I have bought Windows XP Pro and have no problem with installing and 'activating it'into my #1 PC.
I now want to contact MS to see if I can load it into my #2 PC and at what cost.
Has anyong out there done this...surely yes...can you advise please?

Derek.

If second PC is a laptop you will have no probs, but if it's not then you will be asked to pay for a second license

XP as an operating system is, 1 O/S 1 PC. so you will need to buy another XP product key. "Office" programs can be used on 2 PC's 1 Desktop + 1 Laptop if they both belong to same person. j.
