install on a second computer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I cannot active my store bought copy on a second computer.  i used my wifes hotmail on the first install then tried to use my live.com on the second. it wont let me activate the product. The cover says I can install this on three different computers.  WTF.  if i have to use my wifes email accoutnfor everything I'd be VERY dissapointed with this product and will never recommed its use to anyone.  I guess microsofts greed superceeds ease of use.  I'm swithching to apple, no wonder their stock is doing so well.

  • I'm sorry to disappoint you, but when you activated the subscription on your wife's PC with her email address, that created the account. You must use this LiveID to activate on the other 2 PCs and to manage the subscription.
