Office CAL tied to media kit
Before I started my school wanted to buy an additiional 8 Office 2007 Pro Plus licenses through our LEA.
They were asked whether they wanted the 2010 media kit, and at the time as they had no one in the know - who would not know that you get downgrade rights - they said they wanted Office 2007.
I've been told as the Office 2010 CALs were sold with an Office 2007 media they are now only Office 2007 CALs and cannot be used for Office 2010 (as the school chose Office 2007 media).
I ask as we've now got access to volume licensing through a third party retailer and I'd like to use these 2010 CALs to replace 2007 on some PCs of staff who can't get on with 07, but can with 10 at home.
Now was the LEA guy selling me some bumf information (perhaps in the hopes of getting a seperate Office 10 order), or is this MS practice that if you buy with a media kit, regardless of what is the current version, you get the version of the media kit.
Confused?! I know I am.
