Microsoft offers several ways for licensing, depending on whether you are buying a new computer, legalizing old one, you want to benefit from volume licensing program or you want to sign a contract with Microsoft.
GGK (Get Genuine Kit) helps users to install Windows OS on an existing computer that has no pre-installed operating system or for which they do not have a legal operating system.
OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is a software that comes pre-installed on a new computer and is intended solely for the purchase of the new computers. OEM license is linked to the computer on which is installed and it can not be transferred to another computer.
FPP (Full Packaged Product) refers to a box with product that can be purchased separately from the computer.
OLP (Open License Program) is a program to which all users who purchase a minimum of 5 of any kind and in any combination licenses can subscribe. By purchasing licenses, customer signs a contract with Microsoft. Over a period of two years it is possible to complete the purchase of additional user licenses at the same level of prices at which the agreement was signed and the first order was submitted. Licenses remain in permanent property of the customer. The program allows the user to check the status of their orders over the internet and download their software and licenses.
OVS (Open Value Subscription) is a corporate contract and it implies the inclusion of all the computers in your company, except for computers that are not running Microsoft programs (accounting, etc.). The contract is signed for 3 years, and payment is made on an annual basis. After the expiration of a period of 3 years, the customer renews the contract for the next period or purchases licenses.
During the contract period the user can use the latest version of the software for which he has subscription. Total number of computers can be changed (minimum is 5 computers), and customer’s obligation is to report the number of available computers prior to payment of the annual installment.
A prerequisite for the OVS is that you already have a legal Pro operating system on all of your computers.
