    Got the Visa Ultimate retail and gonna install it on my existing (aging) P4
    system with 1 gig RAM. However, in a few months I will want to move the
    Vista license onto my new build PC - a Intel Quad core. How do I move the
    software license from the old to the new machine ? If I activate whilst its
    still on my old machine then the activation server will not allow the
    activation on the new machine .... ????? If I uninstall from the old
    machine, does some tool go to the activation server and say that the
    software has been removed and is avilable to be legally installed elsewhere?

    How does this work please?

    Thanks, Steve

    You are only wasting your time and Vista license doing this. Wait untill
    your new computer is ready. Vista isn't that good that it is a "must have"
    OS. The closer you are to the release of Vista SP1 the better off you will
    be. Patience grasshopper.
