XP Pro Retail Licence Issue! RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Retail version of XP Pro installed on my system, and would like to install the same disc on to my Son's self built PC, when trying to validate the PC microsoft says i must buy another licence. I was told when i brought this i could use it on other PC's? can someone clear this issue up and point me in the right direction if i do need another licence, and how much would this cost!

    Many Thanks In Advance!

  • One (1) Windows XP license allows just one (1) installation on just one (1) PC.  Whoever told you that you can use the same license on a second PC was incorrect with their advice.
