If one upgrades from a volume liscence copy of XP does that render the volume liscence useless?

  1. No. The Win 7 install kit just looks to see if the previous version is installed, it doesn't validate or care what the previous version's license is.
  2. What I mean is will the old liscence still function, I am under the impression that when you upgrade it makes the old liscence useless, is that true?
  3. Best answer
    In actuality, the old version doesn't even have to be activated - so I can't imagine that the status of the old license is affected in any way.
  4. Thanks!
