This article describes volume licensing of the Academic version of Microsoft Office 2000 and Microsoft Office 2000 Service Release 1 (SR-1). Academic Open License customers and Select Agreement customers should have the ability to perform multiple installations. This new process for the Academic version of Office 2000 was communicated to Open License and Select Agreement customers in letters from the Office Product Team on May 6, 1999. The new process for Office 2000 SR-1 was communicated to Open License, Select, and Enterprise Agreement customers in letters from the Office Product Team on February 15, 2000.
In Office 2000 Academic edition and Office 2000 SR-1, Microsoft includes the new Registration Wizard, an easy-to-use technology that automates customer registration. There is a limitation of two registrations per media, consistent with the terms of the End User License Agreement. This affects Academic Open License customers, Open License Customers, Enterprise Agreement customers, and Select customers who install from retail or fulfillment media.
Using the Open Product Key or Select Product KeyOpen License customers need to acquire an Open Product Key to facilitate multiple installations from retail or fulfillment media. Select customers need to acquire a Select Product Key. During installation of Microsoft Office 2000 or an individual Office 2000 program, you are prompted for a 25-character Product Key. Instead of using the Product Key located on the retail or fulfillment CD jewel case, you must use the Open Product Key or the Select Product Key. These Product Keys facilitate multiple installations from a single retail or fulfillment CD.
WARNING: If you do not use the Open Product Key or Select Product Key, you are required to register. The third and subsequent registrations will fail.
Obtaining Open Product KeysExisting Open License customers can obtain their Open Product Key by contacting the Microsoft Registration Center for their region, or by accessing the eOpen License Web site (https://eopen.microsoft.com
(https://eopen.microsoft.com)). All licenses purchased prior to Feb. 1, 1998, will not be listed on the eOpen license Web site, and instead you must refer to the blue certificate that Microsoft mailed to you at the time of purchase.
The phone number for the Registration Center is provided with the letter.
NOTE: Contact your Microsoft reseller if you do not know how to access your information on the eOpen License Web site.
New Open License customers will receive their Open Product Keys with their Open License Agreement data, which is stored on the eOpen License Web site. The Open Product Key appears next to the Office 2000 family stock-keeping unit (SKU) purchased on the License Agreement.
To obtain their Open Product Key or Select Product Key, Academic Open License customers must provide the following:
MSDN Volume LicensesThe following Web site is for licenses that contain Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) products:
