Visual Studio Ultimate with MSDN - Licences question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We all have "Visual Studio Ultimate with MSDN" subscriptions.

    We also have full/boxed OS licences for our workstations, mainly because of the "Using the software in any other way, such as for doing email, playing games, or editing a document is another use and is not covered by the MSDN subscription license" mention."

    We have plan to install a dedicated PC in our meeting-room for:

    - video-conferencing with our main office, as part of our development process (progress meeting).

    - Demo of our product.

    Can we use a OS licence from MSDN?

    All I read is not very clear.

  • Willy, the response back from the team is that you cannot use an MSDN license for video conferencing.  Video-conferencing falls outside of the uses allowed by the MSDN Subscriptions license, and is considered a business operation.  You'll need to find a separate license for this machine.
