    AFAIK: NO!

    Why you couldn't connect with PC No. 2 to the Net? There many way to do just that! Maybe you could explain a bit more precise?

    Certain apps (don't ask which, I don't know) are licensed for use on up to 5 PC's. On the new PC open up store, browse to the apps that you own, click on buy. After being prompted for your microsoft password the button should change to say install.

    Thanks for the help guy but it just seem that my old pc can't run windows 8 :( i tried to install it but it failed as my CPU doesn't supports SSE2 and other stuff, it just gets stuck on windows boot screen :(

    its a old AMD 2600+ 1.91Ghz with 2GB DDR1 RAM and 128mb nvidia 5200 AGP card on ASUS A7V400 MX, i though it would run win8 fine as it can run win7 fine :( but no luck
