BizSpark Graduation and Visual Studio - Confused! RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have just graduated from the BizSpark program. We've completed the Graduation Survey and under the "My Benefits" section it says this:

    BizSpark graduation package

    You can keep, at no charge, all the software you downloaded, including a standard configuration of Windows Server and Microsoft SQL Server.

    Your BizSpark licenses
    • 4 Windows Server® Standard Edition
    • 2 SQL Server® Standard Edition (core license)
    • 1 Visual Studio Ultimate Edition Single*

    *The number of Visual Studio licenses is based on the number of BizSpark members registered to your Startup. With these licenses, BizSpark members may continue to use ALL the software they used while in the program, but these licenses do not include an ongoing MSDN subscription.

    My Visual Studio has this morning EXPIRED and it will not update a licence, despite the graduation process clearly saying I have 1 Licence for Visual Studio.

    What do I need to do?
