    License cost???

    We usually buy our licenses through our LA.

    Xp /Vista License via "Select" cost approx 34 per machine.

    I have just been informed that we cannot buy Windows 7 on select so the cost will be 140.31 per license.

    Who/where do you guys buy yours?

    Si

    Your license company is wrong.
    You'll be looking about 30 per license - vendor part number is FQC-02452 - Windows 7 Professional Upgrade License (Academic - Volume License)

    EDIT: Phoenix Software is my current supplier

    mb2k01 speaks the truth. You can buy the upgrade through the Select Agreement for 29+VAT from WStore

    If you require any further details then please do not hesitate to get in touch

    There is no full volume license, although there may be a full license at an educational price.

    Oh, and for the OP, it may be to do with the fact that XP home licenses don't qualify for a Windows 7 upgrade, *except* for Academic licenses (http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...0Licensing.pdf)

    This may be why you have a large cost, perhaps the LA has to pay more due to the above restriction and incorrectly assume you do too.

    Also remember that you need Suscription Advantage if you want Enterprise (which contains the funky features - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/ent.../features.aspx )

    Our Select reseller does not offer subscription advantage and only offers Professional version. Does anyone use a reseller which does?

    If "Subscription Advantage" is another term for "Software Assurance", then Phoenix Software do.
