A software licence is required for every copy of a Microsoft product installed on the hard disk of a PC, the software should not be copied to another PC without first purchasing another licence. The exception to this rule is for the Microsoft Office software (no other applications) where for each licence acquired, you may make a second copy of the Software and install it on either a laptop or desktop computer for the exclusive use of the person who is the primary user of the first copy of the software. This is for work related purposes only. Work at Home copies are licensed separately from the corresponding copies run on "At Work Computers" and must be installed using official Microsoft work-at-home media obtained from the Computing Services Online Shop.
The licences purchased under the Microsoft Select Agreement are perpetual and subject to the Microsoft 'Product Use Rights' current at the time of purchase, these are accessible on the Web at Usage Terms
Under the concurrency rules for Select 6.6, a Microsoft licence may not be shared concurrently on different workstations attached to the same network server. You must acquire and dedicate a licence for each separate computer on which the Software Product is installed or run from a server.
Please Note that before a Department or College can purchase any software from the Computing Services Shop it is necessary to have a software card and an official Departmental or College order. Ensure you bring these to the shop when you come to buy software.
