    I thought most hardware devices allow up to five region changes; I don't know how the Windows would work.

    I'd think it may not be possible due to the ability of a computer program to track all the servers a request for purchase or download has to go through to get data from point A to point Z. As far as I've seen, changing the regions up to 5 times applies mostly to playing of movie DVDs but the last change remains permanent for that installation of Windows. And then there's the Export and Import laws of countries that will get in the way, for example there are laws prohibiting Exporting some programs out of the USA.

    Hi:

    It may or may not work.
    But it's probably not legal, as @Berton mentioned (because it's most likely illegal to attempt to bypass geographic restrictions on exporting software and other products).

    Because of the forum's piracy policy, I don't think you'll find anyone here willing to endorse such an approach.

    Cheers,
