My college asked to buy original software which are needed to install on 20 computers.
They want
1. Visual Studio to run Visual Basic on that.
2. Oracle database.
My questions are,
1. Can I install Visual Studio with the same license number in all 20 computers?
2. How to buy oracle database for windows 7 and can I install it with the same license number in all 20 computers?
Thanks in advance.

Hi ankar.pratik :welcome: to BC

Can I install Visual Studio with the same license number in all 20 computers?

Pay for a single license, and install on 20 PC's? No you cant legally do that.  You need to look into  Volume licensing. Otherwise you would have 1 legal copy and 19 stolen ones.

Here is a link for Visual Studio where you can chat with a representative for volume licensing.




And here is a link for Oracle where you can chat with a rep.
