    Is it legal to buy a single-user license NOD32 and install it into more than 1 OS of the same computer?

    Thanks.

    I think that the licence is per user and not per O/S

    Yes, it is legal. The license is per computer, not per OS. However, there are different versions (i.e. Linux/Windows) which would require a separate license.

    It is not possible!

    If you bought licence for Windows version of NOD32 you can download only Windows version of program/update. It will not patch you through to download other platform program/update... Just try it, you'll see.

    Cheers

    I was talking about multiple Windows platforms - for example, a dual boot between Win 2k and WinXP...so is it possible in that case?

    My EULA reading - the answer is yes, with the general case best articulated by rumpstah.

    The license is as follows:

    You are hereby granted an End User License to use NOD32 on: * 1
    computer(s) until 5 May 2006

    This is dependent upon the platform purchased. 3 boot partitions, same computer: 1 Linux, 1 Win98 and 1 WinXP would require 2 separate licenses. 1 for Windows and 1 for Linux.

    Thanks Rumpstah, that's as I understood it, and have sought clarification in the past, and been given the answer you have provided.

    Cheers :D

    Very true. If you have license for Windows you can download/update/mirror any of the Windows family. Sorry for the tiff. I've got misled by "... i.e. Windows/Linux ..." text in one of the posts...

    Cheers
