License Key Help


I recently purchased Windows 7 Ultimate and installed it on my desktop pc and my laptop..

But now it is saying that windows cannot be activated on my laptop. Is it possible that the key was only available for one pc?

If so, what are my options?


PS- If I need to buy a new license, where can i buy one, I dont want the whole software package, only the license!

Hello, and firstly, welcome to the Windows 7 Forums! :)

Yes, unfortunately, you can only use the key on ONE PC at a time.
If you need more keys, you could consider buying another one online (should be able to do so from the activation window)
Or purchase the Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack, which has 3 product keys (or one you can use up to three times simultaneously, not sure).
