Microsoft Launch Events Question!

Recommended Posts

I recently learned of a Microsoft launch event in my area for Office 2007, and the Microsoft site says that if I register and attend I will receive a free copy of Office Professional 2007 at the event. So, my question is, does anyone know if this software is fully functional with a license to keep it for as long as I want, or is it just promotional software that will expire? If anyone has any info, please post. Thanks!

it use to be fully functional. I don't know if they changed the way they do it or not, a buddy of mine use to get all of his Microsoft software for free this way.

Thanks for the replies, DLewis and Swimmer. I registered to attend a couple of days ago and only about 15 minutes after I registered, registration closed. I guess these events must be popular. Even after I registered, I wasn't sure if I was going to go or not, but I guess I will attend. If anyone else has any info on these launch events or on the software that they give away, PLEASE POST! Thanks!

Yes, they give you FULL function software, it's just in the form of a download, not a CD or DVD. They do this because the majority of people attending are IT Pro's, so if they give a copy away free, there's a good chance the Tech will recommend it to their employers. If you attend, you will be given a PIN and URL to get your software. I go to these on a regular basis, and I have gotten Office Premium 2000, Virtual PC, just to name a couple. I'm going to one on Feb 22nd.  :-P
