GeneralVisual Studio with MSDN Premium PinmemberJoel Palmer5-Feb-14 8:41 
Has any looked at the MSDN pricing lately?
 
I do some MS Office (excel) integration for my customers so it requires that I get their version of MS Office (all the versions; 97 to 2013) to program against. To have access to Office I need to upgrade from the MSDN Pro to MSDN Premium... which costs $5000 more!
 
Can anyone explain to me how they can justify charging developers $5000 to integrate with their products? I'm not writing the president's speeches using these installs. I'm writing software so my customers will continue to use MS products and purchase licenses.
 
Cry | :(( I don't understand. What am I missing... besides the money to do it? Cry | :((
