  • A MSDN subscription is linked to an individual person so the machines that you install the software on can only be used by the person who owns the subscription i.e. If Jeff has a MSDN subscription however TWHarrington doesn't, only Jeff can use the machines you installed the software on. If TWHarrington uses one of the machines, you are in breach of the MSDN Licence Agreement.

  • Yes, the software can be installed on multiple PCs and you would use a different license key for each activation (up to your alloted number).
