You may have trouble activating XP - or maybe you will get away with it. Strictly, one CD for each machine.

Yes, legally you need to remove the copy from your wife's PC.

cheers thankyou all ,,i cant insatll it for some rea son i have the key and cd and it goes through the motions and gets to the copying files bit and then comes up with the ,retry ,skip file ,or exit options because for some reason has trouble with copying files ,and taking xp off the other machine hasnt helped it still means it wont copy it so now i have no xp on anything any ideas ?

hi AaNnDdYy.....
you might need to try a lens cleaner.....and check the disk is not dirty or scratched..
otherwise just keep pressing retry till it gets through copying files...hope this helps.Dave.
