Is there a way around using the Microsoft Action Pack licenses on Citrix? If no, do the Microsoft Technnet
liscenses have different rules?

With MAPs you have certian amouts of licenses that are for internal use.  So, you can use the internal licenses for use as long as you are not using more then you are alotted.  Such as, you can use 10 licenses of MS Office that is what I can use.  Now with that said.  To make sure you do not brech the license agreement you should contact Microsoft to confirm the you are not breaching the agreement.  With Technet you will have lcenses for internal use, however, again, contact MS to confirm that you can use the licenses in the way you wish to use them.

Hello

As I know the MAP can be used for business, technet are for testing purpose, but it can also be used in internal. Anyway this type of licenses are for 1 year. If not you can lease the licences using OSL. for more info look on the www.microsoft.com/licensing or call an Microsoft Partner in your area.

We are using the right number.  Just won't work on Citrix.   If I install them without Citrix, they work fine.

I must be explaining myself incorrectly.  we buy the action pack every year.  We buy a current Citrix liscence every year.  the action pack office lisenses work fine on the local network.  When I add them to citrix for the remote users (still correct number purhcased), we get an error that says something like they won't work.  We are running Office 2010 in the local office and publishing Office 2003 when users go off site.  Very silly.

The question revolves around the fact that internally we are using our Action Pack version of Microsoft Office.  It will not work in a terminal server environment.  Does anyone know how to resolve this issue.  On the other hand can we subscribe to Technet and legally use the MS Office internally in a terminal server environment?
