Vista back to XP RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    Hi, I have a need to revert back to XP Pro for training purposes, working on 2003 MCSE, and I need to completely rebuild my system to do so. I want to re-use my WLOC subscription on the same computer but am concerned that it will see the XP system as a seperate system and use up on of the WLOC licenses leaving the Vista one out there un-used. How do I avoid this or update the subscription such that I am still using only one of my three WLOC licenses?

     

    Thanks in advance for any help anyone can offer.

  • Since OneCare will be uninstalled from the PC before your load XP, you can simply activate again. The license allows OneCare to be active on 3 PCs concurrently. You are, in effect, performing a reinstall or transfer of license. As long as you don't do that excessively (two dozen times or so) you will be fine.
