    Angry RM CC4 Licensing

    I need about 45 RM CC4 licenses and they are quoting me at 85 per client! and on top of that 35 for the MS Office Licenses...

    Surely this is daylight robbery?

    Is there anyway that I can get them to reduce the price? Its ridiculous

    There are different license types. What machines are the licenses for? Do you already have licenses in place?

    Can sometimes be a lot cheaper to relicense any 'admin' machines you have in place. :-)

    It sure is and why I hold a thing against RM........

    All the same as I understand it includes aditional software on the PC (AV ect) but then again haven't been at a RM school in 2 years and are loving basic Microsoft lic costs

    Lets not turn this into yet another bashing thread. It's not constructive. :-)

    If the license includes bits of software which we dont require surely I can ask for it to be removed thus reducing the license cost?

    The school have bought 45 laptops elsewhere but require the CC4 client licenses so that i can build them onto the CC4 network. Time to put on my bargaining hat and see what i can do

    How to Remove RM CC4 Front End off Windows Clients - (without having to reinstall OS)

    I have come across lots of people asking "Is it possible to uninstall RM CC3/4 off my clients without Reinstalling the Operating System", a lot of the forums out there advise - The only way is to do a fresh install of the OS on the client!

    Facing this problem ourselves recently on a network, where the school could not afford the annual maintenance contract of RM, and wanted to remove this off their network, we figured it out!

    By dissabling a few Services, removing 2 Programs, and running two scripts you are able to remove the RM front end from Clients without having to completely reinstall the OS, Saving time and $$.

    Please visit our 'General Support' area on our website for further step by step details.......

    Why on earth spend any time trying to remove things like that.
    1. Just format/reimage the bloody thing...
    2. That 85 also includes the relevant license to connect the station to the server ala a CAL. Without it, you'd need to get a CAL for Windows server anyway...
    3. Complaining about 35 for an Office Pro license? That really isn't exactly extortionate...

    RM do a cheaper licence cost that excludes the RM tutor part - if your just installing within an office for example and don't need tutor then ask for a (I think level 1 licence)

    not listed on the website any more Community Connect Client Licences but they def do one as i have a fair few

    Dont use tutor anywhere except for within ICT suites, so was pointless buying licences for it. Wasnt a massive reduction but every little helps.
