    "the only students who would have the right to install the program software on their personal computers are those who are taking at least one credit class in the member department"

    The member department would in this case be ACM. Does ACM offer any one credit classes?
    I do not uinderstand your failure to understand.

    ACM is an association - not a department at any universtiy, college, or high school. The same way that Future Farmers of America is not a department at Texas A&M.

    MSDN Academic Alliance School Member Search

    Hello, I just registered to say thank you because I was looking for a means to find out if my school had a MSDNAA membership. And indeed it did, and upon going to my schools msdnaa page, I had remembered that I already been registered for the software center as I am a cs major. I am now downloading it for free. Thanks again. You saved me at most $299.99 and at least $19.

    Antman,

    Thanks for your patience. Found part of the answer I was looking for.

    Developer AA Licensing FAQ
    (Q) Can a non-University affiliated organization like a computer club purchase an MSDN AA membership for use by its members?
    (A) Sure, as long as the organization has one or more members who are currently enrolled in or teaching course(s) in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics.
    (Q) That’s great! So if my organization has some students and I purchase a membership in MSDN AA, does that mean that I can distribute MSDN AA software to all of my organization members?
    (A) Unfortunately, not. We restrict the use of MSDN AA software to students and faculty currently taking or teaching STEM courses.

    Still hoping to get an answer as whether or not some of the courses offered in the ACM student membership qualify as STEM courses.

    I have received an email requesting my information, just thought i'd let everybody know that they are going to check your validity and possibly close your account if you do not provide correct valid information that you are indeed a student.

    Here's a copy of the email:

    Your New ACM Student Membership (acmhelp@acm.org) said:
    Dear ****** ******,

    As part of our student offerings, we created the Student Academic Initiative (SAI) whereby we offer Student Members access to software that is made available through selected vendors. Currently, Microsoft, Sun, and CA make software available to Student Members.

    It is important for ACM to verify that the individuals taking advantage of the ACM Student Academic Initiative are indeed students. Therefore, we are asking you to provide us with the information below by Friday, Sept. 25th.

    * The Name of Your Faculty Advisor
    * Your Student Identification Number

    Log in at https://www.myACM.org with your ACM Web Account username and password and follow the link "My Student Profile" to provide us with this information.

    Thank you for your help in this matter!

    I have already provided them with the information they asked so they have nothing on me. But I'm wondering if they could blacklist the key that they give you if you fail to prove you're a student... Me wonders...

    Since the requirements for ACM to have access to MSDN AA is only "the organization has one or more members who are currently enrolled in or teaching course(s) in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics" I am not at this time comfortable in recommending that my student daughter provide her confidentital information to ACM. Until I find out more about ACM's credentials I am advising her not to provide this information.

    MSDNAA FAQs for Faculty: General Information About the Program

    Who may join the program?

    A. Eligibility for the MSDN Academic Alliance Program is as follows:
    In The United States:
    Membership in the MSDN Academic Alliance program is accepted on a per-department basis, rather than school-wide. It is available to appropriate departments within accredited academic institutions, including four-year universities, two-year colleges, technical schools, and high schools. Additionally, high schools can apply for the MSDN Academic Alliance High School program on a school-wide basis; please visit the High School AA page for additional information.

    Q. Can departments teaching disciplines other than Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) sign up for Developer AA?

    A. No, only departments teaching STEM disciplines are eligible for Developer AA.
    If you are trying to buy a MSDNAA : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/academic/dd756487.aspx

    I Think the best way to clarify is to ask from ACM about your issue. Coz, Yes MSDNAA provides ACM Students access, because in general, they are meant to be a valid STEM requiered Org. So your problem is with ACM weather a Non IT Student can get Membership ?

    Spanish version in both flavours is up.
    Was just about to post this.

    Do both Spanish and Chinese work on English like the French? I'm almost certain Spanish will do but I'm not so sure about the Chinese, anyone willing to test??

    Anyway, that's 8 keys for $19 now.... so glad I got in on this :)
    All keys work on the English version, they are universal, it doesnt mather whehter or not they were purchased with the Eng version. I had trouble to activate the x86 version a couple of days ago, but i think they were tweaking the activation servers in europe, now everything is working. so i got the french english and chinese keys working, with the x64 and one with the x86.
