  • Hi edelmys,

    If you purchased your software via Windows Marketplace, you should be able to find the answer in their Help and FAQ section: http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/content.aspx?ctId=374&tabid=1


    My supposition is that if you uninstall the software from your existing system, then re-install on your new system you will be legal. You may need to phone activate, since you are installing on different hardware - the activation wizard will walk you through that, though.


    Best regards,
