    MSDNAA Windows 7 License Question

    I know this is probably an odd place to ask this, but I know many of you have downloaded Windows 7 through MSDNAA.

    I couldn't really find a license file anywhere and was wondering how many computers the serial can be used for. It may of told me at the beginning before I actually downloaded it but I was too excited and was clicking too fast.

    Some friend of mine said he thought it was 8 but he wasn't sure where he read that.

    Does anyone here have any idea? Thanks

    One serial = one computer. When you download it, you get a serial.
    If you want to install on additional computers, you will need to request a new serial from your MSDNAA admin.

    It's 3.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    Oh? I doubt this. Where is your source of information?

    Not in the agreement from my MSDNAA.

    I suppose different schools might have different contracts with Microsoft. I think I'll just send the program administrator an email.

    In terms of where to find the actual serial:

    It should either be on the product download page or automatically entered in for you during installation. That's how it has been for me in my experience with MSDNAA.
