SharePoint licensing is almost a black art. You can get an idea of the list prices but things vary depending on how many people, who you buy it from, and how it is licensed.

You will need licenses for the development environments as well. Microsoft offers MSDN subscription (Premium includes also SharePoint) for this purpose, and while the subscription is not free, it is considerably cheaper than actual production licenses of Windows Server and SharePoint Enterprise. If you are a startup, see if BizSpark would suit for you. ...

If you decide to go with SharePoint and your site does not need to access other applications/data on your network, then I would suggest going with a hosted solution. There are multiple companies that provide SharePoint hosting. One that I've used a few times is FPWEB. They have a free trial available so it would be worth taking SharePoint for a spin to ...

You do not need to purchase CALs for trial software, but you are not supposed to be using it in a production environment I don't believe. Is the 2007 trial software still available and functional? Seems a little late to be trying the previous version, if you are thinking about implementing anything now I would start by looking at 2010.


2

Unfortunately, you can't extend the trial and therefore you need to re-install everything if you plan to continue using trial. You can only change the Key if you are upgrading from standard to enterprise. Read more: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc263204.aspx

Unfortunately I have heard Wictor's and moontear's explanations, both from Microsoft on the same project! It depends on who you talk to. Call Microsoft and ask, if you don't like the answer, call back, you'll probably get a different rep, so keep calling back until you get the answer you want, then go with that. ;) I don't think they fully understand their ...

I don't think you need extra SharePoint licence for database server. Topology and Licensing Example of a Medium SharePoint 2010 Server Farm So if this link is relevant you need SP licences only for Front-Ends and Application Servers (IMO this makes sense).

From a pure perspective there is not much required to develop for SharePoint. You don't even need Visual Studio, but can develop using any tool set as long as you can compile .net assemblies, edit xml and package .cab files. BUT to be efficient you need: Visual Studio SharePoint Tools which are only in Professional and up A machine (can be virtual) ...

You should definitively grap a msdn / technet licence for your development environments (it will pay in the long run). In the meantime, you can backup any relevant web application / site collection / custom development / configuration and then reinstall from scratch the VM and redeploy your backup on it afterward. Kindly.

See the post history for my previous version of this answer, it's actually wrong. SSRS 2012 as a service application is the equivalent of the Add-In in 2010. You can probably install and license in exactly the same way as before, but you install the SErvice Application where you previously installed the Add-In.

As long as the server is running Enterprise, you'll have no 'conflict'. UserLicensingEnabled = false just means that you have not enabled the licensing separation -- in other words, all users must have a Standard + Enterprise CAL for this particular farm (versus enabling user licensing and assigning them to a Standard-only license). MSDN only has ...

Shkipper, First you need to understand what is CAL: CAL means Client Access License... and it doesn't need to be equivalent to the number of users in your company, lets say you have 20 employees in your company but only 5 of them connect concurrently on SharePoint then you need only 5 CAL's not 20! About verifying these CAL's... There is no such limitation ...

Use a virtual machine if you can. With a VM, you can roll back to a pristine state at any time should you mess things up(and you will). You can also add an AD domain and as many users as you will need to test different security scenarios(security considerations are a big deal in SharePoint development). Also with a VM you can create snapshots for testing ...

If you are running Windows 7 x64 (Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate) then you can run SharePoint on it directly if you like. This means you make the most use of your available RAM. However, it does have downsides in that you cant take advantage of things like snapshots that you would get with a virtualization technology like Hyper-V or VMWare. An easy ...

@Bas is correct, you need to work with a specialist to ensure participate with the correct program and are licensed correctly. I covered a similar question here: What is the price of Sharepoint 2010 Enterprise Edition, with the 5 user cals

The best thing I've seen for license enforcement has always been the key pair, as with Microsoft. Send in Serial Number, get a key and you're good. This way only half the validation is discoverable. The trick with SharePoint would be storage of the second key, you have few options with SharePoint that are easy to use and you could get access to ...

For SQL Server, you can get a SQL Server developer license (which includes the server license and a CAL) for about $35 per developer (i.e., dirt cheap). The SQL Server developer edition includes all features that appear in the enterprise version.
