Hi , i had heard that you are allowed to install 2 copies with the same product key when you purchase windows XP Pro. What i want to know is if it is legal to use the same product key when installing at the office and for my home? or will MS tell you that one is illegal and no longer good for updates?

Any comments?

thanks,

JS

One licence for one computer so far as XP goes.
Therefore if you want XP on two machines, you need two licences.

In some versions of Office, the licence agreement allows you to install it on more than one computer, but this never has been the case with Windows itself.
