review the answer to the question, “Can I purchase Extended Security Updates from Microsoft to cover EOS instances that run on AWS?”.

Automated upgrade: For customers with SQL Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2008 R2, AWS Systems Manager automates the performance of non-destructive in-place upgrades. SQL Server 2008 R2 customers can upgrade to SQL Server 2012 R2 and again to SQL Server 2016 (BYOL only). Windows Server 2008 R2 customers can upgrade to Windows Server 2012 R2. For customers with a License Included (LI) version of Windows Server or SQL Server, there is no additional licensing cost to upgrade. For more information, please click here.

Glossary

AMI (Amazon Machine Image): Is a template for the root volume for the instance (for example, an operating system, an application server, and applications), manages launch permissions that control which AWS accounts can use the AMI to launch instances. Contains a block device mapping that specifies the volumes to attach to the instance when it's launched.

AWS (Amazon Web Services): offers a broad set of global compute, storage, database, analytics, application, and deployment services that help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale applications.

AWS Management Console: access and manage Amazon Web Services through a simple and intuitive web-based user interface.

BYOL (Bring Your Own License): is a process you can use to deploy software that you have previously licensed on physically dedicated AWS hardware. If you BYOL, you do not pay for instances with licensing included in the cost. Instead, you pay the same rate as EC2 instances with Amazon Linux pricing. When you BYOL, you are responsible for managing your own licenses.

CloudEndure: offers reliable business continuity solutions that minimize data loss and downtime due to human errors, network failures, external threats, or any other disruptions. Our Disaster Recovery and Migration solutions are powered by innovative workload mobility technology, which continuously replicates applications from any physical, virtual, or cloud-based infrastructure into Amazon Web Services (AWS). As such, CloudEndure is uniquely qualified to support large-scale, heterogeneous environments with diverse applications and infrastructure.

Custom AMI: is an AMI created in your account either built from an imported image or captured from an existing instance. For example, you can launch an instance from an existing AMI, customize the instance, and then save this updated configuration as a custom AMI. Instances launched from this new custom AMI include the customizations that you made when you created the AMI.

EC2 (Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud): provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.

EOS (End of Support): is a term used to reference Microsoft ending support for a product, in accordance with their Product Lifecycle policy.

Hyperscale: refers to the facilities and provisioning required in distributed computing environments to efficiently scale from a few servers to microsoft toolkit 1909 of servers. Hyperscale computing is usually used in environments such as big data and cloud computing.

In-Place Upgrade: upgrades the operating system files while your personal settings and files are intact.

Instance (EC2 Instance): is a virtual server in the AWS cloud. Its configuration at launch is a copy of the AMI that you specified when you launched the instance.

LI (License Included): refers to the use of Amazon's Microsoft Licensing Agreement for Windows Server and SQL Server.

VMIE (AWS VM Import/Export): is an AWS Service used to import Operating System Images to AWS EC2 in an offline mode.

RDS (Amazon Relational Database Service): is a web service that makes it easier to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient, resizable capacity for an industry-standard relational database and manages common database administration tasks.

SA (Software Assurance): is a comprehensive program offered by Microsoft to help deploy, manage, and use Microsoft products efficiently.

SMS (AWS Server Migration Service): is an AWS Service used to import Operating System Images to AWS EC2 in an online mode.

WorkSpaces (Amazon Workspaces): is a managed, secure cloud desktop service. You can use Amazon WorkSpaces to provision either Windows or Linux desktops in just a few minutes and quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to workers across the globe.

What are my licensing options for Microsoft software on Amazon EC2?

On Amazon EC2, you can choose to run instances that include the relevant license fees in their cost (“license included”) or to utilize licenses you have already purchased from Microsoft. For Microsoft software, EC2 allows you to pay for instances that include Windows Server and SQL Server licenses. For all other Microsoft software, customers can bring their own license, subject to Microsoft’s terms.

What is BYOL?

BYOL, or “bring your own license” is the process of bringing previously purchased, on premises licenses to AWS. AWS has both shared and dedicated magic dvd ripper unlimited uses options to meet your BYOL needs. When you BYOL, the licensing cost of the product you bring is no longer included in the price of the instance. When you bring licenses, you are responsible for managing your licenses. Amazon EC2 has features such as AWS License Manager and targeted placement on Dedicated Hosts, which help you maintain license compliance throughout the lifecycle of your licenses.

 

What is License Mobility?

License Mobility is a Microsoft Software Assurance benefit that allows you to bring specific product licenses to shared cloud infrastructure, including default (shared) tenant Amazon EC2. Active Software Assurance is required to be eligible for License Mobility. For additional information on License Mobility, please see the License Mobility page on the AWS site.

For more information on bringing licenses without Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits, please visit this section of the FAQ.

 

How do I know if a specific Microsoft product is eligible for License Mobility?

This information is included in the Microsoft Product Terms. Every product has an individual Software Assurance section that indicates License Mobility eligibility.  License Mobility eligible products include SQL Server, Remote Desktop Services, System Center, Exchange, and SharePoint.

 

Do I need active Software Assurance and License Mobility benefits to use my Microsoft licenses in AWS?

There are specific BYOL scenarios that do not require Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits. EC2 dedicated infrastructure is always required in these scenarios. To be eligible, the licenses must be purchased prior to 10/1/2019 or added as a true-up under an active Enterprise Enrollment that was effective prior to 10/1/2019. In these specific BYOL scenarios, the licenses can only be upgraded to versions that were available prior to 10/1/2019.

 

If I bring my own license, can I relicense AWS's Microsoft media or do I need to bring in my own media (a.k.a. “bring your own bits”)?

No, you must import and license your own media. To get started, you can use the ImportImage API (from AWS CLI or AWS Tool for Windows PowerShell) to import your own media (VHD, VMDK, OVA). If you are importing from VMware vCenter, you can also use AWS Server Migration Service. After the media has been imported, you will see your images in the “My AMIs” console, or you can describe these images using the DescribeImages API.

After I import my Microsoft media, do I need to activate my media against my own key management server (KMS)?

Yes, when you launch an instance of your own image, your OS will prompt you to activate the image against your KMS.

How do I know what type of offering to use if I’m bringing my own license?

Please read your licensing terms and conditions and select the AWS model that meets your needs. Generally speaking, there are various products and each have differing levels of BYOL support.

How do I import my own licensed machine image into AWS?

In order to BYOL of Microsoft software into AWS, you need to use the ImportImage tool made available by the EC2 VM Import/Export service. Do not use the ImportInstance tool as it does not support Microsoft BYOL scenarios.

I've read in my licensing terms that certain licenses must be used on infrastructure that’s dedicated for my use. How does Amazon EC2 allow me to meet this requirement if I’m using my own licenses?

Amazon EC2 offers two purchasing options that provide you with dedicated infrastructure: Dedicated Hosts and Dedicated Instances. It is important to note that most BYOL scenarios are supported through the use of Dedicated Hosts, while only certain scenarios are supported by Dedicated Instances.

There are specific BYOL scenarios that do not require Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits. EC2 dedicated infrastructure is always required in these scenarios. To be eligible, the licenses must be purchased prior to 10/1/2019 or added as a true-up under an active Enterprise Enrollment that was effective prior to 10/1/2019. In these specific BYOL scenarios, the licenses can only be upgraded to versions that were available prior to 10/1/2019. 


When you bring products that are licensed at the physical level only (e.g. Windows Server, certain SQL Server licenses, etc) Dedicated Hosts provide visibility into physical processor and core counts and are therefore the recommended deployment model.


For more information on Dedicated Hosts, visit the Dedicated Hosts detail page.


For more information on Dedicated Instances, visit the Dedicated Instances detail page.

I've read in my licensing terms that a license cannot move to another region or physical machine for at least 90 days. How does Amazon EC2 help me meet this requirement if I’m using my own licenses?

Instance Affinity (only available through the use of Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts) and Dedicated Host targeting helps you to monitor this requirement. When you enable Affinity between an instance and a Dedicated Host, that particular instance will only run on a specific Dedicated Host. Using Dedicated Host targeting, you can launch instances onto a specific Dedicated Host, giving you full control over how your licenses are used.

For more information on these features, visit the Dedicated Hosts detail page.

When can I bring my own license using EC2 instances with default tenancy?

License Mobility through Software Assurance allows customers to bring eligible Microsoft software licenses into AWS for use on EC2 instances with default tenancy. The AWS License Mobility Page keyword researcher software - Free Activators a great place to start the process. If you are planning to take advantage of License Mobility in AWS, you will need to fill out the appropriate License Mobility forms. With License Mobility, you can use these images on EC2 Windows Server license-included instances running on EC2 instances with default tenancy. Windows Server licenses must be purchased from AWS in this scenario.

What is VM Import/Export?

VM Import/Export enables you to easily import virtual machine images from your existing environment to Amazon EC2 instances. This service allows you to leverage your existing investments in the virtual machines that you have built to meet your IT security, configuration management, and compliance requirements by bringing those virtual machines into Amazon EC2 as ready-to-use instances. If you are planning to use your own Microsoft licenses, use the ImportImage tool made available by the VM Import/Export service to import your own Microsoft media.

The VM Import/Export service is available at no additional charge beyond standard usage charges for Amazon EC2 and Amazon S3.

What is EC2's default tenancy?

EC2 Dedicated instances and EC2 Dedicated Hosts provide instance capacity on physical servers that are fully dedicated for your use. Alternatively, EC2 offers instances with a tenancy of ‘default’ which run on physical servers that may host multiple isolated instances from different customers.

What is dedicated infrastructure?

Dedicated infrastructure provides servers that are physically isolated for use by a single customer. Amazon EC2 has two dedicated infrastructure options: Dedicated Hosts and Dedicated Instances. If you bring existing licenses to Dedicated Hosts or Dedicated Instances, then you are using hardware that is fully dedicated to your use.

What are Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts?

A Dedicated Host is a physical EC2 server fully dedicated to you. Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts allow you to use your eligible software licenses from vendors, including Microsoft, on Amazon EC2, so that you get the flexibility and cost effectiveness of using your own licenses, but with the resiliency, simplicity and elasticity of AWS. With Dedicated Hosts, you have an option to control instance placement and gain visibility into the number of sockets and cores installed on a host. You can use these features to bring your own software licenses bound to virtual instances, sockets, or cores, including Windows Server, SQL Server, and SUSE Enterprise Server.

Dedicated Hosts are often used when customers bring license that do not have Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits. For more information on bringing licenses without Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits, please visit this section of the FAQ.

Please visit the Dedicated Host detail page for more information.

How can I manage EC2 Dedicated Hosts?

You can use AWS License Manager to simplify management of EC2 Dedicated Hosts. You can specify your Dedicated Host management preferences for host allocation and host capacity utilization in AWS License Manager. Once setup, AWS takes care of these administrative tasks on your behalf, so that you can seamlessly launch virtual machines (instances) on Dedicated Hosts just like you would launch an EC2 instance with AWS provided licenses. AWS License Manager helps track licenses used with Dedicated Host, and helps you stay compliant with your specified licensing rules such as 90 day affinity.

What are Amazon EC2 Dedicated Instances?

Dedicated instances are Amazon EC2 instances that run on hardware that is dedicated to a single customer. For more information on Dedicated Instances, please visit the Dedicated Instance page.

What’s the difference between Dedicated Hosts and Dedicated Instances?

Both offerings provide instances that are dedicated to your use. However, Dedicated Hosts provide additional control over your instances and visibility into Host level resources and tooling that allows you to manage software that consumes licenses on a per-core or per-socket basis, such as Windows Server and SQL Server. In addition, AWS Config will keep a record of how your instances use these Dedicated Host resources which will allow you to create your own license usage reports.

Does AWS recommend an EC2 purchasing model if I want to bring my own licenses?

In order to take full advantage of EC2 it is recommended that customers first consider bringing eligible licenses through License Mobility. Default tenancy EC2 allows customers to scale capacity up and down according to changing needs. This allows customers to pay only for what they use. SQL is the most common product brought to AWS through License Mobility.

Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts are ideal for products that are not eligible for License Mobility or for which active Software Assurance is not in place. For more information on bringing licenses without Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits, please visit this section of the FAQ.

Dedicated Hosts are most cost effective when the host is highly utilized and in a steady, non-variable state. A Dedicated Host will support the BYOL scenarios outlined in this FAQ and provide customers with more control and visibility over how their instances are placed, which is useful for minimizing risk and licensing costs in a BYOL scenario. Additionally, Dedicated Hosts support per-socket, per-core, VM, and CAL based licenses. Windows is the most common product brought to Dedicated Hosts.

What are my options for bringing development licenses to AWS?

AWS customers have options for bringing Microsoft developer products to AWS for use on test, development, and non-production workloads.

Please see this sectionfor information on bringing Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) licenses.

SQL Server 2019 Developer edition is available as a free download from Microsoft. Once downloaded from Microsoft, AWS customers can bring and install SQL Server 2019 Developer edition on Amazon EC2 instances. Dedicated infrastructure is not required for SQL Server 2019 Developer edition.

Is Windows Server eligible for BYOL on EC2?

There are three requirements for Windows Server to be eligible for BYOL on EC2:

1. The licenses must be deployed on EC2 Dedicated Hosts.
2. The licenses must have been purchased before 10/1/2019 (or added as a true-up under an agreement that was effective prior to 10/1/2019).
3. The version was publically available prior to 10/1/2019.

Software Assurance is not a requirement for Windows Server BYOL.

What are Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts?

A Dedicated Host is a physical EC2 server fully dedicated to you. Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts allow you to use your eligible software licenses from vendors, including Microsoft, on Amazon EC2, so that you get the flexibility and cost effectiveness of using your own licenses, but with the resiliency, simplicity and elasticity of AWS. With Dedicated Hosts, you have an option to control instance placement and gain visibility into the number of sockets and cores installed on a host. You can use these features to bring your own software licenses bound to virtual instances, sockets, or cores, including Windows Server, SQL Server, and SUSE Enterprise Server.

Dedicated Hosts are often used when customers bring license that do not have Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits. For more information on bringing licenses without Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits, please visit this section of the FAQ.

Please visit the Dedicated Host detail page for more information.

How can I manage EC2 Dedicated Hosts?

You can use AWS License Manager to simplify management of EC2 Dedicated Hosts. You can specify your Dedicated Host management preferences for host allocation and host capacity utilization in AWS License Manager. Once setup, AWS takes care of these administrative tasks on your behalf, so that you can seamlessly launch virtual machines (instances) on Dedicated Hosts just like you would launch an EC2 instance with AWS provided licenses. AWS License Manager helps track licenses used with Dedicated Host, and helps you stay compliant with your specified licensing rules such as 90 day affinity.

How can I control instance placements in the EC2 Dedicated Hosts?

You have the option to launch instances onto a specific Dedicated Host, or you can let Amazon EC2 place the instances automatically based on your licensing preferences in AWS License Manager. Controlling instance placement allows you to deploy applications to address licensing, corporate compliance, and regulatory requirements.

Can I run multiple instance types on a Dedicated Host?

You can run different instance sizes within the same instance family on a Dedicated Host using AWS Nitro instance family. This allows you to maximize utilization of your Dedicated Host fleet as well as your software licenses.

How do I import and use my own Windows Server license?

You can bring in your own licensed copy of Windows Server media using the ImageImport tool made available by the EC2 VM Import/Export service. Once these images are imported, you can find them under the “my AMIs” section in the AWS Management Console or by using the DescribeImages API. You can then launch instances from your BYOL machine images onto Dedicated Hosts.

Visit this link for more information on how to bring your own machine images into AWS.

Keep in mind that when you choose to bring in your existing Windows Server licenses, you cannot utilize Windows Server AMIs that you purchase from AWS through license-included instances. You must bring in your own licenses using your own software media.

How do I track usage if I’m bringing my own licenses?

Using AWS Config as the data source and Dedicated Hosts as the platform to run BYOL instances, you can track BYOL usage against physical resources such as sockets and cores. Before you begin launching BYOL instances onto your Dedicated Hosts, ensure AWS Config has been enabled to record Dedicated Host changes. AWS Config keeps track of the configuration changes that occur on a Dedicated Host, including the instances and corresponding IDs of AMIs that ran on a Dedicated Host. These changes are paired with Host level data, such as the Host ID and the number of sockets and physical cores installed on a Dedicated Host. AWS Config will also keep track of instance tags. We recommend that you tag your instances with a meaningful identifier if you would like a human-readable way to identify BYOL instances in the AWS Config output. Visit this page for more information on AWS Config.

How do I determine the number of licenses of Windows Server to bring in?

Visit the Dedicated Hosts detail page for information on the number of instances available per Dedicated Host. On this page you will also find the number of sockets and cores installed on each EC2 Dedicated Host. The instance, socket, and core counts vary by the instance type configuration of the Dedicated Host.

Do I need to have Software Assurance on Windows Server on AWS?

No, if you are using Dedicated Hosts to bring your own Windows Server licenses, you do not need to have Software Assurance (SA).  Windows Server licenses can be brought to Dedicated Hosts if the licenses were purchased prior to 10/1/2019 or added as a true-up under an active Enterprise Enrollment that was effective prior to 10/1/2019. In these specific BYOL scenarios, the licenses can only be upgraded to versions that were available prior to 10/1/2019.  When you purchase Windows Server as license included instances from AWS, there is no need for you to have Software Assurance to cover those Windows Server licenses.

How do I run Windows Server on Dedicated Hosts after Microsoft’s licensing update announced in 2019?

In 2019, Microsoft updated the licensing terms for dedicated hosts cloud service. Based on the new licensing terms, you can bring your eligible Windows Server licenses to Dedicated Hosts if the licenses were purchased prior to 10/1/2019 or added as a true-up under an active Enterprise Enrollment that was effective prior to 10/1/2019. In these specific BYOL scenarios, the licenses can only be upgraded to versions that were available prior to 10/1/2019.

If you don’t have eligible Window Server licenses or if you want to run the latest versions of Windows Server offered after 10/1/2019, then you can use Windows Server AMIs provided by Amazon on Dedicated Hosts.

Do I have to pay for SQL Server passive failover?

There are various factors to consider when licensing passive failover for SQL Server. The information below pertains only to the SQL Server licenses and not the Windows Server licenses. In all cases, you must license Windows Server. For more information on SQL and failover server scenarios, visit this Microsoft SQL Server Licensing guide.

  • Using instances that include the license for SQL Server:
    Customers purchasing SQL Server license included instances on EC2 must license passive failover instances.
  • Bringing SQL Server licenses with active Software Assurance to default tenant EC2:
    Customers bringing SQL Server 2014 and later versions with Software Assurance to default tenant EC2 will license the virtual cores (vCPUs) on the active instance. In return, Software Assurance permits the customer one passive instance (equal or lesser size) where SQL Server licensing is not required.
  • Bringing SQL Server to Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts or Amazon EC2 Dedicated Instances
    • SQL Server 2014 and later versions
      Software Assurance is required for SQL Server passive failover benefits on dedicated infrastructure. Customers bringing SQL Server with Software Assurance will license the cores on the active instance/host and are permitted one passive instance/host (equal or lesser size) where SQL Server licensing is not required.
    • SQL Server 2008 – SQL Server 2012R2
      SQL Server 2008 -2012R2 are eligible for passive failover on EC2 dedicated infrastructure without active Software Assurance. In these scenarios, the customer will license the active instance/host, and is permitted one passive instance/host of equal or lesser size where SQL Server licensing is not required. Please click here for information on bringing SQL Server without active Software Assurance.

 

How do I know how many SQL Server licenses to bring in?

If you are licensing SQL Server under Microsoft’s License Mobility through Software Assurance, the number of licenses required varies based on the instance type, version of SQL Server, and the Microsoft licensing model you choose. To assist you with your virtual core licensing calculations under the Microsoft Product Terms, we provide a table here that shows the number of virtual representations of hardware threads based on instance type.

If you are using Dedicated Hosts, EC2 provides you with the number of physical cores installed on the Dedicated Host. Using this information, you can calculate the number of SQL Server licenses that you need to bring in. For additional information, we recommend referencing Microsoft documentation, such as the licensing guide for SQL Server 2019 (see here).

What are the use cases for SQL Server Web Edition?

The Service Provider Use Rights (SPUR) state that SQL Server Web may be used to support public and Internet accessible web pages, web sites, web applications and web services. SQL Server Web may not be used to support line of business applications (e.g., Customer Relationship Management, Enterprise Resource Management and other similar applications). For addition information on use cases for SQL Server Web, please consult Microsoft or your Microsoft reseller.


How do I track usage if I’m bringing my own licenses?

Using AWS Config as the data source you can track configuration changes against physical resources such as sockets and cores. Before you begin launching BYOL instances onto AWS, ensure AWS Config has been enabled to record any changes. AWS Config keeps track of the changes that occur, including the instances and corresponding AMI IDs that ran. These changes are paired with Host level data, such as the Host ID and the number of sockets and physical cores installed. AWS Config will also keep track of instance tags. We recommend that you tag your instances with a meaningful identifier if you would like a human-readable way to identify BYOL instances in your AWS Config logs. Visit this page for more information on AWS Config.

 

Can SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition be used on AWS?

Yes. SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition is available as a free download from Microsoft. SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition is eligible for use in non-production, development, and test workloads.

Dedicated infrastructure is not required for SQL Server 2019 Developer Edition.

 

Are SQL CALS required on AWS?

Customers using SQL Server on Amazon EC2 or Amazon RDS license included instances do not require client access licenses (CALs) for SQL Server. An unlimited number of end users can access SQL Server on a license included instance.

Customers bringing their own SQL Server licenses to Amazon EC2 through license mobility or bring your own licenses (BYOL), will continue to follow the licensing rules they have in place on-premises. If the customer purchased SQL Server under the Server/CAL model, they would still require CALs to meet Microsoft licensing requirements, but these CALs would remain on-premises and enable end user access SQL Server running on AWS.

Can I bring Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) licenses to AWS?

Microsoft Development Network (MSDN) subscriptions purchased through Visual Studio cloud subscriptions, Enterprise Agreement Subscription, Open Value Subscription, Campus Agreement, or other “subscription” Volume Licensing programs prior to October 1, 2019 are eligible for deployment on EC2 Dedicated Hosts or EC2 Dedicated Instances. However, Microsoft made changes to the license terms under these specific subscription programs that do not permit BYOL for subscriptions purchased or renewed after October 1, 2019, and these new terms become effective at renewal.

For information on bringing licenses without Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits, please see this section of the FAQ.

How can I obtain additional Remote Desktop Services licenses?

Each Amazon EC2 instances come with two Remote Desktop Services (aka Terminal Services) licenses for administration purposes. This Quickstart is available to help you provision these licenses for your administrators. You can also use AWS Systems Manager Session Manager, which enables remoting into EC2 instances without RDP and without a need for RDP licenses. If additional Remote Desktop Services licenses are needed, Remote Desktop user CALs should be purchased from Microsoft or a Microsoft license reseller. Remote Desktop users CALs with active Software Assurance have License Mobility benefits and can be brought to AWS default (shared) tenant environments. For information on bringing licenses without Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits, please see this section of the FAQ.

If you are providing this is a service to a third party (not internal use), then the Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA) could be used to license Remote Desktop Services. Under this model, you would deploy your service on AWS and rent remote desktop licenses for your end users on a monthly basis. Information on SPLA can be found at: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/CloudandHosting/Licensing_Get_started_with_SPLA.aspx

Are System Center products such as System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) eligible for BYOL on Amazon EC2 Windows Server?

Yes, System Center Server Standard and System Center Server Datacenter include these Server Management products, and when these licenses have active Software Assurance, they can be deployed on default or dedicated tenant EC2 Windows Server environments through License Mobility.

In contrast, when System Center products are purchased individually as Client Management Licenses, and are not purchased as part of System Center Standard or System Center Datacenter suites, the licenses are intended for managing end user clients rather than server environments.

Can I use my own SPLA?

AWS has many customers and partners that utilize their own SPLA for licensing. AWS customers can use their own SPLA in scenarios where they are offering software services to third parties. Customers that have a SPLA with Microsoft are governed by the Services Provider Use Rights (SPUR). The SPUR describes exactly how customers can outsource their infrastructure to AWS. Products licensed by user can be deployed on multi-tenant AWS and licensed on a monthly basis under the customer’s SPLA. Unless deployed on EC2 dedicated infrastructure, products that are licensed by core or processor (Windows Server, SQL Server) should be licensed with AWS license included instances.

What are Self Hosting rights?

ISVs can choose to utilize self-hosting rights with Microsoft as part of their Enterprise Agreement (EA). This allows them to take advantage of pricing that they have negotiated with Microsoft under their EA. Microsoft requires that customers not mix self-hosting rights and SPLA for each application. If you have a solution that is licensed under the self-hosting benefit and you wish to bring it to AWS, you can deploy this on EC2 default tenancy. In this scenario, you would still be required to purchase a Windows license-included instance. Dedicated Hosts are not required for SQL (or other included self-hosting products) due to AWS’s status as a license mobility partner. 

Can Microsoft BizSpark licenses be used on AWS?

No, at this time new BizSpark licenses cannot be used on AWS. We encourage startups to try AWS Activate, with benefits including usage credits, support, training and more.

For more information on all of Amazon’s products and Services, please visit AWS product page.

Q: What applications are best suited for EMP?

Application that have dependencies on legacy versions of Windows and lack support on newer version of Windows are prime candidates for EMP. EMP eliminates the underlying OS dependencies by packaging the dependencies in the EMP package which can run as a self-contained setup on any newer version of Windows.

Q: Should all legacy applications use EMP?

Some applications will be compatible with newer version of Windows. For such applications, a simple upgrade of the underlying OS is generally the easiest path forward. EMP works best for applications that are incompatible with newer versions of Windows.

Q. Can I purchase Extended Security Updates to cover instances that run on AWS, utilizing Microsoft EOS software?

Yes, Extended Security Updates (ESU) are available directly from Microsoft or a Microsoft licensing partner. To be eligible to purchase ESU, Microsoft requires Software Assurance under an Enterprise Agreement (EA), Enterprise Subscription Agreement (EAS), a Server & Cloud Enrollment (SCE), an Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES), or Subscription.

Extended Security Updates can be purchased on an annual basis for servers as needed up to a maximum of 3 years after a product's EOS date. The approximate cost of ESU for an EOS product is 75% of the annual license pc tune up pro download for the affected product. However, ESU only include security updates and bulletins rated "critical" for SQL Server, and those rated "critical" and "important" Windows Server, still leaving your software open to other potential vulnerabilities. We suggest that customers should consider all available options for EOS, see “What are my options for running Microsoft software that is approaching EOS?” for more information.

Glossary
AMI (Amazon Machine Image): Is a template for the root volume for the instance (for example, an operating system, an application server, and applications), manages launch permissions that control which AWS accounts can use the AMI to launch instances. Contains a block device mapping that specifies the volumes to attach to the instance when it's launched.
AWS (Amazon Web Services): offers a broad set of global compute, storage, database, analytics, application, and deployment services that help organizations move faster, lower IT costs, and scale applications.
AWS Management Console: access and manage Amazon Web Services through a simple and intuitive web-based user interface.
BYOL (Bring Your Own License): is a process you can use to deploy software that you have previously licensed on physically dedicated AWS hardware. If you BYOL, you do not pay for instances with licensing included in the cost. Instead, you pay the same rate as EC2 instances with Amazon Linux pricing. When you BYOL, you are responsible for managing your own licenses.
CloudEndure: offers reliable business continuity solutions that minimize data loss and downtime due to human errors, network failures, external threats, or any other disruptions. Our Disaster Recovery and Migration solutions are powered by innovative workload mobility technology, which continuously replicates applications from any physical, virtual, or cloud-based infrastructure into Amazon Web Services (AWS). As such, CloudEndure is uniquely qualified to support large-scale, heterogeneous environments with diverse applications and infrastructure.
Custom AMI: is an AMI created in your account either built from an imported image or captured from an existing instance. For example, you can launch an instance from an existing AMI, customize the instance, and then save this updated configuration as a custom AMI. Instances launched from this new custom AMI include the customizations that you made when you created the AMI.
EC2 (Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud): provides scalable computing capacity in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud.
EMP (End-of-Support Migration Program) for Windows Server: program that helps customers with migration of their legacy Windows Server applications to the latest, supported versions of Windows Server on AWS, without any code changes.
EOS (End of Support): is a term used to reference Microsoft ending support for a product, in accordance with their Product Lifecycle policy.
Hyperscale: refers to the facilities and provisioning required in distributed computing environments to efficiently scale from a few servers to thousands of servers. Hyperscale computing is usually used in environments such as big data and cloud computing.
In-Place Upgrade: upgrades the operating system files while your personal settings and files are intact.
Instance (EC2 Instance): is a virtual server in the AWS cloud. Its configuration at launch is a copy of the AMI that you specified when you launched the instance.
LI (License Included): refers to the use of Amazon's Microsoft Licensing Agreement for Windows Server and SQL Server.
LTSC (Long Term Servicing Channel): is a release channel of Windows Server released once per 2-3 years with stability and long term support in mind. LTSC releases provide a predictable OS experience and provide 5 years of traditional support starting from initial release, plus an additional 5 years of extended support for security updates.
VMIE (AWS VM Import/Export): is an AWS Service used to import Operating System Images to AWS EC2 in an offline mode.
RDS (Amazon Relational Database Service): is a web service that makes it easier to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient, resizable capacity for an industry-standard relational database and manages common database administration tasks.
SA (Software Assurance): is a comprehensive program offered by Microsoft to help deploy, manage, and use Microsoft products efficiently.
SAC (Semi-Annual Channel): is release channel of Windows Server released twice per year with a limited support life cycle, ending 18 months from initial release. SAC releases allow customers to pilot the latest OS features quickly, but are not intended for long term use.
SMS (AWS Server Migration Service): is an AWS Service used to import Operating System Images to AWS EC2 in an online mode.
WorkSpaces (Amazon Workspaces): is a managed, secure cloud desktop service. You can use Amazon WorkSpaces to provision either Windows or Linux desktops in just a few minutes and quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to workers across the globe.

Does AWS offer SharePoint instances?

Not completely. We provide one Windows Server 2008 R2 image that offers Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 SP2.

How can I run SharePoint on AWS?

You can run SharePoint on AWS by deploying eligible licenses with active Software Assurance through Microsoft’s License Mobility program. Learn more at http://aws.amazon.com/windows/resources/licensemobility/. SharePoint can also be deployed on Amazon EC2 Dedicated Hosts without Software Assurance.

What is Microsoft License Mobility?

Microsoft License Mobility through Software Assurance allows Microsoft customers connectify hotspot 2019 crack free download - Free Activators move current on-premises Microsoft Server application workloads to Amazon Web Services (AWS), without any additional Microsoft software license fees. This benefit is available to Microsoft Volume Licensing (VL) customers with eligible server applications covered by active Microsoft Software Assurance (SA) contracts. Learn more at http://aws.amazon.com/windows/resources/licensemobility/.

What if I do not have Software Assurance on the Licenses?

Please contact your Microsoft Large Account Reseller (LAR) for options on how to purchased and/or add Software Assurance to existing licenses.  For information on bringing licenses without Software Assurance or License Mobility benefits, please see this section of the FAQ.

How do SharePoint licenses on AWS work?

One SharePoint license can be assigned to one AWS instance (no max/min size).

How do I use a SQL Instance with SharePoint on AWS?

Customers can run their existing SQL licenses per the License Mobility program or they can run on an AWS SQL instance. For more information on SQL instances running on Amazon EC2, including pricing, please visit http://aws.amazon.com/windows/products/ec2.

What is EC2Rescue for Windows?

EC2Rescue for EC2 Windows is a convenient, straightforward, GUI-based troubleshooting tool that can be run on your Amazon EC2 Windows Server instances to troubleshoot operating system-level issues and collect advanced logs and configuration files for further analysis. EC2Rescue simplifies and expedites the troubleshooting of EC2 Windows instances. For more information, visit fl studio free - Crack Key For U AWS support customers running versions of Windows prior to Server 2003 R2?

Not officially. While it may be possible to create an image of an older operating system, driver support would pose a major challenge to functionality. AWS cannot offer support for these scenarios, however customers are welcome to run these workloads without the expecatation of support.

Will customers have to recreate their environment using other technologies in order to receive support from AWS or Microsoft?

No. Customers can receive support running Microsoft workloads on AWS from both AWS and Microsoft under the customer’s support agreements with AWS or Microsoft without having to recreate their environment using other technologies. In the very rare case a problem could not be duplicated, AWS would work with the customer to recreate the issue in a Microsoft validated environment.

Is AWS SVVP Validated?

AWS does not need to be SVVP validated for customers to be fully supported running Microsoft workloads on AWS. As Microsoft explains: “SVVP does not apply to vendors that are hosting Windows Server or other Microsoft products through the Microsoft Service Provider License Agreement Program (SPLA). Support for SPLA customers is provided under the SPLA agreement by the SPLA hoster.” (see http://www.windowsservercatalog.com/svvp.aspx).

Without SVVP Validation, are Microsoft products fully supported in the AWS environment?

Yes. SVVP validation is not applicable to SPLA providers. Support for SPLA customers is provided under the SPLA agreement by AWS. AWS is fully committed to supporting our customers running Microsoft workloads on AWS.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update: Version 1909 is available now--here's what's new

UPDATE Button on Computer Keyboard

Nov. 12, 2019, was more than just a normal Microsoft Windows 10 Security Patch Tuesday. After the installation of a cumulative malicious code patch or two, you may have noticed an optional update is available on your Update & Security settings screen (Figure A).

Figure A

a-win10-version1909-released.jpg

The feature update to Windows 10, Version 1909, adds several performance and quality-of-life enhancements to the operating system. These updated features should make the overall Windows 10 experience better for users. But for the most part, the updated features are subtle under-the-hood changes--nothing a typical user will notice or have to deal with in terms of changing default configuration settings.

There are a few new features that may appeal to certain users, particularly users taking advantage of voice-activated digital assistants and the built-in Windows 10 Calendar app.

SEE: 20 pro tips to make Windows 10 work the way you want(TechRepublic download)

What changes can you expect in Windows 10 Version 1909?

If you elect to install the optional feature update and move to Windows 10 Version 1909, you will notice something striking when compared with previous version updates--brevity. The download and installation of this feature update should take only a few minutes and will be completed by a system restart. You do not need to plan for an hours-long process.

When you return to the Windows 10 desktop, you will not notice any obvious changes. According to the Microsoft Insiders documents page for Version 1909, many of the performance enhancements are not visible easyworship 7 crack kickass - Free Activators typical operating system use. There are also several improvements that are important for enterprise administrators and OEMs--not the average user.

However, users of the Windows 10 Calendar app will notice a change right away when they click the date and time icon located in the System Tray of the Taskbar. There is now a box where users can add events to their calendar from the flyout screen (Figure B).

Figure B

b-win10-version1909-released.jpg

Another subtle change that users will appreciate applies to how the navigation pane of the Start Menu works in Windows 10 Version 1909. Hovering your mouse cursor in the Start Menu Navigation pane will now automatically expand the pane to show more detail about each individual option (Figure C). Users had to perform that task manually before the update.

Figure C

c-win10-version1909-released.jpg

If you regularly use the Alexa digital assistant from Amazon, you may be pleased to learn that Windows 10 Version 1909 allows you to reach Alexa above the Windows 10 lock screen. Microsoft has been expanding features that can be accessed without actually logging onto your PC, and now Alexa joins the list.

Should you opt in to Windows 10 Version 1909?

Overall, the Windows 10 November 2019 Update to Version 1909 adds several new features that should appeal to certain users and not annoy everyone else. So far, there are no reports of Version 1909 breaking applications or otherwise causing problems. And since the installation is mostly painless, it may be worth a few minutes to opt in to this optional Windows 10 update.
