How many users can I add in Windows XP Home Edition? Is there any way of
creating 25 users accounts. Only 1 user will be logged into the machine at
a time. This will not be violating the license....

More about : users home

Create your users.

The information is provided "as is", it is suggested you research for
yourself before you take any advice - you are the one ultimately
responsible for your actions/problems/solutions. Know what you are
getting into before you jump in with both feet.

Just as many as your HDD storage will accomodate.

I don't mean to be overly cute, but I keep thinking "how many users does it
take to change a lightbulb?" when I read the subject line. Sorry about that
:)

Not exclusively a hardware problem. It also depends on whether the user
group has permissions for changing light bulbs.

And whether the bulb has been shared.

It takes 9 Microsoft Employees to change a light bulb.

1 to answer the phone and transfer the call to India.
1 to tell you to reinstall your light bulb wiring
1 to ask you if your light bulb was activated
1 to tell you your light bulb is "Does Not Have The Right Product ID"
1 to ask you if you changed any hardware in your light bulb socket lately
1 to put you on hold for 25 minutes
1 to hang up on you so you will have to call back and get another "tech"
1 to tell you that the light bulb must have been damaged by 3rd party
software

1 to tell you that the light bulb is "OEM" and Microsoft won't support "OEM"
light bulbs !
