FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
What is the MSDNAA program?
The MSDN Academic Alliance is a program offering annual memberships for academic departments to make it easier and less expensive for you to obtain Microsoft developer tools, platforms and servers for instructional and research purposes and to build a community of instructors who can share curriculum and other learning resources to support the use of these technologies.
Who can use MSDNAA?
Access to the MSDNAA program is available to all Fisher students currently enrolled in a Fisher College of Business course, as well as all Fisher employees performing research and instructional activities for the college.
Will the software work on a Mac?
At this time, all software available from MSDNAA only runs on PC computers running Windows. However, most of the software is compatible with Intel-based Macs running Windows in a virtualized environment, such as Parallels Desktop, which can be purchased at the WiredOut store.
What about Microsoft Office?
This program does not cover the basic Microsoft Office applications (i.e., Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook). You can get this software at a discounted price through the university at UniPrint.
