How To BenefitFrom
Free MSDN Subscription
Microsoft Partner Network (MPN)
Microsoft Partner Network
• The Microsft world an ever growing community.
• Many of the Organizations and Individuals are Microsoft
Partners for different technologies and services.
• Microsoft offers great benefits via Microsoft Partner
• If you are a MPN member, you get free access to MSDN
MSDN + MPN
• MSDN Subscription allows you to access all latest
software from Microsoft for free
• You can also get great discounts on MS Azure
membership via MSDN Subscription
• How to associate MSDN Subscription with MPN
• Login to MPN website. From the homepage, choose
• Click on Manage my membership. You will be taken to the
Manage my membership page. From here, click Partner
Membership Center hyperlink.
• Look for Requirements and Assets menu option and
choose Assign Privileges
• Go to MSDN Subscriptions tab
• Now if you are a “Primary Contact” person for that MPN
account or a person having adequate privileges to
manage the MPN account, you will see a table/listing of
all those employees/persons associated with this
particular MPN account.
• Locate the particular person to which you want to assign
• There should be a check box at the extreme right which
you have to check. This will result in generating a
Technical ID for that particular person. The technical ID
will get displayed against the person’s name in one of the
columns on the listing of persons.
• Now, the person who has been assigned MSDN subscription should
go to msdn.microsoft.com and log in with his/her Live ID/hotmail id.
Once you log into msdn.microsoft.com, you will either see this menu:
• Or choose this menu option:
• You can choose the “Register a subscription” option or go
to My Account and add another subscription (which you
have just got from MPN network).
In either case, you should get following screen:
• Add your first name, last name and the Live ID or hotmail Id email
address. In Subscriber ID field, add the Technical ID that you were
provided in the MPN network.
• Important: Once you click Next, it is quite likely that you get an error.
Because it takes some time for the Technical ID to get reflected in
Microsoft’s systems. In my case, it took a few hours.
• Once this is done, you can go to Azure website using the same Live
ID/hotmail ID and Voila !! you will find yourself presented with the
great MSDN Subscription !! (In my case, it was MSDN Premium).
• So enjoy the great benefits of MSDN Subscription to develop great
technical skills for yourself and your Organization !!
All the best !
