Visual Studio ENT - Additional Benefits (Office for production use).
I am looking for information regarding the additional benefits of a Visual Studio Enterprise subscription obtained from MPN [competency benefit].
The Visual Studio Licensing Whitepaper document states that the VS ENT subscribers may use 1 copy of Office 2019 Professional Plus for production (non-development) use.
- What about Office 2021? (available for download from my.visualstudio.com)
The above-mentioned document was published in August 2019.
- Is there any newer version of this document that includes information about Office 2021?
@MGRAJ Note that for Visual Studio Enterprise Subscriptions via MPN benefits different terms might apply (NFR - Not for Resales license terms) - also noted in the white paper, and here: Visual Studio subscriptions offered in the Microsoft Partner Network | Microsoft Docs
Unfortunately, I see that the NFR license terms are not available under the link mentioned, on this website or the licensing guide.
I would recommend to contact MPN suport via Partner Center to ask for a copy of the Visual Studio NFR license terms (or give the answer directly) - as far as I can remember using Office for production was indeed *not* allowed for NFR Visual Studio in MPN benefits - since you get Office Apps (M365 Apps) also via normal MPN benefits, but only official confirmation would be the license terms.
