Licensing brief: Licensing Windows client and server operating systems in multiuser scenarios
Applies to all Volume Licensing programs
This licensing brief can help clarify Microsoft Volume Licensing policies for the Windows client, Windows Server, and Windows
MultiPoint Server operating systems when the potential for multiuser scenarios exists. The Windows client operating system
license terms do not permit multiple users to access or otherwise use one licensed copy of the software simultaneously. However,
Windows Server operating systems and Windows MultiPoint Server are designed and licensed for multiuser scenarios and should
be used for all Windows multiuser scenarios.
