Pro/Core is bigger size file than Pro VL.
Pro VL install.wim -> 1 index
Pro/Core install.wim -> 2 indices
Pro/Core Designed For Single Installation For Home Users & Activates With Retail Key
Pro VL Designed For Large Scale Installation For Organisations & Activates With MAK Or KMS Keys.
Because Pro/Core Contain Two Version in Single ISO (Windows Pro & Windows Core) Not in List But Windows Pro+WMC Also
Pro VL Contain Only One Version (Windows Pro)
In addition to that. As said Pro VL is only for Corporare Environment, you can't add WMC as a add-on on ProVL. But it is Possible in Retail Pro
This I discovered yesterday. Was hoping to be able to add WMC after I activated it with my OEM key. No dice, the "anytime upgrade" function does not exist at all if you install from the VL media.
In the opposite direction, if you install from the non-VL media, then activate with a VL key, the "anytime upgrade" function is still there but gives an error message if you try to do it.
If you use your computer for home use, the core edition is the best for you, you don't need the features of pro
...unless you have more than 16gb of ram
...unless your home network includes a Windows Server domain
...unless you want to connect to your computer from another computer using Remote Desktop
