Using single license of Microsoft Project on single computer by multiple users

If I buy single license of either retail or Volume License of MS Project (Std or Pro, not Office 365) is it OK for multiple users, not simultaneously though to login with their own AD account to a physical computer (not via RDP) and use single copy of MS project to edit files?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you read the license agreement it should clearly state what you are allowed to do and not do.

I believe this would be a case of DEVICE licensing.

Thank you!

MS license fine print is often not clear what you can or cannot do, that's why I'm asking the question here :-)

And you want to take advice on how to interpret a legal document from strangers on a web site?  The problem is your asking US to interpret the licensing agreement for you and your circumstances.

If you have volume or normal license usualy BOX / retail. No 365. Irs licensed per PC for one user in same time and its alowed to used on si gle pc by multiple users not in same time.

If you using RDP you must have volume License for every user.

If you have 365 its alowed to used by only one user instalwd on 5devices and used only one in same time.
Dr. Thomas HenkelmannDirector Consulting ServicesCommented:

for your scenario it's quite easy. You can either by a retail or volume license SKU for a DEVICE, not a user. Then the ONE device where you use this license is good for as many users as you like under the assumption of no parallel use.
