Microsoft Action Pack earlier years Software Right List

Hi,

To keep a long story short, for an internal audit we're trying to determine what the Microsoft Action Pack Subscription (MAPS) Software Licenses for Internal Use List was in 2010 and 2012.

We have documentation on what they were in 2007 (see attached), 2014 (see attached program guide on page 5 from Microsoft) and of course what it is now - 2016.

Attached will give you some idea of what I'm looking for. We need the list that shows the license count of each product and what product was licensed that year. This is purely for an internal audit, I know that Microsoft Action Pack Software is meant to be upgraded within 12 months when new versions come out, etc.

So based on the attached, we are looking for what was licensed and in what quantity in 2010 and 2012. If anyone ever kept a record of it or printed it to PDF, if we could have a copy that would be super awesome! Thanks.

Could you create a spreadsheet and compare what's covered under the old agreement and what's covered under the new one, noting where it's changed and just trying to figure those out? For example, both the old and new appear to cover an Exchange server with 10 CALs, as well as 10 licenses for Office and Outlook. The new one covers 10 licenses for Lync where the old one has Communicator, but that's just product evolution and not really a change. As far as I can tell, the license counts (or even what's covered) don't vary much at all between these two agreements (aside from products which no longer exist, like "Small Business Accounting 2007, a product I personally liked), and I wouldn't have expected the years in between to be much different from either.

A quick search doesn't turn up a copy of the terms you're looking for, but why don't you compare them to see if any of the differences even apply to products you're using - for example, if the difference is with something like SCOM and you're not using it, then it doesn't even matter.

Would that work for your needs to help narrow things down?
