Request: Please make MSRS Standard Edition part of the Bizspark Program!!! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Currently, MSRS is not available via the Bizspark program, focused on enabling startups to leverage Microsoft technologies to build innovative applications.  I would greatly appreciate it if you would consider adding MSRS to this program, as I think it will help fuel additional growth for MSRS and CCR/DSS applications.

  • Thank you for your suggestion. I will pass it on.

    Don't forget that the Express Edition is available for free.

  • Hi, Trevor.  

    Just following up here.  The main obstacle with the Express edition is the inability to do distributed deployments and to generate C# code.  Royalty-free distribution is not a concern - for that, one could certainly pay for a development license.  Any further thoughts on opening up other versions to Bizspark/MSDN subscribers?

  • The situation is unlikely to change in the near future.

  • For what it is worth, I am also part of the Bizspark program and would like to see it included as well.

    Perhaps more importantly I would like to see additional white papers, videos and sample code on how to use the CCR+DSS in commercial (non robotics) applications.

    I know the MSRS team is small, but I believe Microsoft has a real oppurtunity here.

  • Hi, Julien.

    Thanks for making it available to Bizspark members.  I'm the one who first initiated the request, and am DELIGHTED to see it made available.  I've green-lighted my developers to actively evaluate it as a part of our future software solutions!

    Best regards,
