Buy Visual Studio and MSDN online in New Zealand

Great news for folks living in New Zealand – today we launched the New Zealand Visual Studio Store at

Now New Zealand developers and companies can purchase Visual Studio licenses and MSDN subscriptions completely online and in New Zealand dollars. This is a big step forward over the existing approach to purchasing Microsoft software for developers in New Zealand. You can also buy Mindscape products there in NZ dollars and we plan to offer further Microsoft and third-party products over time.

Get Visual Studio and MSDN online in New Zealand

What’s available in the store?

We’ve started the store with VS 2008 / MSDN options (1 year, 3 year subscriptions) and the entire Mindscape catalogue. We’ll be growing the lineup over time so if there is a product you’d like to get your hands on that is not listed then please let us know – we’ll help make it happen.

One thing we’ve tried to do is to make it easy for you to identify the editions of products that make the most sense to you – no more needing tensor calculus to work out what licenses you need! We’ve also tried to make pricing a little simpler by pricing everything in New Zealand dollars.

However, if you know you need a licensing option that’s not listed, or you’re not sure what products you need, just get in touch, we’re happy to help.

I’m not a New Zealander!

Just ignore this post! Our main outlet for Mindscape products continues to be our own online store: there’s no change there!

For Visual Studio and MSDN licences, you’ll need to contact a local retailer just as you do at the moment. Due to how Microsoft licensing is divided up amongst countries and regions, we’re not able to sell Microsoft products to customers outside New Zealand.

Additional services

Through the Visual Studio Store we are also providing service options to help development teams in New Zealand. The initial offerings include helping larger organisations ascertain what their licensing requirements are as well as more technical workshops on getting the most from your software infrastructure. As with everything, we’re open to feedback on any support and service options you would like to see.

Go and check it out and let us know what you think!
