This post is to clear the misunderstanding “doesn’t qualify for Volume Licensing because they don’t have 5 computers.” Microsoft, Volume Licensing programs, such as Open License and Open Value, are designed to be available to clients with as few as 2 computers “Both OL and OV require a minimum order of 5 Licenses (for Open License) or 5 Licenses+Software Assurance or Software Assurance alone (for Open Value). As you can see in the pic, by purchasing two Windows Upgrades, two OLs and one Streets & Trips license, they have purchased 5 total licenses, which would qualify them for OL. Now, if they had chosen to add SA to those so that they would receive the upgrade protection, Office home use rights, ability to spread their payments over three years vs. paying up front, etc., then they would qualify for Open Value since they would have purchased five License + SA items in one order. So contrary to the belief, NO, you don’t need to have 5 computers to qualify for OL or OV VL programs at Microsoft and companies with as few as 2 computers can easily qualify for both.
