Vista Home Basic RRS feed

  • Question

  • It says my version of Vista is not Genuine. I purchased this from CPC in Preston UK . I am A Radio Ham & use this on Four Computers One For HF one for UHF & VHF for sending Pictures & data programs. Why has it taken me off on two machines. Do I have to purchase further copies of Vista,which does not seem fair,has I live on my own & only use one computer at a time. This my hobby in retirement I am 74 years. Please reply via my e-mail.

  • Hi John,


    Each computer does require a seperate license of Windows Vista to be installed. Installing the same copy on multiple computers is a violation of the software license. You will need to purchase additional licensed copies of Vista for each computer.
