windows 10 and VM Licensing question RRS feed

  • Question

  • My client has a number of Dell computers that all came with Windows 10 Pro.  We would now like to spool up a virtual machine for testing on the physical comptuter's Hyper-V submodule.

    Q1: Are we allowed to do that with the Windows 10 Pro that came with the Dell computer

    Q2: To muddle the waters a bit further, we actually need to test software that needs to run on Windows 7.  So can we install a Windows 7 VM on our Dell Windows 10 machines, with the license we already have.

    Q3: If either or both answers above are NO, then what do we need to get for each developer so we can legitimately run a Windows 7 VM on our Windows 10 Dell machines
