mdc, thanks for the post Now if I pay for that $14.99 key, can I use it on a fresh install of windows 8 pro, or is that only for upgrade from windows 7? Also once obtaining that key, can I use it on another computer or is it only for one computer? And would there be a way to make it so that way my laptop and desktop can use it? edit.. i accidentally hit new thread.. mod/admin can you please delete this! Thanks.
