How to Tell Which Subscription Is Assigned To Which PC RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have two (2) subscriptions for Windows Live OneCare under my user name of xxxxx@hotmail.com. I have six (6) PC's using the service. Can anyone tell me how to tell which PC is attached to which service?

    On the billing page I see "Windows Live OneCare Beta, Enabled and Windows Live OneCare, Enabled. Which PC is assigned to the Beta and which to the other? Is there a serial number or key number assigned to each installation that is associated with the subscription? I know that the user name is assigned but if you have several subscriptions how do you monitor and control each PC without know where and how they are assigned?

  • Open OneCare

    Click Help/About.

    The subscription ID listed would be the LiveID for the assigned subscription.

    Note that there is no active beta with Activation currently unless you are in the Perpetual Beta, in which case you should be a participant in the private newsgroup. I suspect that your beta subscription listed in your Billing account is from 2.0 and, even though it says "enabled" it is actually "dead." That would mean that you are running 6 PCs on the same subscription - 3 more than allowed by license.
