Windows 7
Can I use the same key code on 2 different computers?

I have a desktop and a laptop and I already did a clean install on my laptop. Can I use the same code for a clean install on the desktop?

Not unless you remove it from the laptop first.

A retail version can migrate to any computer of your choice, but only one at a time.
