wow who's typing for Madison?


Yeah, I sounded kinda geeky huh? :-P


Yea that was weird...Do you work for microsoft?


HA! :-b

If I did, Vista would have been a whole lot better when it came out.

So that would be a definite "NO!".

Plus, where would I get that kind of time 8-o ? 10+ hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year keeping the Cafe going. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.

If you want to make sure it will operate on your computer properly there is nothing wrong with installing it and checking it out. Just don't activate it (leave that for your Mom's) and you have 30? days before activations is required.

Yep, 30 days. If you click "activate" and you don't have the license for multiple installs, that would be bad, so don't click that bubble when it comes up unless it's a MSDN copy or you have an Enterprise license key.

How do I know if its a MSDN or Enterprise copy? It came in a normal looking box like you see at the retail stores. The Office came in a small plastic sleeve.

Could I register it on my mom's computer then say in a week or so say I had to reformat my computer and call Microsoft and ask them for a new key. I know this worked with XP.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Your mom should know. They'd have said something if it was a developer's copy or if she could put it on multiple machines.

You could try what you're suggesting, but I wouldn't do it. Microsoft is trying to cut down on that sort of thing, so it's very possible they cancel the old key when you ask for a new one, which would obviously be bad if your mom's copy quit updating or whatever.

Rumor has it that you can find MSDN keys online sometimes if you search in the right places........not that I'd suggest doing something like that of course...... O:-)
