Microsoft have added the Ultimate version of its Vista operating system to the list of upgrade versions available under the terms of the Microsoft Campus Agreement. Disk sets are available for both University owned machines and for work at home use. In both cases you must obtain a disk pack for each machine that you wish to upgrade since Vista Ultimate is activated on a per copy basis and does not use a KMS server.
This Multilanguage pack replaces the product known as "Proofing Tools" and is available to us under the terms of the Microsoft Campus Agreement. Distribution of this product requires a separate DVD for each language that you require to use.
Both Vista Ultimate and the Office 2007 Language Packs are available via the Computing Services Shop Price List
