I have a question for a customer. They just bought Microsoft Dynamics Server and 30 client licences for it. Since the company is liquidating they want to sell the 50k investment. Does anyone know if they can transfer the licence to another company?

Other option would to keep the licence in their name and lease the server and software to another company?

This is unfamilar grounds for me just want to make sure.

My understanding on Microsoft licensing in general is that it is not transferable.  If someone was buying ALL the assets of a company (ie, an acquisition) or if the company was legally changing its name, I believe those are the only times the name of the license holder can be changed.  And leasing the software is not something that is allowed either without an agreement with Microsoft that allows this.  I would also recommend calling the Microsoft licensing team and asking them, a lot of this stuff changes quite often..

I found the eula from microsoft for dynmaics that states any transfer of the software must be in written consent or a court order to sell the assets. Its looks like its possible but there is some red tape
