Later this year we shall be renewing the rental agreement which allows us to use a selection of Microsoft Products on our computers, from 1st September 2009 we shall cease to rent Microsoft Frontpage/Sharepoint Designer

Moving away from Microsoft Frontpage/Sharepoint Designer under Campus

Microsoft are making Sharepoint Designer 2007 available a a free license download, despite the name change this software product is actually the "next version" following on from Microsoft Frontpage 2003, some of you will already have moved to Microsoft Sharepoint Designer 2007, those who have not yet moved should plan to do so by 31st August 2009

To download a free copy of Microsoft Sharepoint Designer 2009 visit http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointdesigner/default.aspx

If there is a particular reason for you to continue using Microsoft Frontpage then the only way to obtain a license to permit this is for you to purchase a copy of Microsoft Expression Web, under the Microsoft Select agreement and then to use the associated downgrade rights that come with this software in order to continue running Microsoft Frontpage.
