Can you help me with my software licensing question?
I want to set up virtual machines to do testing of various applications. I would like to have 6 different virtual machines. My understanding is that this requires 6 separate Windows licenses (unfortunately all my applications run on Windows only).
I am trying to figure out what to do about buying Windows licenses. When I do searches, I see offerings for OEM licenses. Can I use those licenses? If not, do I have to buy straight from Microsoft?
I do not need a server OS, a client OS such as XP or Vista is sufficient.
Thanks Jim and Scott. Both of your answers make sense individually but I am confused if I need to buy 'full packaged' license versions + the VECD license. Is it one or the other or both?
