    Hi there,

    I purchased the ESET NOD32 Antivirus software last year for my home PC (Windows XP OS). I have been quite happy with it so far, most times I don't even know that it is running. Recently I bought a new laptop computer for travel purposes and thought I'd be able to download and install a copy of my Antivirus software on it. However, the information in your knowledge base seems to imply that I would have to buy a separate license for it? I guess I'd just like a little more clarification on how your product licensing works.

    Thanks.

    If you are within a short period (0-60 days) or purchase, or renewl - you might be able to contact ESET or a local reseller to add a license to your existing license - the benefit of doing it this way is that you have a single username/password for your 2 computers - and you have a single expiration date.

    The 2-user pack (if available in your area) - is also a much better deal then 2 separate single-user licenses.

    Well, considering it's been a year since the original purchase that probably isn't a viable option.

    A follow up question, though. Say I had been able to add the extra license. My laptop runs with Windows 7 as my operating system, while the PC runs XP. Would the 2-user license allow me to install the Antivirus for both computers?

    was it a 2 year license then?

    The windows license is good for all version and mixing and matching of the same. I have users who have 4 licenses on 4 different versions of windows - it's their choice entirely (although I would encourage anyone to kill off their Vista boxes ASAP - that's a personal choice thing ;) )

    Actually it was 3 years, so still got 2 years left on the current license.

    ok - then buy a 2 year single user and combine them in 2 years... that would be your best but I reckon.
