    Reusable Win10 VMWare virtual machines. Activation concern


    Hi,

    I need to be able to create and distribute secure Windows 10 VMWare virtual machines. I will be encrypting and restricting the VM's using Workstation Pro.

    I will be providing them to contractors at my company and once they complete their work I need to be able to re-use the activation key and trash the VM they were using.

    I am concerned that once the contractor finishes their work, I won't be able to remotely access their VM and manually uninstall the activation key.

    Will I be able to simply re-use the key by doing online/phone activation or does anyone have another solution that could work for my scenario?

    Thanks in advance,
    Sean

    :)

  2. Windows 10 stays valid after upgrading virtual machine version?

    I'm in the process of doing the free upgrade of Windows 7 to Windows 10 in a VMware virtual machine which is at virtual machine version 8. When Windows 10 finishes installing I'll have to upgrade the virtual machine to virtual machine version 11. Will
    the Windows 10 license stay valid/activated after upgrading to virtual machine version 11?
