Hm. Sorry if I wasn't clear. I am not sure if we have a support contract
or not. I am just a part-time sysadmin at a University institute. My
main job is running a research group in physics. I hadn't been able to
find out from the central IT people at the University level whether we
have a support contract for Windows :-( so we probably don't...

Is there a way to find out whether one has a support contract?
