EULA questions

P: n/a
In the EULA theres this paragraph

14. SOFTWARE TRANSFER. The initial user of the Software may make a one-time
permanent transfer of this EULA and Software to another end user, provided
the initial user retains no copies of the Software. This transfer must
include all of the Software (including all component parts, the media and
printed materials, any upgrades (including any Qualifying Software as
defined in Section 11.3), this EULA, and, if applicable, the Certificate of
Authenticity). The transfer may not be an indirect transfer, such as a
consignment. Prior to the transfer, the end user receiving the Software
must agree to all the EULA terms.
well, if its activated already, how do you transfer it or tell MS to remove
the activation so it can be transfered? thanks! I've found nothing in my
search so far

What do you mean by "activated? I'm not aware of any versions of Visual
Studio (except perhaps academic versions) that require product activation.
There's nothing to prevent you from installing it on a different computer,
or multiple computers.

If your version does require activation, you could probably just call
Microsoft to allow it to be activated. The new owner might need some
documentation to prove that the license was transfered (rather than an
illegal copy), like a letter from the seller.

thanks for this information, by activated i mean went though the activation
wizzard. my copy of VS.NET did have an activation in it, I thought it was
part of all VS.net's? I guess I might have a special key that requires it.
It's VS.NET professional.

Hmm... my version of VS.Net required me to enter the serial number, but that
doesn't lock it to a particular machine. I installed it on my laptop and
desktop. (Which is allowed by the EULA, FWIW.) It's not like the WinXP
product activation, which "phones home" to a Microsoft database to check
whether the software has been installed on another machine.

If you're just asking about the serial number activation, it shouldn't be a
problem. But even if your version is somehow different, I think Microsoft
is pretty understanding when it comes to transfering the license to another
user/machine. Might be a hassle -- a telephone call -- but shouldn't be a
real problem.

If you uninstall the software, and then give it to someone else, they
will have to activate it. AFAIK, if it won't activate electronically,
they can activate it over the phone. I've had this happen with
Windows XP (since I've rebuilt my machine a few times).
