    Vista Family special ?

    I would like to purchase two additional copies of Vista using the Familt
    special deal.

    How long do I have to use the two downloaded licenses?
    Can I wait (1 year ?) with one of then (until I upgrade the 3rd computer)
    before I activate it.

    So... If I purchase the license(s) now, do I need to use then now or can I
    wait until latter to use them?


    Thanks,
    John

    There is a time limit on the purchase but on on the use of the license after
    the purchase. So yes you can wait a year before using one or the other.
