  1. 2.     What is the Partner Support Community?

The Partner Support Community is an online support forum that is accessible to all Microsoft partners with an active membership.  In this community you can post questions and also see questions and answers from other partners.  The community is accessible 24/7 and available in 11 languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Italian, Russian, Korean, simplified Chinese, traditional Chinese and Japanese).
