Can you help me with my software licensing question?
I have a client that would like to upgrade MS Access on his TS to 2010. From the research I have done, it appears that he needs to actually buy a $160+ copy of MS Access for every single user that logs onto the Server? This seems a little ridiculous to me. Prior to 2010 it was possible (although I'm not sure about legal) to install a retail version of any of the Office suite and away you went!
I just today tried installing a retail version of MS Access on their server and was greeted with a nice little message saying that I couldn't install this on a Terminal Server.
I am aware of the Runtime edition of Access and maybe that is the route we will have to go. I could install the full version on a client computer and use it there.
Do I really need to purchase a license for every single user?
