I've written an SDK/Toolset, that I'd like to sell by license (i.e. 1 Developer license = x, 3-5 Developer license = y, Unlimited Developer license = z). Anyone have a link to a tutorial/3rd party SDK that does this?

Do any of the following require additional SQL licensing(ie will i have to upgrade to a SQL 2008 database license)?
Using SQL 2008 reporting services with SQL 2005 database on the same physical server.
Using SQL 2008 reporting services with SQL 2005 database on same physical computer but in a virtual server environment.
Using SQL 2008 reporting services with SQL 2005 database with reporting services installed on a separate physical server.
I am creating a VM for the development team of an upcoming project and have a question around licensing.
The MSDN download for SQL Server 2008 R2 now comes pre-pidded. Does this mean that I can download and install the full server install on the VM using the pre-pidded product key? All the developers have their own MSDN subscriptions so they would
have legitimate licenses. I just don't want them to have to install SQL on the VM before they start work.
Ideally I will sysprep the images using the new prepared image functionality in R2.
My thought was to download the MSDN iso and then extract it to a folder on the VM. Then I can run a prepared image install and sysprep the image. I can then script up the final part of the install to run when the VM is first fired up. The
only issue here is if the license key would have to change. Hopefully I can confirm that the pre-pidded download will be fine for all developers with a valid MSDN subscription.
Is office communicator coming with SharePoint 2010? Or do we need to buy Office Communicator separately?
I know the same question is being asked many time from you, but I am curious to know the answer to my question.
SQL Server licensing says you don't have to purchase any new license for (Mirroring, Clustering, Log Shipping) as long as it is not up and running beyond 30 days and less or equal processors then the active sql server.
I want to check how the licensing works when the DR site is setup with SQL Transactional Replication, where the target server is just a stand-by but active.
Please Advise. Thanks in Advance
We just have VMWare, we are looking at installing a one VM with 4 procesors using the per processor model and SQL 2008 R2. We cant work out if we need one license or 4 for the server.
We know we have 2 hosts with 2 Processors & 6 Cores and HHT Enabled = 48 Processors but cant make sense of microsofts licensing docs.
Can Anyone Assist
We purchased a company about 2 years ago, we have a SQL Standard box with the CD's and Product Key.
How can we find out if this is a per server licenses or cal's (per user)
I am using InfoPath 2007. I intend to design and distribute Rich Client forms only, and once the user fills the form, they will submit the data to a Web Service or Email the form data (xml). I am aware that each user will need to have InfoPath 2007 installed
on their computer, which is ok for me. My question is, apart from purchasing the Office InfoPath 2007 (which in my case comes with Office 2007 Enterprise), are there any other licences I will need in order to deploy my solution?
Thanks and regards.
Currently we are upgrading our SQL Server 2000 box to 2008 R2 Enterprise. However, one of the apps locks itself to the Standard edition and will not install to Enterprise (without an additional 100K). With SQL Server Enterprise you can install
multiple instances of SQL Server without additional licensing--my question is, can one of the instances be a downgraded Standard version installation from the SQL Server Enterprise license, or do we have to get an additional SQL Server Standard license for
the same box?
All licenses we are looking at moving to are SQL 2008 R2 processor licenses.
As far as i know, excel services require enterprise licensing. Anyway, now in office 2010 - the office web apps (which include excel in web) are included also in the standard edition.
So - in case i want to publish excel in SharePoint - are both editions may work? which functionality do we miss when having just the standard edition? (interactivity? use parameters?...)
i am in kind of a big problem, i have created a Windows application with perfect Licensing in any environments excepts for VMs, people can install a licensed version of my application on VM and then just copy the VM on other multiple
machines, the application works just fine with that single license... How can i avoid that...
P.S. - using centralized server or USB Dongle or not allowing installation on VMs are not feasible solutions for me.
I've not been able to find a categorical answer to this question. Apologies if it has been answered before.
We have a scenario where SSRS standard edition is installed on one server with a processor licence and we have SSAS Enterprise Edition installed on a different server using a User CAL license model. Reports access the SSAS database using a single specified
user. So all reports that are run on the SSRS server can be run by specified people but only the 'report user' accesses the SSAS database on behalf of those reports.
So the question is, do all the people who run the SSRS Reports need to have a CAL for the SSAS server - as well as them being covered by the processor licence for the SSRS server. Or is it just the SSRS server that needs a CAL (either as a device CAL
or as the 'reporting user' User CAL)?
Thanks in advance.
