  2. No, Windows XP Professional x64 is not for free, there was an Upgrade
    Advantage for persons who purchased a 64 bit computer within a specific
    period, but that ended on July 31st, 2005. You have to purchase the Full OEM
    Version from one of the following vendors with qualifying hardware:

    I suggest you check out Charlie Russels recent Web cast to find out if
    Windows XP Professional x64 meets your needs:

    It is not a bed of roses for many.

  3. Are you running a 32-bit machine or 64-bit?

    Or.. You can just pretend your a business, become a microsoft partner and
    subscribe to the MAPS (about $299/year) and you get the x64 edition of
    windows (10 licenses, though darn if I didn't lose my stickers with the
    keys) , along with all the other operating systems, servers, and office
    software...

    Well, if he was running Winxp home, chances are, yes, he's either running a
    32-bit or 64-bit machine, I would have to agree.

  7. Well, he confirmed today he is running the following specs:
    Does that make my PC to work better or, becouse i have this Computer
    AMD Athlon 64 +3200, 2,21GHz 1,25 GiB ram.

    Bruce and I gave Wizzow some recommendations on preparing for it, such as
    making sure peripheral devices, applications are compatible with XP Pro x64.
    Wizzow also plans on doing a dual boot install. Forget, Wizzow said he/she
    will hold out for now.

  8. But heres the catch, if you discontinue from the program, your licenses
    become invalid and cannot be activated.

    That used to be true, I don't think it's true anymore -- but that's OK, i
    don't plan on discontinuuing.

    Besides, if the software's installed and you don't have a public computer,
    without breaking privacy laws there's like no way you can have the broken
    licenses mean anything.
