I am developing an application for a client which requires SQL Server 2012 Standard Edition. I have tried the license advisor (http://mla.microsoft.com/default.aspx) from Microsoft and I have a few questions

1. One question asked was "Indicate the number of desktops at your organization.". Will this be based on our company (the application developer) or our client (where it will be installed)? And does this have any affect on the pricing?

2. What is the agreement term?

3. Do you usually include Software Assurance when including it in a package with your application?

4. After filling out the form, I was given a quote with 1st Year Total and Grand Total of $8,668.00. But upon checking the Full Report, there's a Year 1 Total, Year 3 Total, Year 5 Total which adds up to a total of $26,004.00. Do I have to renew the license every 2 years?

there are a few types to license SQL,. I advice that you contact a Microsoft representative and get advice from him. don't follow any programs or advisers.
