    Quick Activation question


    As a member of Dreamspark Premium, how many times can I activate Windows with the key that is generated for me at checkout? I mean, if I decide to re install soon, would I lose my key? how many re installs can I perform?

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure that DreamSpark works just like MSDN and Technet. As far as I know, there isn't a hard limit on activations. I think it really comes down to a certain # over a certain # of days. I've never had trouble activating my MSDN keys just a day apart on different machines. You should be able to reactivate that Dreamspark Key as often as you would like to.
