Alot of companies sell O.E.M. software. Just make sure you buy from someone you have a purchase history from such as Newegg.com
Also note: that some oem software comes in non-retail boxes but in white paper sleeves. That's why the prices are lower then if it were in a retail box in some cases. Good luck!

Ya, That;s what I was expecting as far as packaging. I am fine with that but I am trying to see if anyone knows how reliable www.oemsoftstore.com is?

With coments like this, it makes me wonder.

3. What does OEM stand for? What is the difference between OEM and full retail packaging?


OEM - Original Equipment Manufacturer. A retail version comes in a fancy box, OEM does not. A retail version contains a printed manual. The customers who purchase a retail version are eligible for tech support and different rebates. With our offer this is not possible - hence cheap prices.


Be aware that you will not be able to register the software with the manufacturer. Some of these products cannot be updated on-line.

Look at the FAQ section of the site, its install questions are tutorials on useing cracked software.

QuarkExpress and Autoupdate are the big giveaways.

If you want OEM software, buy from a well-known retailer such as Newegg or TigerDirect. I've also ordered from a place called Atomic Park, and they're very good.

Wow Visual Studio .NET 2003 Enterprise Architect is only $190? That's like $3500.00/license retail/non-OEM.

Yowza.
