Can someone tell me how the licensing works with AppV?

If i sequence e.g. MS Project 2010 do i pay just for the Office instance on the central site or do i pay a per user license?

or how does it work?

If i stream the app directly from the Distribution Point then when the user has closed the virtual app does the licence become available for another user? I need clarity on this.

I hope someone can help

I hope someone can help All this information can be found on the Microsoft site, albeit well hidden and seemingly constantly on the move - the link I have is now broken. Failing that, your distributor/dealer should be able to supply license terms and conditions.

There must be something available than what you've mentioned above?

if your link is broken that doesnt really help me unfortunatley. Does anyone have anything written on this? with regards to app-v?

I've just googled around for 5 minutes and found this link:

http://www.insidetheregistry.com/content/viewarticle.aspx?articleid=1731

Which has links to Microsoft pages detailing App-V licensing.

Why haven't you contacted Microsoft on this and got the information 'from the horses mouth' in the first place?

Does Google not work in your location? This is as good a place as any to start.

You haven't said that you've done your own research on this, or that you've come across conflicting information and provided links.

Because you've not provided this information and asked a question that could be easily answered with a call to Microsoft you've been given pointers of where to go to find an answer to your issue on the web.

You've then come back saying that the advice isn't good enough and doesn't help you, when you have been given information for you to act upon to find the actual answer to your query.

Then you've had some attitude back because, as you can understand, it appears that you are asking the forum to do your work for you - which will never happen.

The posters on these fora will help those that help themselves, and you havent appeared to help yourself.
We all have our own jobs to do, without doing yours for you.

You question seems to be about licensing of virtualized applications instead of App-V itself, right?

In that case it's very simple: the normal licensing terms of the application still applies, be it in virtual or non-virtual form. Virtualizing e.g. Project 2010 does not change Project's licensing terms in any way.

More specifically speaking of Microsoft's own products: MS has always stated that with App-V (or SoftGrid before that) in context of e.g. Office you have usual(?) per-machine licensing as usual even though App-V can make it look like that application has disappear from the machine. In technical sense, in every virtual application deployment scenario App-V offers with or without SCCM integration there's always the fact that app gets cached in App-V Client's package cache. And for things like Office apps it's simply that if bits of the Office has touched machine - although being in App-V cache rather than in C:\Program Files - then that machine needs to be licensed.

I'm not aware of Microsoft changing this policy still, there's no concept of floating/concurrent licensing for Office apps (not talking about TS scenarios here).
