    License Processing and Delivery

    These licenses are discounted for 501(c)3 charity organizations. Churches and non-profits must submit their 501(c)3 documentation to verify non-profit status before the order can be processed.

    Microsoft licenses are custom created for your organization by Microsoft; they are not generated by Tech Crawl, so order fulfillment is not immediate. Please allow 2-5 business days for delivery. After your order is processed, Microsoft will send you an e-mail with instructions on how you can find your serial key and access your product download via the Microsoft Volume Licensing Services Center. Please note you may be required to burn the program to a CD before you can install it**. No media is currently available from our website, but you can purchase it directly from Microsoft after your order has been fulfilled.

    You'll receive one (1) installation per license. This is a fully-featured license from Microsoft; there are no differences between this product and the commercially priced version.
