Time to say "bye-bye" to Microsoft and their idiosyncracies. This is a free world. If i "buy" a copy of any software I have to right to do anything with it by installing the software in my own PCs or notebooks, It does not matter what the "software agreement" says. Whatever [censored] is printed on the packaging is null and void because it is completely one-sided In the commercial world, any contract has to be expressly agreed upon by both or all parties to the contract and signed with witnesses before the contract is considered legal and binding. In the software cobntracts there is no such agreement between the publisher and the buyer before the contract is printed so it is not binding in any way.
