    Has anyone tried the 64 bit vista in the action pack? Is it an upgrade or full product? Cheers

    Think it is the upgrade mate. You might be able to install it from scratch and then run the upgrade on the original install though.

    Nice one mate, wonder why the 32bit version was only an upgrade. :blink

    No, you just have to sign up for it mate. Pay the £200 and get an Action Pack through the door a few weeks later. Think there is soon to be an on-line test before you can get it though.

    I think the tests are in place now, so you might have to do one to get the pack UCM.

    As mentioned elsewhere on the forum about the action pack, I think BM mentioned that he was looking at getting a Technet Plus Direct subscription. I've also been looking at this and see the same benefits without the mandatory training courses. The problem is that I think that it costs a little more, for me about 100 francs more. With the Technet Plus Direct you also have to download the software but with the Technet Plus Single User you get the content on CD/DVD. I don't know that it's worth 400 francs more (in my case) just to have it on cd.

    It might be something else for you all to look at.

    Any of you guys know what the difference is between the Action Pack and Technet? I've currently got the Technet Plus Direct and it's coming up to renewal time, and if the AP is better I'll probably change.

    Cheers

    With the Action Pack, they send you the CDs/DVDs (and a binder to put them in). They give you 10 licenses for each client-based app and OS, and 1 license for each server-based app and OS. However... the only Vista they include is an upgrade version of Vista Business. Pity the poor soul who doesn't have an extra copy of XP lying around to upgrade! :ohmy Plus, with Vista Business, you can't work with ANY of the things that come in Vista Home Premium (media stuff) or Ultimate.

    With TechNet Plus Direct, you have to download the images and burn them to CD/DVD. The licenses, as far as I am aware, are unlimited. And best of all, EVERY version of Vista are included - full versions, not upgrades. At least, this is what I've been told by someone who currently has TechNet Direct.

    Both restrict you to using the software for use in a non-production environment... meaning, you can't use it to host an external Web site, but you can use it to train yourself on an internal Web site.

    Yeah, BM, there's 1 iso for Vista that includes all versions sans Enterprise -- that's a separate iso.

    Yep... and keys for each version. Wish they included those for the Action Pack's Vista...
