Hi People,

I got 200 laptop users already installed with Office 2007 professional, I have just deployed 100x Citrix XenDesktop VDI desktop Windows 7 VM in the office to allow secure access to some VLAN with sensitive data.

In this VM image, the same Micrsoft Office edition is installed and made available to the users.

Can anyone here please assist me what licensing type do I need to get and how many ?

Thanks

you should use a KMS server for the technical part of licensing...
