Hi, i'm new here and i tried the search, im just not sure exactly what it is i am to be searching for...
i am having 2 new computers built, and the store is installing windows xp home edtn (oem). they said that i needed to buy 2 copies of windows (one for each tower). is this true? you cant use one copy and load it onto both?
also, office. i have a copy of 2003 and i was wondering if i could load this onto both of my comps, or do i need to buy 2 copies of this as well. sorry cuz i am noob.
Both windows and office are one computer per license. So you will need two licenses for 2 computers. You can not legally install the same copy on two computers.
Now if you have a volume license you can install the same copy upto the number of licenses you have. But you still need to buy a license for each computer.
