Software for academic institutions, faculty, and students.

Any academic staff and student of the faculty are entitled to membership in the Microsoft Academic Alliance

and VMware programs provide access to the latest developer tools, servers, and platforms.

The software tools and technologies provided by the program are restricted to instructional and non-commercial research use only.

After registration to either MSDN or VMWARE, obtaining the software through the server is simple – just choose the software you want, and download it.


Download Process

The software comes packaged in large, single files with .ISO or .IMG extensions.

These files are “images of the CD or DVD media.

You may have experienced downloading failure from the server with no way to resume it, if your connection timed out or if you ran out of disk space during a large download.

To address this issue, use the File Transfer Manager tool to steadily deliver the software to your computer. In the event that your connection to the server is reset, the progress you

made on the download will not be lost.

File Transfer Manager (FTM)

If you are using Internet Explorer, you will be able to install this tool as an ActiveX control on the way to downloading the software.

If you are using a browser other than Internet Explorer (including Netscape, Firefox, Opera, and others) you will need to manually install the File Transfer Manager tool.

1. Navigate to the following URL:

2. Click the Install link at the top. This link takes you here:

3. Follow the link that reads “Click here to download MSI.” When promoted to run or save, choose Run.4. Run the MSI to install FTM. You may need to restart your browser after installation is complete.

After FTM is installed, you can download software from your ELMS portal.

Product keys

After ordering a package, an email confirms the order with the product key will be send automatically.

In MSDN the key is kept in the “My software” when you press “download” on the required software.
