Wouldn't it be more appropriate to ask Microsoft? –  John Gardeniers Aug 13 '09 at 8:16
    
Indeed. You pay MS good money for MDSN or TechNet, if you have questions about it, just ask them. –  ThatGraemeGuy Aug 13 '09 at 9:32

MSDN software is for development and test only (with the exception of one instance of Office for MSDN editions including Office), and usually limited to 10 instances.

In the past MSDN activating keys have been documented as limited to 10 activations, but appears to be possible to get more (or the counts reset). But then I've never pushed the limit.

Normal retail keys don't have a hard activation limit, its more of a limit on the rate of activations.
