Hello, I recently bought windows 8.1 pro OEM from an online store. What I want to know I have install this OS on multiple computers?

Hello

No, you can not install it on the machine and then ONE more.

A license is for a SINGLE installation.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

And in OEM, you can't even transfer them to another machine so that it is on fails.

Read this retail and OEM Licenses:

If the laptop came with the preinstalled Windows operating system (Dell, HP, Acer, etc.), this product key supplied with the laptop is preinstalled OEM license and is not transferable.

OEM license/product key (systems of operating pre-installed on Dell, HP, etc.) is related to the first machine it is installed on and dies when dies of this machine.

The above applies also to OEM system builders licenses.

License of operating system in detail, that you buy and install yourself, are allowed to be transferred to another machine.

And retail licenses also can be installed on a machine at one time.

    At this miss-information? Was it a change for Win8?

    Yes, it's misinformation. It is not true for any version of Windows.
    With the exception of the pack family of Windows 7 (updated, not a full
    version) the rule is very clear: it is a copy (or a license) for
    each computer.

    There is nothing new here. This is exactly the same rule that has been in
    effect on all versions of Windows from at least with Windows 3.1.

  • Can I install windows 8 on 2 computers?

    I bought windows8 pro yesterday and installed it on my desktop pc. can I download it on my laptop, too?

    Not so much! You can only install Windows on a computer. A = e desktop license.  The only way that you can install Windows on a second computer must first uninstall it from the computer on which it is and then install it on another computer. Hope this helps and if you need another post to help and we will be happy to help you.

    For your information, Windows Movie Maker 2.6 is just a "water-down" version designed for computers cannot run the built-in Windows Movie maker 6.0

    Windows Movie maker 6.0 comes with Vista.
    2.6 MM Windows does not come with Vista. It is not a 'new' program. It is a compromise version.
    Excerpt from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=34
    Overview

    Movie Maker 2.6 is for Windows Vista users whose computer cannot run the Vista's Movie Maker version.

    To test whether your computer can run Vista's Movie Maker version:

    1. on the start menu, click all programs.
    2. click on Windows Movie Maker.

    If Movie Maker starts, you must not download version 2.6.

    If you get an error message that says: "Windows Movie Maker cannot start because your video card does not support the required level of hardware acceleration or hardware acceleration is not available", download and install Movie Maker 2.6.

    .............................................................................................................................................

    Windows Live Movie Maker is better, contrary to what you feel. Maybe, you're just not used to it?

    How can you install version 2.6? Go to the net.

    If you like Windows Movie Maker 6.0 so, here's a tutorial to install it in Windows 7 computers.

  • I am looking to buy the package of photography and I have 2 PC at home - can I install this on multiple devices?

    I am looking to buy the package of photography and I have 2 PC at home - can I install this on multiple devices?

    Yes, you can install all software from Adobe on 2 computers which are mainly used by the same person but not both computers at the same time.

    This allows you to install on your desktop for work from home / office and a laptop when away from your home/office. But you cannot use LR and PS on both computers at the same time.

    Creative desktop cloud applications can be downloaded and installed on multiple computers, regardless of the operating system. However, the activation is limited to two machines per individual related to the composition, and you may not use the software on these devices simultaneously.

  • Workstation HP Z240 Tower: can I install Windows 7 from scratch?

    Greetings!

    The operating system on my computer is actually win 10 Pro demoted to Win 7 Pro. I want to know if I can install from scratch Windows 7 in my computer using the Windows 7 disc with the computer.

    I was told, the operating system is Windows 10 but it uses an interface of Windows 7. I don't understand the need for this complication. If you can just install Windows 7, so why use an interface? Maybe this computer only works with Windows 10?

    What are you trying to do, as you say that you are already using Windows 7?

    I do not understand your question about "interface."

    The GUI (graphical user Interface) for Windows 10 incorporates most of the features of the GUI for Windows 7 and also of the GUI Windows 8/8.1.

    See: http://www8.hp.com/ca/en/products/workstations/product-detail.html?oid=8354563#! = form tab

    Your computer was preinstalled with:

    Windows 7 Professional 64 (available through 10 Pro 64 Windows downgrade rights)

    and also comes with a license and support for Windows 10 Pro software.

    My recommendation: given that Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 in January 2020 - a short period of absence - install Windows 10 to get security-updates for your computer now and after January 2020.

    Suggestion: if you have a "spare" disk drive, disconnect your current hard drive, connect the 'spare' and try to use this support for Windows 7 to install Windows.  That should answer your question about "can I install...". ».
