    I think you should call Microsoft for that........

        If you have OE licenses that haven't been activated, then they will very soon (withing 30 days of installation) stop working. If it is more than 30 days since the O/S was installed and they are still working then they have been activated.

        Are the computers desktops or laptops or a combination?
        Were they all purchased new or second-hand?
        Were they purchased with a license or were the licenses purchased separately?
        Are all the licenses OEM or are there some other license types? eg. VLK, TechNet, Action Pack
