    as I suspected it's not working, but I do notice that my Technet Enterprise run in demo with a key already enter and it stay in demo until I change the key , so you may have the same problem with your Pro if it come from Technet, and the key the guy give you are probably demo key only, so you can't install MC, it's easy to see, if you have a watermark in the bottom right corner saying Windows 8 pro 9200 build , this is the demo

    I do notice that there is that watermark until I run slui.exe 3 to activate it. Once that is done that watermark goes away. I am assuming that activating it takes it out of "demo" mode? I am trying to see if they have any other keys that I can use and try.

    if you have the watermark it's clearly an Enterprise as the Pro from technet don't have the watermark, as the fact it show a pro in the computer property is out of my understanding as I can't repeat it in my lab ... For me you have a Enterprise, what ever it show

    They may be also the possibility that's a Pro VL and the MC is not available on them.

    I would suggest you get your Windows the regular way if you want to use MC as this thing seems it will never work. No that I don't try

    Well spotted - that sounds like it could be the reason.

    I don't have Pro VL, so I can't experiment it......
