    Unanswered: Licensing


    Can anyone give me some idea of licensing prices for Access 2003?

    The scenario I'm thinking of is something like 2000 machines needing to use it, but probably only 50 of them might need it at the same time.
    Is it possible to have Access stored on a server(s) and have 50 licences allowing any 50 out of the 2000 users to be using it concurrently?
    I've been finding it hard to get this kind of information online...

    Also if anyone know a lower cost solution to this, I would love to know

    thanks in advance,
    T Moakes.

    I would go down the line Developers pack

    Then you only need 1 Llicense

    Then Turn it into a EXE

    Install on your computers

    Been There had 30 computer its the way I did it
    hope this help

    See clear as mud

    Right, so Microsoft are happy to allow companies to use 1 license for to cover 50 concurrent users across 2000 computers in this way?

    What is the drawback of that kind of setup?
    It sounds great, but almost too good to be true...

    Does anyone know where I can actually find the licensing costs for MS Office / Access without having to phone someone for a quote? I'm just wondering how it stacks up against things like StarOffice in terms of price on this sort of scale. (would also be interested in upgrade costs from Office 2000)

    Thanks for the reply,
    T Moakes

    the dev jobbie lets you distribute your application to any number of users using the Access runtime. one-time fee, infinite distribution.

    there are almost no snags except:

    -- A-runtime is slightly less forgiving: it will find the smallest error in your code and crash.

    -- Try buying the dev rev for A2k today unless you are "educational" and you want to play on e-Bay. under certain circumstances (including NOT living in Switzerland) you can buy the current dev and beg M$ to downgrade you...

    gosh life is strange!
