I would like to "test" out the performance of Office 2010 or 2013 in conjunction with our RDS environment before shelling out 10's of thousands of dollars... Before you say anything, 365 is not supported by our core app, so no... ;_;
Is 'testing' or 'evaluating' possible?
I've been told by microsoft, "Yes". I've been told by colleagues, "No".
I don't own a single volume license key for 02k10 or 02k13, thus I don't have a volume license key or volume license download copy of the iso. However, in order to get Office to install on an RDS server, Microsoft demands you use a VL copy of Office.
Technet MSDN is no more and MS's free Technet Evaluation Center led me to registering and downloading copies of Office 2010 and 2013 professional plus (wayyyy more than I need, just need core O.W.E.P.) When I attempt to install them, I get the "You need a volume license key, blah blah".
3 calls to India have yielded only headaches and constant re-routes.
Has anyone ever attempted this and/or succeeded?
