    Hi,

     

                I am a solution provider building POS machine for my customers.  The POS machine is PC-based.  If I purchase Windows XP Home OEM license for this POS machine.  Any licensing problem if I sell the machine to my customers?  Will it invalidate the OEM license?  If it is the case, what s the proper handling?

     

    Regards,

    Kim

    This is not a question for this forum - there are no licensing experts here.
    That said - I can see no problems with this scenario, so long as the COA sticker is properly attached to the case of the machines in question, and one license per machine is used (and always assuming that the POS software will run in Home - many such software packages require Professional Licenses due to using Domain-based network access).
     
    You should repost this in a proper Licensing forum - or through the MS Partner scheme to which you probably belong.
