    According to Microsoft:
    Microsoft Open License is a software volume licensing program designed for corporate, government, charity, and academic customers purchasing as few as five licenses.

    According to our software vendor (
    Microsoft Open [Academic] products are licenses only. Media and documentation must be obtained separately by purchasing the media and documentaion kits listed below. After you get your media, you must call 888-652-2342 [microsoft product activation center] to register the media and then get the key code to unlock the media.

    Hope this helps!
