About MSDN Subscriptions

MSDN Subscriptions provide software maintenance for Visual Studio and can help your development teams to be more efficient, effective, and productive. MSDN subscriptions provide a cost-effective way to license Microsoft platforms and tools, receive technical support, and gain priority access to new versions of Microsoft products, including Microsoft operating systems, server software, and productivity applications. MSDN Subscriptions perfectly complement Visual Studio with resources that help support your teams every step of the way.


Subscription Benefits

With a MSDN Subscription you get:

Developer Tools

MSDN Professional and Premium subscriptions are sold alongside Visual Studio. When customers choose to subscribe to MSDN they also receive rights to other Developer tools—including Visual Studio SourceSafe, Software and Driver Development Kits (SDKs/DDKs), and other components of the Microsoft Developer platform. Customers of Visual Studio Team System with MSDN Premium also receive an exclusive Workgroup Edition of Visual Studio Team Foundation Server, limited to five users.

Development and Test Licenses

Beyond tools for creating applications, Developers must be able to simulate production environments for iterative development and test. A core benefit of being an MSDN Subscriber is the exclusive access to the widest range of Microsoft products for creating these development and test environments.

Exclusive Access to Pre-Release Products

To stay ahead of the curve, Developers need access to new products and technologies before they reach general availability. MSDN Subscriptions provides access to pre-release versions of future Microsoft products and technologies not available outside closed programs such as the Technical Adoption or Rapid Deployment Programs (TAP/RDP). This includes most Betas, Community Technology Previews (CTPs), and occasional Alpha releases. For example, MSDN Subscribers received their first build of what became Windows Vista over three years before general availability.

Licenses for General Business Use

In addition to Developer tools and licenses limited to Development & Test, MSDN subscribers may also install and use one copy of Microsoft Office for any purpose. This benefit extends to the full range of desktop Office System products (with the exception of Project Professional).

Technical Support Incidents

To help with the greatest challenges of the development process, MSDN subscribers may turn to dedicated Microsoft support engineers for assistance. Every MSDN Subscription includes professional-grade, Developer-specific technical support incidents. With 24/7 Business-Critical service level, Support Incidents may be called upon for any situation.

Managed Newsgroups Support

For Developers the first port-of-call for answers is usually the community. Where the community cannot answer the toughest of questions, MSDN Subscribers have the exclusive guarantee of their question being answered. If not effectively answered by the community, posts to the MSDN Newsgroups from MSDN subscribers will be picked up by Microsoft engineers within 2 business days.

Online Concierge is an incomparable online resource for Developer information. This depth of information can be a challenge to navigate. MSDN Online Concierge is a chat-based service, providing subscribers with an exclusive guide to the online world of MSDN.

MSDN Library

MSDN Library is the definitive reference for developing on the Microsoft platform. MSDN Subscribers have access to the complete online library, and periodic updates for installation and offline review.

MSDN Magazine

MSDN Magazine, published by CMP Media in partnership with Microsoft, contains some of the most compelling editorial and articles on development, written by some of Microsoft’s top Developers. Published monthly, MSDN Magazine is available free to subscribers in North America, and for the cost of postage and packaging worldwide.

MSDN Flash

Millions of Developers receive the MSDN Flash e-mail newsletter every other week, with news and information personalized to their areas of focus. Subscribers can choose to get news related to their subscription.

Discounted Microsoft and MSDN Events Tickets

Microsoft Developer events, such as TechEd and PDC, are an opportunity for Microsoft, partners, and the Developer community to learn and exchange the latest in development. MSDN subscribers are regularly offered an exclusive discount to attend these events.

Partner Offerings

Developing on the Microsoft platform is enabled by a rich ecosystem of partner products, technologies, and services. MSDN Subscribers have access to exclusive discounts, free trials, and offers from the Microsoft partner ecosystem.

Customer Service

A dedicated network of customer service professionals in every region ensures subscribers can get any help they need with their subscription in their language and locale.
