5. Software Assurance

The Software Assurance element of this agreement allows you to:

  • Upgrade existing copies of software when a new release is issued.
  • Use an earlier version of software, for example this allows you to run Windows XP on a machine originally licensed for Windows 7.
  • Use a second operating system on a PC, for example provided the University owns an original operating system license for the computer either Windows or Mac OS, then you can use the Campus operating system upgrade license not only to upgrade the original license to Windows 7 or XP but also to run a copy of Windows 7 or XP on your pc under Bootcamp, Virtual PC or other similar products.
