How do I get product key for Win10 ISO file install on VMWare Fusion?

patjdixon 1 Reputation point

I downloaded a Win10 ISO file from to my MacBook Pro. When I try to create a new VM, I am asked for a product key. Where do I get it? Do I just buy a product key from Microsoft and it will work with the ISO file I downloaded?
