Can I buy licenses one at a time. I'm going to be buying w2k from somebody else who's never used the cd. However, they only have a 5 license pack. I need 7. Can I buy 2 somewhere?

I take it that you are speaking about Volume Licensing here..  Not individual..  I love volume licensing, as it only requires one product key, and allows for much more flexibility..  Just call your local MS rep and they will fix you up..   I believe they run approx $100 per license, and can be bought individually...   Have the license info ready to give to them..  They will send you an email with the licenses attached..

I thought MS only sold in packs of 5 :)

The last time I bought them was a year ago or more...  I believe I purchased 8 or 9, and I had no problem..  Things could have changed since then, or maybe my memory is fuzzy..  Old age, you know..  :)

I just reviewed the license agreement..  You are corect.. the initial order must be for a min of 5 licenses...  I guess it comes down to what kind of licenses he is buying in that pack..??   Don't know how MS deals with reselling a package of 5 volume licenses, if that is what he is buying, of course.

Guess I was both wrong and right. I knew 5 was a key number for some reason. :)

You can buy a 5 CAL pack - it will be a Windows 2003 version - but you have downgrade rights on them.
