I recently bought Windows 7 Pro to upgrade from Win XP Pro.
In one of the sub windows it had a nitification that I needed to register the OS with Microsoft. I bought from TigerDirect. 1st I saw it was 2 days, then 1...So I decided to register.
The wierd thing was, there was a completely different number that was listed. When I registered, it dawned on me to change the number to the one I bought, because it took the defaulted number without any problems. When I attempted to perform that task, the prompt kicked back & said something to the effect that it was an erronious number?
My question is, will there be a trap in the future that will red flag my system? In that there will be no updates for my computer or that functions will mysteriously quit because my computer won't be accepted for support from Microsoft?
It might sound stupid. I always follow the correct path for these things. I don't purchase knock off programs or OS disks. I just want to go through the proper protocol & channels.
If this license issue comes back to bite me in the ass or if there is that possibility, then I would rather deal with it now. Please post links, experince with this sort of issue, or pass on to me that I have nothing to worry about.
Thanks for the read of this; bit winded message.
