2 computers. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We recently bought a new computer and decided to keep our old one as more of a family computer. We have purchased a legitimate copy of windows XP home edition SP2 and activated it on the old computer. Is there any chance that we can use the same product key to activate the new computer's copy of windows XP? Or do we have to go out and buy a new copy of Windows XP?

    Sorry if there is already a post like this. I was not able to find anything relevant. And sorry if this is not the right place to post this.

    Josh Smith.

  • You can only use one Windows XP license on one computer.  You'll need to purchase a new license for the second computer.
