    I run a machine with XP and have 1 license for NOD32.
    I've created a new partition on one of my hard drives and have installed Windows 7 on it.
    Do I need a second license to run NOD32 on this partition?

    Tricky question, since it's basically two different computers in one I would say you would need two different licenses. But since you're testing windows 7 why not just install the v4 beta which is free.

    Cheers. I should have thought of that myself as I'm already running v4 beta on the XP partition :)

    An update on this which may be of use to others.

    I contacted ESETs' sales department about the above licence question. Their reply was as follows.

    "If you are dual booting then you only have one OS running at any one time so you only need one licence for Eset.
    The v4 software was released yesterday so you can download it using your normal Eset username and password."

    Unfortunately just after emailing them I'd noticed the link on their site to upgrade my existing licence to two licences and paid for the upgrade :(
