Windows 7: Installing on more than one machine

Installing on more than one machine

Hi All,

A quick search didn't provide the answer to this, but I'm curious if Windows 7 beta copies can be installed on more than one computer, or are they only good for a single machine?

Thanks,
Greg

Yes up to 3 unless they changed it with a single key.

There was only about 10-15 keys given out for the CPP testers which means they're universal.
So if however many thousand people are using the same key i doubt your extra few machines will matter
