Getting MSCRM licence for development envoirment RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have been working on MSCRM as a developer. I need to install MSCRM on my machine. Wanted to know what product key should be used while deployment. There are keys available online which have 90 days validity.

    My development environment is prepared by our infra team, they will be using MSDN licence for OS and required software tools for development and deployment (MS SQL, VS 2010, .....) of MS CRM.

    I would like to know, what product key should be used for making use of the MSCRM 2013 server as development server ?

  • Hi Sarfaraj,

    I think you can start development with 90 days validity keys also. You need to purchase MS CRM 2013 on premise license from microsoft

  • Thanks Saad.

    If our org is having membership of Microsoft partners network, then is it possible to have the MSCRM developer licence or Does MSCRM works with MSDN licence. And if we want to acquire membership of Microsoft partner network, what are the requirements. My previous company were having MS partner membership, and all our developer team had multiple MSCRM server installed. Hence, wanted to know this for my knowledge.

  • for non production uses, you can use MSDN license. You will need to purchase a key when going live.

    please check with your partner for further information.
