MS Office install on 2012 Terminal Server

In the past installing Office on a 2008 Terminal Server required a volume license.  I now have a 2012 Terminal Server and my client wants to install Office 2007.  I was pretty sure that would still require her purchasing volume license key version of Office whether it would be for Office 2007 or upgrading to Office 2013  

However, when I read about Office 2013 plus being installed on a 2012 server -- technet seems to state that a simple download will work and you shouldn't receive the error that you have a volume license key

Would appreciate help or info regarding this issue.

you need software assurance to allow downgrade rights for older versions and remote use rights for using it on a terminal server which means either device licencing or user based licencing to allow remote use


that article that you have found is for MSDN and Technet users which is not for production licencing.

here is a good licencing brief which states the rules for usage
