    VLK meaning Volume License Key?

    I would imagine a Volume License (Schools Agreement, MOLP or Select) would do.

    Would be handy to know a bit of how it works in lancs - privately if needed as our county is a touch confusing at times with MS licensing

    Regards
    Nath.

    Our [Nathan's and mine] local authority charge us an admin fee of £12 for a copy of the CD, and we have to return that to them.

    What a swiz! One of the above mentioned folks was in our school the other week, let me have a couple of cds I was missing! They're only copies mind - do any other Lancs people find that they don't last very long from Westfield? Or is it just me not treating them with the care and respect they deserve

    I convert everything to ISO's as soon as I get them. CD's just aren't reliable.

    @Chris: Ramesys are cheaper for teh Select licenses and if you buy enough they'll chuck in extra licenses and GENUINE media kits for free!

    Been buying licenses and CDs from Civica - CDs are 20 quid, but are originals - also convert them to ISOs immediately!
