    Windows 10 OEM systems have the product key embedded in the BIOS. The install media you get via the Media Creation Tool will read and use it automatically. That embedded key is also god for 32 bit or 64 bit installs.
    Thanks, that's good news

    Hi there

    You most certainly could run the application in a Windows VM -- would probably even run on XP or possibly even Windows 98 which would take a Miniscule amount of resources when used as a Virtual Machine.

    If you do use Windows 98 Generic key is VP9VV-VJW7Q-MHY6W-JK47R-M2KGJ

    For XP / W7 serials you have to use your own ones.

    For using VM probably the easiest for you is to have W7 - X64 as the OS with XPmode for running the software.

    BTW you are 100% correct about not wanting glossy screens --they are a PIG out of doors and in bright light with reflections all over the place -- a decent matte (non glossy screen) is ideal - especially if you are doing a lot of "Officy" type stuff and not merely browsing the web.

    thanks for the W8 key....will use this OS in a VM
