Question MSDN Student Copies

Out of curiosity and to settle an argument, how many PCs total can these MSDN versions of Windows and such be installed on simultaneously?

TIA,

-Ryan

Default Re: MSDN Student Copies

According to Wikipedia:
Quote:
An MSDN subscriber is entitled to activate as many copies as needed for his/her own development purposes. Therefore, if a computer enthusiast somehow has 20 computers at home which he uses himself for software development (and aren't acting as part of a business, for example, a server farm), one subscription allows all 20 of those computers to be running their own separate copy of Windows, Office, and any other Microsoft product. After a few installations, the activation keys will stop allowing automatic product activation over the Internet, but after a telephone call to the Product Activation hotline to confirm that the installations are indeed legitimate and consistent with the license agreement, the activations are granted over the phone.
But it's Wikipedia so don't trust its accuracy 100%.

MSDN can only be installed on 1 machine simultaneously. Just like any other copy of Windows. They are considered retail versions and have to follow the same exact rules and laws as every other version. They have the same EULA.

Now if you are using it for testing purposes, then what Wikipedia said is true. You must be able to confirm with Microsoft and the Product Hotline that this is indeed for testing. It will require information about you and your MSDN account.
