    Re: MSDN Academic Alliance programme

    The MSDN Academic Alliance (MSDN AA) is an annual membership programme that provides inexpensive software solutions for the computer science, software engineering and information systems departments in UK higher and further education.
    so from this it is not applicable to school but universities and FE collages

    It mentions pricing for High Schools as well though.

    High School was listed when I tried to register and the price was the lower of the 2 stated.

    Re: MSDN Academic Alliance programme

    I'm really confused about all of this. It does sound good but seems to have alot of red tape surrounding it. I'm a Computing / ICT teacher and this would be useful for students and XP sounds great but you could not install XP on the 30 machines and use in a sense free licenses because this would be classed as being part of the infastructure.

    So in brief you can get the software but only if it's for testing not for normal every day use. Is that correct?

    That's how I read it Paul. But then why would you want to validate the licence - most products have a limited licence of 90 days that would cover that sort of usage [test installs etc] - so what would be the point of this? Seems from that reasoning that this must mean installations that are a little more permanent.

    Guess we have to wait for some confirmation on that.

    Re: MSDN Academic Alliance programme

    Still waiting to hear back but I have spoken with a friend at a HE establishment who have this (not under his control ... another dept) and if the course was OCR's iPro or you ran M$ courses then installing the OS and hooking it up to the system may be part of the course ... it cannot be a permanent part of the infrastructure ... ie you cannot buy kit with no OS and stick this on.

    The upgrade from W9x / W2K to XP Pro is covered under the Select Agreement (as is the office pro license) and it is aimed at schools that may have just got office standard (no Access) who want Access ... or students at home.

    Also waiting to hear back from our Select Agreement holders for info. Anyone would think that it is Friday and they have gone home early.
