Frequently asked questions (FAQ)
Which operating system license is a qualifying base license for Windows 10 Education / Enterprise from the EES contract?
The SCC will provide ITBs with a valid MAK for Windows and for Office upon request. The SCC will not assume responsibility or associated expense if this MAK is disabled.
Office 2019 may also be installed on all KIT computers that are publicly accessible. This includes, in particular, pool rooms and loan devices.
Furthermore, installation is permitted on removable workstations for the exclusive use of employees.
Sources: Product Terms, paragraphs 2.6.1, 2.6.3; Product Group statement: "Customers are not granted an extra on-premises license for Office Professional Plus for shared desktops. Based on the following terms, the licensed users may install a local copy of Office Professional Plus for their own use. According to a statement we received from the Business Group, it would be compliant, if another licensed user accesses this copy on a shared device, so it is not necessary to have multiple Office installations on the same device."
