I'm trying to track down a lot of inexpensive Windows 7 Pro licenses for my little shop. Suggestions?

AFAIK...Microsoft has never authorized selling of licenses only for Win 7.  To get a license, one must purchase a Genuine Windows install disk...or execute a legal download from an authorized site which provides both software and license.


Over ten years ago, the selling of licenses sans installation media...was possible for Win 9X and XP...but MS put a stop to such in 2005-2006.

I'm guessing that you are installing Windows 7 Pro from a retail copy on multiple computers?


If this is the case you need to look into purchasing a Window 7 Pro volume license.  The only other option is to purchase individual retail copies of the operating system.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
