    Ok i need to find a deal for Office 2007. Problem is we need it to work on 10 pcs. All i can find are single user licence. Does anyone know of a supplier where i can get a 10 user multi licence. Or have MS changed it so that you can only get single user licences, if you want a VLK you need to buy direct from them and it seems maybe pay a yearly fee? Is that right?

    You need to have a chat with a reseller, perhaps talking to MS Licensing may help point you in the right direction tho.

    My understanding however is that you will need to buy Office 2010 with downgrade rights (I am assuming that you can't actually buy 2007 now that 2010 has launched).

    I can still internally buy Office 2007, but seems like all the local e-shops have swapped over to 2010...

    You will need to go the volume license route and I think for 10PCs you can create a new eopen agreement with MS.

    I think that is the right agreement - they chage it everyother week:dry

    If you need a contact I know a good firm who are helping us with our licensing at the moment.

    Thanks guys. I'm not sure what we're doing is right but compamy suggesting we buy teh MLK office 2007 and use our oem disks.
    Or else buy 10 office 2007 disks at retail. and yes you can still get in in places even though 2010 is out.

    Not really the best way to go m8. OEM lics are NOT transferable between PCs.

    10 is ideal to start a volume lic as has been said. You will buy 10 lic and a media kit. I expect the lics will be for office 2010 but using the downgrade rights you can use a media kit for 2007 to install and all will be fine.

    Just out of curiosity, why Office 2007 and not 2010?

    (yes, I know there can be many reasons, but it's still nice to understand why a customer chooses 2007 over 2010 for such a small number of licenses :) )

    The customer doesnt liek change, its that simple. They already have 07 on one pc and just want it on more. Plus they feel 2010 is still too new to be reliable. at the end of teh day its thier call not ours.
