Two installs on one PC

Post by cichy45 »

Hello, I have a question that I believe was not asked yet...

So, if I recall correctly, PrimoCache licence/key is "attached" to your motherboard ID so you can not use it on two PCs at the same time.

BUT what if I have one PC with two Windows installs. Will I be able to use one PrimoCache key on two OSes at the same time on one PC? Will this consume your activation limit (I think support said you can transfer one licence up to 5 times between different PCs)?

I've done this before without issue during testing. Not sure if it goes between Win7 and Win10, but I know that two side-by-side Win10 installations both handled the license just fine.

I've also had to "refresh" my license by emailing their support before, and they are very nice to work with :) I built a new PC and due to reinstalling Windows a couple of times before I was out of activations. I explained the situation and they happily reset my license.

@cichy45, yes, you can use one key for multiple Windows OSes on one PC.
