Quick Byte: Microsoft Licensing Tip #11 – Desktop PC Applications

Three rules for desktop PC applications:

  • One license is required for each device using the software (locally or remotely)
  • You can install any number of copies of any version that is supported
  • You can also install those copies on the host OS or in a virtual hardware system
  • You can access (if permitted) from any device that has a license for the software (e.g. Microsoft Office suite); BUT the device must have a license for the same or later edition, for example, you cannot access Office 2007 with a device that is licensed on Office 2003.
