The retail Upgrade license lasts as long as the OS does, to be reinstalled as often as you wish wherever you want , since you have a retail XP copy that qualifies for it - correct?

Yep - and it can be transferred to another qualifying machine if this one dies

This can only 'work' if the installation is enabled by a hacker's Activation Exploit.
Noel anything you post is worth a lot.

Mmm, is that, a touch of pessimism.


Already I am missing the "taskbar always on top" option in xp.

Thank you guys for your help and encouragement. Off now to the windows 8 forum to see if there is a another way to keep the bar on top.

If you want the Windows 7 desktop environment, then the link gregrocker posted earlier about adding the Windows 7 start menu to Windows 8 is a good way to go. I use it myself and it has worked very well. You also have the option to switch between the Windows 7 desktop and the Windows 8 start screen, simply by logging on and off without the need for a reboot.

Yes but it's now been traded up for a 8 pro licence.
