I have purchased the retail version of XP home. I would like to purchase an
additional license to be able to use this same version on another PC I have.
When I go to the indicated website to purchase the additional license, it
informs me that no product keys/id are available for purchase - try again.

Any idea how long that will take?? Are we talking days, weeks, or months?

Thanks,

It would be cheaper to go down to Walmart's and buy an OEM version.

Although you can buy extra licenses (see
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/howtobuy/addlic.asp>),
it's not generally a good deal. The problem is that Microsoft
sells additional licenses at only a small savings over the list
price. You're almost certainly better off just buying a complete
second copy from a discount source.

Someone in another thread mentioned that it is only $84 to get the second
license from MS. Walmart is selling OEM CDs for $120. $200 with SP2.

That's just like my opinion, Man........
